You apply for or renew your parking permit online through the Parking and Transportation E-Business Center. During this process:
Once you have completed the registration process, the parking permit will be mailed to you within one to two weeks. There is no option for in-person pick-up of the permit.
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 email Parking and Transportation Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a replacement cost unless you have a police report.
If you forget your hangtag for the day, you can get a guest parking permit from Parking and Transportation Services in 1Capen, or park at a metered spot or the Fronczak Visitor Lot.
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 Parking and Transportation Services in 1Capen 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.
