2015-2016 Student Permits
Ready For Pick Up

Students who ordered a 2015-2016 commuter or residential parking permit online may pick up their permit in our office. These permits are not valid until the Fall 2015 term.

Residential students who purchased online and selected “Pickup at OMI (RAC)” must collect their permits at the Recreation Activity Center during Operation Move-In on August 14, 2015. On this date, those who selected “Pickup in Office” will be directed to the Parking and Transportation building to collect their permit. If you are unsure of which delivery method you selected, please call or email our office.
After August 14, any pre-orders not claimed at OMI will be returned to our office for pick up.

There is a $5 fee for each additional vehicle registered to a permit. Fees for additional vehicles must be paid when picking up your permit.


Please purchase / pick up your permit as soon as possible!

Please stop by our office at your earliest convenience; students can avoid long wait times normally experienced during the week preceding fall term. Same-day service for online orders must be processed by a cashier, otherwise orders are processed for pick up the following day.
Parking permits are required when classes are in session, including the first day of any term. All permits must be properly affixed to the vehicle prior to parking on campus.

For permit and purchase information, see Parking Permits.


AREA CLOSURE: Counseling/Health

Contractors will begin work on a Lake Wells drainage outlet on Monday, June 22. All faculty, staff, and health center visitor parking on the back side of the Counseling Center and Health Services Building will be allocated to the contractor.

While construction is ongoing, we ask that faculty and staff utilize the gated lot across Forest Drive. Patrons driving to Health Services must utilize the spaces in the front drive of the Counseling Center building.

This project is expected to carry through the remainder of summer term classes and into the first weeks of fall term. We ask users normally parking in this area to plan accordingly.

A layout of the affected areas may be reviewed below.
Please contact Parking & Transportation with any questions or concerns. We appreciate your flexibility during these closures for construction.


AREA CLOSURE: Deal Hall Abatement

Due to an abatement project at Deal Hall, a portion of the faculty & staff parking spaces directly behind the building will be allocated to the contractor beginning Monday, June 22.

This area includes all 24-hour permit enforced spaces normally reserved for those faculty and staff members working after hours at nearby buildings. Parking and Transportation has allocated a temporary area of 24-hour enforced spaces. This temporary area will be the spaces next to the handicap area directly behind the Henderson Library.

A layout of the affected areas may be reviewed below.
Please contact Parking & Transportation with any questions or concerns. We appreciate your flexibility during these closures for construction.


July 24 – August 17; Information on Permits, Office Hours & Transit Service

Beginning Friday July 24, (between Summer and Fall Terms), parking permits will not be required to park on campus. General safety, state law and 24-hour space violations will remain enforced.

During this time, transit will not be operating. All transit service will resume on Monday, August 17 2015. Please visit the Campus Transit Page for route information by academic term.


During July 24 – August 14, Parking and Transportation will be open Monday thru Friday, 8am – 5pm.

To better assist our patrons, we will have additional hours on:
Saturday August 15, 12pm – 6pm
Sunday August 16, 1pm – 5pm

We will resume normal office hours at 7:30am, Monday August 17 2015. Parking permits will be required beginning Monday, August 17 2015. All parking policies will be enforced after this date.

We urge students returning early to the Statesboro area to stop by and either pick up their online permit order or purchase in-office as soon as possible. We experience a high volume of patrons in the week leading up to the Fall Term, resulting in long wait times.

Any student who can finalize their parking needs in advance is greatly appreciated by both our office and their fellow patrons!

For students who have already purchased their permit online, please read this post.
