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. Parking permits may be purchased at half-price by students taking two courses or less.
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. For more information please refer to our online parking permit site.
The University encourages the use of bicycles as an economical and environmentally sound means of transportation. Bike racks are provided throughout campus. (See Parking Map for locations.) 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. Bicycles are tagged at the end of each semester and if not removed within three days, they will be removed from the bicycle rack.
Motorcycles may be parked free in designated areas. Designated areas are provided in Lots C, E, L, M, and N.
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. (See Parking Map for locations)
Residence students living in Aperture Park may purchase a parking permit through Housing Service (C420). Residence students living in dorms may purchase a permit from the Cash Office.
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. Applications are accepted at the Security office (L911). As most of these parking areas are generally full, Parking Services maintains a waiting list for these areas.
An annual permit is the best value. Part-time staff are charged a reduced rate.
