Commuter students who purchase their permits from July 10 through August 11 will have the permits mailed to their home address. Permits purchased on or after August 11 will be held at our office for pickup during business hours.

West Campus Apartment students will need to pick up their permits from our office during business hours. 

Residence Hall and East Campus Suites students will pick up their permit when they check-in to their room, as part of the check-in process established by the Office of Housing and Residence Life.

Parking permits must be obtained for all vehicles that park on campus. The vehicle must be registered in the name of the student or his/her immediate family member. To purchase a permit, you must present a current vehicle registration and a valid driver's license.
