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.

Spring 2022 Permit Rate Information

Rates for both fall and fall/spring permits purchased during the fall 2021 semester will remain unchanged from the 2020-2021 academic year. Please note, however, that a student permit rate increase may be enacted for spring-only permits purchased beginning in January. Information on any spring semester rate increases will be shared on the Transportation Services website before the end of the fall semester, and if enacted, would not impact permits already purchased during the fall semester.
