Important Information

On special occasions (i.e., sporting events, concerts, commencement, etc.) provisional parking and traffic limitations may be imposed by Public Safety (including other law enforcement officers called in to assist Public Safety) or Parking & Transportation as required by conditions that prevail. Please refer to parking instructions provided with scheduled events.

Student Parking


All students who reside in Residence Halls on campus will be restricted to their assigned parking area between the hours of 7:30 am & 4pm, Monday – Friday. All resident students shall park vehicles in campus lots which are labeled with letters on the campus map corresponding to the letter on their parking permit during restricted times. Lots are designated RESIDENT PERMIT PARKING ONLY and are enforced 24/7.


All commuter students shall park in their designated lot, at the RAC, in 30 minute parking or at the Stadium during restricted times.

Any student who changes his or her address must report it immediately to Parking & Transportation. Failure to do so may jeopardize parking privileges and/or result in fines.

Temporarily Disabled Students

Temporarily disabled students who have their motor vehicle properly registered and who have secured a “temporary access permit” may at any time, park their vehicle in any marked space designated for Faculty/Staff, Commuter, Resident, or Visitor parking, but may not park in disabled spaces without a State issued placard, nor in any other reserved space.

Faculty & Staff Parking

All faculty and staff personnel shall park vehicles on campus streets and lots designated by Faculty & Staff Parking signs. Faculty and staff cannot park in any student or visitor parking.

Many Faculty and Staff lots will be controlled by parking gates. Access is gained through a bar code or proximity computer chip on the bottom of the hang tag parking permit. Return the hang tag to the rear view mirror after access is gained. Illegally parked cars in these areas are subject to additional fines and/or towing.

Students Who Are Children of Faculty or Staff Members

Students attending Georgia Southern University who are children of faculty or staff members may park vehicles only in student lots. Lost or stolen Faculty and Staff hang tags must be reported to Parking & Transportation immediately. A replacement fee of $10 may apply.


Students and staff may appeal a parking citation by accessing their MyGeorgiaSouthern portal and selecting the Parking Permits & Citations link. Those unable to appeal online must submit a written appeal form obtainable at Parking & Transportation.

Appeals must be made to the Parking & Transportation Office within seven (7) calendar days after ticketing. After seven (7) calendar days, the right to appeal is forfeited.

If appeals are not granted by Parking & Transportation, they may be submitted to the Parking & Transportation Appeals Committee. The Committee’s findings are final. When an appeal is denied, the citation to which it pertains becomes due and payable.

Visitor Parking

Visitors are those who are neither students nor employees of the University or its affiliates who occasionally have a need to park on campus.

Visitor parking spaces are provided on some streets and lots and are designated as UNIVERSITY VISITOR PARKING ONLY. These are not for use by faculty, staff, or students.

All Visitors should obtain a visitor parking permit from the Parking & Transportation office or the Welcome Center in Lewis Hall. There is no charge for visitor parking permits.

Faculty, staff and students are not allowed to park in visitor spaces between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Disabled Vehicles

If your vehicle becomes disabled and cannot be moved, call the Parking & Transportation Office at 912-478-7275 immediately. We will add your vehicle to the Disabled Vehicle Log and you will be given 24 hours to have it moved. On weekends and at night, call Public Safety at 912-478-5234.

Georgia’s Vehicle Emissions Inspection & Maintenance (I/M) Program

Vehicle emissions testing is required annually in the 13 metro Atlanta counties in Georgia in order for motorists to complete their vehicle registration. If you and your vehicle are temporarily located well outside of the metro Atlanta area because you are a student, in the military or have business obligations, you may qualify for an Out of Area Extension.
