Parking Permits Overview
Students must obtain a parking permit and properly display a valid decal to park or operate a vehicle on campus.
Parking permits are limited in number, and cannot be offered to all students. To understand our limitations, and to get a permit, see below.
THE REQUEST APPLICATION IS OPEN
Permits for the Fall and/or Spring semester may be requested as early as May 25 for the coming year. We urge students to request early, and expect demand to exceed the supply. We allocate a limited number of permits each semester, and that number has been reached in recent semesters. If the Restricted type of parking permits are available, we begin to make notifications in mid-to-late July. However, as our demand for parking becomes clearer, we grant Restricted permits as available on a rolling basis.
Requests submitted after July 31 are less likely to be granted, and such requests may not qualify for convenient pick-up at residence hall check-in.
If this is your first time requesting a parking permit, please read our step-by-step directions on how to request a permit before proceeding.
Parking permits requested by July 31, by students living in college housing (including Ocean View), may be picked-up at residence hall check-in. THIS CONVENIENT PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO COVID-19. WE MAY BE DISTRIBUTING FALL DECALS THROUGH INSIDE MAIL. All local commuting students will pick-up their permits at the Housing & Parking Office in upstairs Kerrwood 212, beginning August 15. THIS CONVENIENT PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO COVID-19. WE MAY BE DISTRIBUTING FALL DECALS THROUGH INSIDE MAIL. Office hours are 9:00am-4:00pm (M-F), but you may call if you need to arrange an earlier or later pick-up time during weekdays.
Request a RESTRICTED Permit
Students with second-year standing (26-58 units) may request a Restricted permit.
*If you are a first-year student with more than 26 units, you are not authorized to obtain a permit due to our Conditional Use Permit.
Request a REGULAR Permit
Students with third- or fourth-year standing (59+ units) may reserve a Regular permit.
