Off-Campus Student Permits

Students living off campus who wish to park on campus at University Park are required to register for and display a valid student parking permit. Commuter permits are designed for off-campus students who possess overnight parking at their residence, but wish to park on campus for class and other activities. Off-Campus Storage permits are designed for off-campus students in need of a permanent parking location for their vehicle.
