Parking Permits

Entering Fall Semester

The number of commuter permits for each lot is limited, so they are sold on a first-come first-served basis. Students with a lot preference should purchase their permits as early as possible. There is an additional fee for registering multiple vehicles. All permit fees are pro-rated through the academic year.


Commuter Lots: $160

Permits are lot specific. Can utilize 30 minute spaces around campus. RAC and stadium parking also permitted.


Resident Lots: $160

All students who reside in Residence Halls on campus will be restricted to their assigned parking area between the hours of 7:30 am and 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Resident students will park their vehicles in the campus lots which are labeled with letters on the campus map corresponding to the letter on their parking permit. Resident permits are also valid at RAC.

Permits enforced in Resident Lots 24/7.


Faculty & Staff: $100

Faculty and staff will park their vehicles in lots designated by Faculty and Staff parking signs. Many Faculty and Staff lots are controlled by parking gates and access is gained with a hang tag permit. Faculty and Staff permits are not allowed to park in Car Pool spaces.   Permits valid only on registered vehicles.

 

Student Carpooling: $110

In an effort to reduce the number of cars on campus, we offer Car Pool Permits. As an incentive to join a car pool, we provide preferential parking to each car pool group. Students will be able to share the cost of the permit and the expense of driving to campus. If you live in the Non – Commuter Zone or in a Resident Hall, you cannot be a member of a car pool. Students enrolled in a Car Pool are not eligible for any other permit.

On days when multiple vehicles must be driven to campus, one would park in a carpool and the additional drivers would park at Paulson Stadium and use the transit system to access the center of campus.

Car pools must have two or more members. Groups qualifying for car pool status will be able to purchase one parking permit to share and will be allowed to park in the more convenient Car Pool Parking areas on campus. Car pool spaces are available in Lots 21, 32, 41, and 42. Car Pools will be assigned to only one Car Pool lot. Permit sales for these spaces will be limited to assure availability.  All members of the Car Pool should enroll for the opportunity to purchase a permit.


Faculty & Staff Carpooling: $100

In an effort to reduce the number of cars on campus, we are offering Car Pool Permits. As an incentive to join a car pool, we are offering preferential parking at a discounted rate. Employees will be able to share the cost of the permit and the expense of driving to campus. Employees enrolled in a Car Pool are not eligible for a permanent faculty/staff permit.

Car pool members will be given some scratch off permits to be used sparingly in cases of emergency. The scratch off permits will allow users to park in faculty/staff parking on those occasions when they have to drive to campus.

Car pools must have two or more members. Groups qualifying for car pool status will be able to purchase one parking permit to share and will be allowed to park in the more convenient Car Pool Parking spaces on campus. Car pool spaces are available in Marvin Pittman, Herty, and Newton, Faculty/Staff lots. (see Faculty/Staff Car Pool map). Car Pools will be assigned to only one Car Pool lot.


Motorcycle: $50

Motorcycle permits are required for all motorcycles (including scooters, motorbikes and minibikes being 2 or 3 wheeled with an engine size greater than 50cc). Motorcycles are permitted to park in any lot within a properly-signed Motorcycle Parking area. At the owner’s option, motorcycle permit holders may also utilize end-of-row areas denoted by yellow hatches whereas they do not interfere with traffic flow, crowding vehicle parking stalls, ADA access to sidewalks and/or not signed as a No Parking area. Permit placement shall be on the suspension forks of the front wheel.
