Parking Permits

Parking permits are issued for a specific area or lot. All parking permits must be displayed in the lower portion of the windshield/drivers side when parking on campus. Permits are intended to be affixed to the windshield and must be visible to parking enforcement at all times when the vehicle is on campus. Failure to display a permit could result in your vehicle being cited or wheel-locked.

  • Permits may be transferred and used on more than one vehicle but cannot be used on more than one vehicle at a time. You are responsible for your permit at all times and all citations written while your permit is displayed. When transferring your permit to another vehicle - the vehicle information must be entered into the parking management system.
  •  Permits that are stolen will be replaced for a $10.00 fee. A police report describing forcible entry must be presented before a stolen permit will be replaced.
  • Permit replacement or exchanges, at the request of the owner, will be charged an exchange fee of $10.00.

  • A vehicle may display only one permit type.
  • Persons who provide false information are subject to referral to Student Affairs, loss of any future permit privileges, forfeiture of permit fee, and may be subject to criminal charges. An additional fine may be assessed for a fraudulently obtained permit. The Public Safety department reserves the right to request additional documentation to verify address, affiliation and vehicle registration.
