Faculty and staff who only wish to bring a motorcycle to campus may purchase an annual motorcycle-access permit from the Parking Office, valid for parking in designated motorcycle spaces only in all faculty/staff parking areas where such spaces are available. The permit fee is $62, payable by cash, check or money order, LionCash+, or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). These permits are now available at the Parking Office, located at 1 Eisenhower Parking Deck and open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Motorcycle Parking at Gated Parking Facilities Prohibited
During installation of new gate equipment at the East, HUB and Nittany parking decks, the service company performing the installation brought forth a safety concern regarding motorcycles entering through the gated equipment. After consulting with the manufacturer, parking industry peers, and the University’s Risk Management Office, it was confirmed that the speed at which current-generation gated equipment operates could pose a serious safety issue for motorcyclists. With the safety of all customers in mind, all parties have agreed to prohibit all motorcycle parking at these facilities (East, HUB and Nittany decks), effective immediately. To accommodate motorcyclists displaced from the gated facilities, additional motorcycle parking spaces have added to the Eisenhower Parking Deck, Lot Green B near Ford Building and Lot Yellow R near Ag Administration.
