DAILY PERMIT - New in 2020-2021

If a student will report to campus for four or more hours per day less than once a week, the daily permit could be a cost-effective option. These single-use, digital permits are sold in increments of five, with each permit costing $12.

Prior to purchase, the student should compare the cost of a student permit with the cost of their needed quantity of daily permits. It is our hope that this new, flexible parking option can accommodate blended learning and work arrangements. View more daily permit details.

Requesting your daily permits: Use this Google Form for students. Daily Permits must be requested at least two business days before you need to park. Permits are available in increments of five and can be paid for through your parking account.

Bundle packs will not be sold during the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 semester. If you have unused hang tag permits from a previous bundle pack purchase, we will honor those.

permit types

Commuter permit: Provides parking for students who need to park on campus during the day but does not allow for overnight parking in commuter lots.

Resident permit: Allows resident students to keep their cars on campus 24/7.

Overnight storage permit: Provides parking for any non-resident student needing to store their vehicle overnight on campus.

Temporary medical permits

Students with medical conditions that require different parking arrangements than assigned may contact the University Health Center. The University Health Center evaluates individual cases and determines if a medical accommodation is necessary. Typically, this results in permission to park in any student lot.
