Parking Permit Information

Permits are required to park any time the University is open. If you do not have a permit, you must pay to park in a visitor area.

Unable to buy a permit at this time? If you are waiting on a financial aid refund or other funds before you can purchase a permit, you may buy a temporary permit to hold you over for $6 per day for as many days as you think you'll need.
