What types of Parking are available?

Types of Parking

Student Parking

Most students with motor vehicles prefer to purchase a parking permit on a semester or 8 month basis. If you plan to attend classes through the summer, as well as the fall and spring semesters, you may want to consider an annual permit.

Students have the option of purchasing their permit at the Cash Office, or reserving a permit on-line. The Cash Office accepts cash or debit card only. Students using the on-line service may apply the charge for their permit to their student account or to a credit card.

Bicycle Parking

The University encourages the use of bicycles as an economical and environmentally sound means of transportation. Bike racks are provided throughout campus.  Bikes may not be locked to stairwells, trees, lamp posts, or other structures aside from the designated racks. Bikes are not permitted in buildings, tunnels or on the Athletic Track. The owner is solely responsible for his or her bicycle. Security may move or impound any bicycle that is not proper stored. Abandoned bicycles are tagged at the end of each semester and if not removed within three days, they will be removed from the bicycle rack.

Motorcycle Parking

Motorcycles may be parked free in designated areas. Designated areas are provided in Lots C, M, and N only.

Motorcycles may be parked in any permit area, provided the owner of the motorcycle has a valid university permit for that lot. The motorcycle license plate must be registered with Parking Services. The permit need not be displayed on motorcycles in these areas. Motorcycles not registered with Parking Services will be ticketed and/or towed.

Motorcycles parked in Pay and Display or at meters are subject to the posted parking fees. Pay and Display permits must be displayed on your motorcycle.

Motorized scooters are subject to the same regulations as motorcycles.

Residence Parking

Residence students living on campus may purchase a parking permit through Housing Service (C420).

Faculty and Staff Parking

Faculty and staff may purchase a general parking permit in any available permit parking lot on campus, except those areas reserved for resident students. Employees have the option of purchasing their permit through payroll deduction. Faculty and staff may apply to purchase a permit for the special parking areas. 

An annual permit is the best value.

Visitor and Short Term Parking

Visitor and short term parking is provided in various parking lots around campus. Parking is provided in Pay and Display permit parking areas.

Customers may purchase pay and display permits using coins, credit cards or via the Honkmobile app. Depending on which lot is accessed parking time periods can vary from 1 hour to all day. Pay and display parking is available in the following lots.
 

  • Lot C-1 hour minimum-4 hour maximum

Hours of operation for each Pay and display parking area is posted in each lot.  

Rates are posted on each dispenser.

Be sure to park in the lot adjacent to the dispensor a permit was purchased.
