Lot 82

Registration dates and first-year student eligibility changes for spring 2022 student parking

Friday, December 10, 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa -- Student parking registration for the spring 2022 semester will be available exclusively online on the following dates: 

  • Tuesday, Jan. 4 at noon (Off-campus student Commuter - SCR) 
  • Wednesday, Jan. 5 at noon (Off-campus long-term storage - P43, YAS) 
  • Thursday, Jan. 6 at noon (Resident student permits - B11, L22, L42, L81, L82, L83, YWH, YAS) 
  • Friday, Jan. 7 at noon (First-year students – Lot 83 only)

Effective for the spring 2022 semester, first-year students may register online for Lot 83 parking without the need to submit a formal parking request.


  • Active Penn State ID and Access account 
  • License plate(s) information (vehicles must be owned by the student or a member of the student's immediate family) 


Upon completion of the registration, students print a temporary permit to display on their dashboard for immediate parking. Students may return to their account to print the permit if a printer is not available when completing the registration. 

Permits will be mailed to the student's local or campus address. To ensure prompt and accurate delivery, students must enter the complete address, including the street number and apartment number. Failure to notify the State College Post Office of a new off-campus address before registering for a permit may prevent permit delivery. 

Once the permanent permit has been delivered, the printable temporary permit must be discarded, and the permanent permit displayed on the rear-view mirror of the vehicle. 

Any students encountering issues while attempting to register for a permit are urged to avoid double-clicking or using the back button, as these actions may result in errors with your transaction. If issues arise while attempting to complete the registration, please exit the site and contact Transportation Services for assistance.


General student parking registration will not be available at the Transportation Services Office. However, students eligible for upgrades (such as select graduate assistants and student athletes) and students with a state-issued Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) placard who wish to purchase a supplemental parking permit for core parking access must visit the Transportation Services Office to obtain these permits. General student parking registration must be completed online prior to applying for these options. Students registering for short-term and one-day permits must also register at the Transportation Services Office.


Before deciding to bring a vehicle to campus, students are encouraged to explore the University's alternative transportation option, Zipcar. Zipcar provides on-campus vehicles available for rent by the hour or day at four on-campus locations for convenient pick-up and return. More information on this service can be found on our website.
