West Village resident permits are valid at all times in designated resident parking areas of the West Village garage and all Towson Center lots (except 21a) as posted. West Village resident permits are not valid in the “overflow” areas of the West Village garage until after 3 p.m. West Village resident permits are also valid in commuter areas after 3 p.m. and in faculty/staff areas outside the restricted hours posted on signage.

Millennium Hall Permits

Millennium Hall parking permits are available to a portion of Millennium Hall residents as determined and distributed by the Millennium Hall management company. The Millennium Hall permit is not transferrable, it only can be used by the person to whom it was issued.

Millennium Hall permits are valid in the Millennium Hall lots and all Towson Center overflow parking areas as posted. Millennium Hall permits are not allowed in the overflow areas of the West Village garage until after 3 p.m. Millennium Hall permits are also valid in commuter areas after 3 p.m. and in faculty/staff areas outside the restricted hours posted on signage. Students are prohibited from utilizing/obtaining a Towson University and a Millennium Hall parking permit. Only one permit may be associated with a vehicle at any one time.

Parking Waitlist 

If space in your preferred lot is sold out, you can sign up for the wait list through your eParking account. Having a space on the wait list does not guarantee that a parking permit will become available for you. An annual West Village resident permit can be purchased while on the wait list for your first choice. Enforcement of resident lots is 24/7 while the university is in session.

Change in Student Status

Resident students who move off campus or no longer need their permit must exchange their resident permit for a commuter/overflow permit or cancel it for a prorated refund. Permit exchanges must be done in person at Auxiliary Services Business Office. Refunds are not issued after the last business day of March.
