Daily permits will be available for commuter students in their designated parking areas beginning Aug. 24 through ParkMobile and at pay stations. Daily permits on the main campus for Core commuter areas will cost $6/day. Daily parking will be available in Overflow spaces in West Village garage and stadium lots for $3/day.

Special Permit Rates


If it’s your only vehicle, you pay half the applicable permit rate. If it’s your second vehicle, link it to your primary permit. These permits must be obtained in person at the Auxiliary Services Business Office. Resident students are not permitted to have a second vehicle on campus.


Students must have a full-time, 20-hour graduate assistantship or two 10-hour assistantships to apply for a faculty/staff permit. Upon verification of your graduate assistant status, you are eligible to purchase a faculty/staff permit at the lowest faculty/staff rate. Please see rates for Faculty/Staff parking permits sold on a prorated basis.


Those associated with some special programs are eligible to purchase overflow or evening permits only. Individuals should check with their specific program administrator to determine what type of permit they are eligible to purchase.
