Parking permit use guide:

  • Parking is enforced 24 hours a day; 7 days a week. Permits must be displayed in your vehicle in the lower left of the windshield or from a hang tag on the rear-view mirror.

  • If lost or destroyed, a student can purchase a replacement permit at full price.

  • Permits are valid in student parking spaces only. If a student is parked in a staff or visitor space, a citation will be issued.

  • Motorcycles do not need a permit as long as they park in designated motorcycle parking space.

  • If a temporary disabled student permit is needed, stop by Accessibility Support Center Room 1070 Upstairs behind the library in The Hub.

  • Parking permits cannot be mailed. If you are picking one up for someone else, you will need a signed letter from that person giving you permission. Remember to bring a photo ID of yourself, as well.
