Registering for Student Parking

In advance of registering, please view the list of student permit types and their associated fees.  Spring permits are valid through August 20, 2021. Know what type of permit best fits your needs based on your living and learning arrangement during Spring 2021.

Registrations can be purchased and managed through our parking management system. Students may have two vehicles on their registration at once; however, only ONE vehicle may be parked on campus at a time. Use our system to add or remove vehicles from your account.

Cancelling Your Registration

Students may cancel their parking registrations at any time by contacting When cancelling, please include your name and UID, as well as a message stating your intent to cancel your parking registration. 

NOTE: The parking refund schedule on our Student Parking Fees and Permit Types page will be adhered to regardless of any changes to the academic calendar, including changes related to COVID-19. Please read this refund addendum, new for the 2020-2021 academic year, in its entirety before purchasing your permit.

Parking Waitlist

If a student is unable to register because their preferred lot is full, they may join a parking waitlist.  Students can register for a waitlist through the parking management system. Waitlists are one of the tools we use to balance lot registrations at the beginning of the semester. As the semester progresses, we monitor lot capacity and availability. As spaces in lots become available, students on the waitlist are contacted via email and offered parking in the lot. Waitlist requests are open to any student regardless of parking status. They are free and expire at the end of every semester.

All resident students with 30 or more credits and commuter students and are eligible to register for on-campus parking. This academic year, Freshman resident students (defined as one with 0 to 29 credits who lives on campus) may register for parking without applying for an exception.

Applying for a Freshman Exception 

For the 2020 - 2021 academic year, Freshman resident students looking to park on campus may register for parking without applying for an exception. They will be assigned a parking lot based on lot availability.
