You apply for or renew your parking permit online through the Parking and Transportation E-Business Center. During this process:
Save time — have your parking permit mailed to you when you apply before August 1. All permits are mailed to arrive before the start of the fall semester.
You can pick up your hangtag from the Parking and Transportation Services office in 106 Spauilding Quad.
Your hangtag lets you park in designated areas on campus, based on your permit type. The hangtag must be visible from your rearview mirror whenever you are parked in a designated lot. Look for signs in each parking area to avoid getting a ticket.
If you are required to pay for your permit, you can pay online using an eCheck, credit card or debit card. You will be prompted to pay during the application process.
If your hangtag has been lost or stolen, please visit the Parking and Transportation office in 106 Spaulding Quad and complete a lost/stolen form. There will be a replacement cost unless you have a police report. You will typically receive a new hangtag immediately.
If you forget your hangtag for the day, you can get a guest permit from the Parking and Transportation office on North Campus, or park at a metered spot.
A guest parking permit allows you to park on campus for a specific day or range of dates. If you are visiting campus for an official academic purpose, ask the department you are visiting for a guest parking permit. You can also get a guest parking permit from the Parking and Transportation office in 106 Spaulding Quad on the North Campus.
A guest permit is typically required to park in a residence hall lot, except for weekends. Guests are not allowed to park in apartment parking lots.
You can add a car to your permit through the Parking and Transportation E-Business Center.
You will only receive one hangtag. However, you can use this hangtag for different vehicles, as long as each vehicle is registered on the same parking permit. Hang your tag from the rearview mirror of the vehicle you are driving that day.
