All parking registrations, including for spring and summer, must be made through the Parking Portal. Eligible students include Commuters, Law Students, and Resident Juniors and Seniors who will be attending classes this upcoming academic year. Resident Freshman and Sophomores are not permitted to have vehicles on campus. For those with medical or internship parking needs, please fill out the Parking Exception Application
Undergraduate students are allowed one permit and one vehicle which they or a member of their household must own. Proof of Ownership is required to register for parking. Permits are valid only for the lot indicated. Permits will be virtual excluding the I-1 Garage which uses a permit decal to trigger the gate system for entry and exit. Decals must be permanently affixed in the correct location and visible at all times. Only resident students are allowed to park or store their vehicle overnight.  Please contact Parking if you need to leave your vehicle for the summer.
Parking on campus is limited and the nearest lot to your location may not be available. If a lot is waitlisted, ordering the permit that is available will add you to the waitlist. If space is available in a waitlisted lot, we will contact you in the order the other permits were purchased. Parking staff may direct you to an alternative lot throughout the year due to major events.
All student permits are valid through the end of the academic year. If you will be taking a summer class, you must register for a summer parking permit beginning in May. Registration for the Spring Semester begins the last week of Fall semester.

To affix your decal to your windshield, remove all prior year decals. Failure to do this will result in the current decal not operating correctly.

While sitting in the driver's seat, place the decal with the image facing out in the center of the windshield below the mirror. Decals must have a two-inch or more distance from other transponders, such as EZ Pass. 


The Parking Office is located in Garey Hall.
