This semester will bring significant changes in how we manage parking across campus. One change is that the University will be using License Plate Reader (LPR) technology as an aid to parking enforcement. Here’s how it will work and what you need to know:

  • Vehicle-mounted cameras will scan license plates of parked cars and will alert the officer to vehicles that are not parked in their designated lot. 
  • It is especially important than when you register your vehicle, that the information is accurate. 
  • When parked, your vehicle registration plate must face the trafficway so that the LPR technology can read it.


Ineligible Students


Resident Freshmen and Sophomores are not permitted to have vehicles on campus. All students are encouraged to utilize the campus shuttle services, car share program, and/or public transportation. Please visit the Transportation Options for Students for more details on these services and where to find local business information.

All Parking Exception Requests must follow the application process. Ineligible students with a one-time emergency must contact the parking office through this form.  A temp pass will not be issued for longer than 1 week, the car must be parked in the lot it is assigned, a fee will be applied, and it cannot be renewed. Do Not bring your car to campus without prior approve from the parking office. Any violations incurred before contacting the parking office or before approval will not be waived.


Summer Students


On May 1, 2019, Summer Permits will be available for order. All students taking summer classes or residing on campus must have a permit for their vehicle in order to park on campus. After ordering the permit, it will be available for pick up at the parking office starting May 20, 2019.
