Permits and parking guidelines for commuter students.
Permits are required to park on campus from 6 a.m. Monday through 3 p.m. Friday. Several permit options are available for commuter students.
Core permits are available to students who have earned more than 30 units who are not living in campus residence halls on university property, whether the building is managed by the university or an outside company. Golden ID students are also eligible to purchase a Core permit, but will not receive a discount on this permit type.
Core permits are valid in core campus in designated core and overflow (Stadium Lots only) parking areas at all times, and in faculty/staff areas outside the restricted hours posted on signage. General services, resident life, and public safety areas are restricted at all times.
Freshman with fewer than 30 units may only purchase Overflow or Evening permits.
Non-degree seeking students as well as other select groups of commuter students may
only purchase Overflow or Evening permits.
Overflow permits are available to students with less than 30 units who are not living in campus residence halls, including those managed by outside contractors. Some non-degree seeking students who are officially part of the IIR, joint academic program, or Golden ID students may purchase an overflow permit at a reduced rate. Retirees and alumni with no other campus affiliation may also purchase an overflow permit.
In addition, Overflow permits will still be valid at the Stadium Lots near SECU Arena and Johnny Unitas Stadium where signs state "Overflow All TU Permits Valid in This Area.” Overflow permits are also valid in faculty/staff areas after 5 p.m. and on weekends, as posted on signage.
Evening permits are available to students who are not living in the campus residence halls, including those managed by an outside company such as Millennium Hall, Tubman, West Village, Barton, Douglass Houses, West Village 2 and Marshall Houses.
Evening permits are only valid after 3 p.m. in “core” areas, all “overflow” parking areas (Stadium Lots) as posted, and in “faculty/staff” areas after the restricted hours posted on signage. If an evening permit holder needs to park on campus before 3 p.m., they need to purchase a Visitor’s parking permit from the ParkMobile App or the visitor paystation then park in a designated visitor or overflow area (Stadium Lots). Ensure to have your license plate information upon purchase for pay by plate option and purchase enough time to remain parked in visitor area. An evening permit is NOT valid in visitor spaces at any time.
Weekly and monthly Stadium Lot permits are available to any student not living in campus residence halls, including those managed by outside contractors. Weekly and monthly permits are non-refundable.
Weekly and monthly permits are only valid in the Stadium Lots, except for Lot 8a where the signs state “All TU Permits valid in this area.” Weekly and monthly permits are NOT valid in the overflow areas of the West Village Garage. These permits are also valid in core areas after 3 p.m. and in faculty/staff areas outside the restricted hours posted on signage.
Commuters should look for the parking signs below. Please read all parking signs carefully and park only where authorized.
