For the academic year, Freshman residents are eligible to purchase a parking permit. However, the number of permits available to Freshmen residents will be extremely limited. Freshman resident students are defined as any student with 29 or less credits who live in housing located on University property, including Millennium Hall, Paca, Tubman, Barton, Douglass, and Towson Run. Only West Village Garage resident permits will be available to Freshmen residents, regardless of where their housing is located on campus. Parking for West Village residents will be on the upper levels of the West Village Garage.
Resident Life parking spaces are restricted to eligible Resident Life employees with a valid Resident Life parking permit.
A waitlist will be available for Freshmen residents once all of the permits for sale allocated to them are sold. Having a space on the waitlist does not guarantee that a parking permit will become available for purchase.
Freshman residents who wish to request an exception to park on campus, may do so by completing a resident exception request form. Documentation must include all information as indicated on the form.
Exceptions will only be granted for extreme situations - typically those that are of a medical nature. Work related requests will not be considered. At its discretion, parking services will determine if an exception will be granted. If it is granted, the parking location will be determined by the department. Individuals receiving an exception should expect to be assigned parking at the Towson Center lots.
Freshman residents who are taking mini-mester classes may purchase a permit for this time. Specific sale dates will be posted in early December. The permit will be valid for use during mini-mester. Effective the first day of spring classes freshman residents who do not have a valid permit for the spring, must remove their vehicles from the campus.
