Campus departments should contact Parking Services prior to inviting a guest to obtain a departmental guest permit. Campus departments are strongly encouraged to mail the permit to their guest prior to his/her arrival on campus.

Attending a Meeting or Event

If you are attending a meeting or event, the event organizers should have reserved parking prior to the event and provided parking information in their literature/publicity. If you're unsure about where to park, contact your event's organizer for that information. If an event organizer has not reserved campus parking, you must locate a metered space or a legal space on a city street.

Loading/Unloading Permit

University Service areas are strictly regulated for authorized usage.

You may load/unload from a meter or a lot where your permit is valid.

If you must unload from another area, you must stop into Parking Services to pick up a short term loading/loading permit prior to loading/unloading.

Occasionally, very short term unloading can be arranged with a phone call. Again, authorization must be obtained prior to parking.

Service Permit

A Service permit is available to external service providers. If your agency or business is on campus frequently to provide services, contact Parking Services to inquire about a Service parking permit.

Student School Break Permits

Regular school year permits are not valid during the semester break, spring break, and August break. Students who will be leaving a vehicle on campus during those times must contact Parking Services about obtaining a special Break Period Permit.

Break permits are available at no additional cost to current permit holders.

Spring Semester Permits

Spring semester housing permits are available for both north and main campus parking lots.
