Summer 2022 student parking registration begins May 9

Tuesday, April 19, 2022

University Park student parking registration for summer 2022 will be available exclusively online at the Transportation Services website beginning Monday, May 9 at noon.

Students who will only be enrolled in Summer Session II should wait to register until Monday, Jun. 27, at noon, when prorated rates for Summer Session II will go into effect.

All students, regardless of semester standing, are eligible to register for summer parking.

Information on available student permit options is available on our website. For students who will not need on-campus parking prior to the start of summer session II, permit rates will be prorated at the beginning of each month. Current prorated rates will appear at checkout when purchased online.


  • 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.

Students will be able to pick up their official parking permit from the Transportation Services Office beginning two business days after they complete online permit registration. Permits must be picked up by the date that their temporary permit expires (25 days from registration date). The Transportation Services Office is located at 1 Eisenhower Deck, and hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Students will need to bring their Penn State ID when they come to pick up their permit. 

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.
