2016-17 Student Parking Permits - $154.00

Space for parking on campus is limited. All motorists who wish to park vehicles in campus lots must purchase a permit or pay at a meter or pay station. Parking is not free anywhere on campus. Permit serves as permission to park and does not guarantee a space. The university is not responsible for any damage to a vehicle operated or parked on campus. Parking is prohibited in yellow and white curb zones, fire zones, no parking areas, bus zones, crosswalks, driveways, sidewalks, near fire hydrants and/or dumpsters and other areas noted with signage.
While there usually is a parking space available on campus, keep in mind that it may not be in the immediate vicinity of your intended destination. We encourage you to arrive early and allow enough time to walk to your classess, work, meetings and other activities. If all of the student parking lots are full, please call Parking Services office for an alternate parking option. Do not park at a meter or pay station without paying. Possession of a permit is not a valid excuse to park in an unauthorized area.
Student permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis, until the permit sales maximum is reached. (Permit sales priority for next academic year is offered to current students in April each year.) 2017-2018 annual parking permit $154.00, spring semester $92.00, and summer $39.00.
