Registration for on-campus parking may be done on-line or in person at the Parking & Card Services Office in Fisher Hall. You may register anytime on or past the date your registration sequence begins as identified in the “Parking Registration Timeline” below. The availability of spaces in your desired lot is contingent upon the number remaining at the time you complete registration. The permit is lot-specific (“non-roving”) and, as such, only valid for the lot in which you are assigned through the permit’s expiration date.
• Purchasing a parking permit for a particular lot does not guarantee a space at all times in that lot.
• Vehicles with valid permits may also park in the “Open Parking Lots” such as the Shuttle Lots at the Reynolds Center Arena Lot - East 8th Street and South Harvard Avenue, and the “Harvard Lot” - South Gary Place and South Harvard Avenue.
• Campus parking lots may be closed for special events, athletic activities, and/or for University operations and maintenance.

The University has upgraded to a new online registration process for all members of the community, long-term guests and affiliated visitors. Any vehicle that is parked on campus at any time, must be registered in the permitting process and have the appropriate documentation uploaded. Through the online process you will be able to secure a permit by following the proper steps, uploading the proper documents and processing your payment. Form of payments accepted online are credit card, payroll deduction for University employees, University Business Office account for students, or electronic checks.
Registration in Person
Registration may also be done in person at the Parking & Card Services Office during normal business hours of Monday – Friday (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.). The vehicle’s owner is to provide the vehicle’s description and license tag number. Lot Permit Rates (insert link to rates) vary according the classification of the registrant as a “Resident-only Lot”, “Non-resident Standard Lot”, “Non-resident Premium Lot”, “Shuttle Lot”, and the time of year the permit is purchased. Acceptable payment when registering person is cash or credit card, or may be charged to your University Business Office account or as a payroll deduction for University employees.
Also, the University now requires that you submit current and accurate Driver License and Proof of Insurance for each vehicle that is to be parked at anytime on campus. An individual can do this during the registration process or at a later time by returning to the Registration link and clicking on Manage Your Vehicle. Below you will find the information that is required for each uploaded document:
Driver License: Your name, photo, and license expiration date. (Driver License must be current on date permit is purchased or the date the permit period begins, whichever is later.)
Proof of Vehicle Insurance: Your name, vehicle information and insurance coverage dates. (Insurance cover dates must be current on the date permit is purchases or the date the permit period begins, whichever is later.)
Before any permit is dispersed all vehicle information, documents uploaded, and all required information must be verified. Each vehicle created in the database, must have the proper documents attached in the system. Below is the information of how the permits will be dispersed:
Employees, Vendors, and Faculty: Any permit purchased prior to August 20th, 2014 will be mailed to the mailing address provided to us during registration. It is the responsibility of the permit holder to provide a valid USPS mailing address. Any permit purchased after August 20th, you may either have it mailed to your or you can pick it up after your information is verified.
Students: Students must pick up their permit from the Parking and Card Services Office. Permits will be available to students on August 19th, 2014. The Parking and Card Services Office will be open from 8am-5pm Monday-Friday.
Proper Display of Authorized Permit
Upon registration, a parking decal will be issued that is to be affixed to the vehicle or golf cart on the inside, lower portion of the passenger-side front windshield. For motorcycles, mopeds and scooters, the decal must be attached to the right-hand, upper arm of the cycle's right-front fork.
Permits are non-transferable to another person and/or their vehicle. If the permit has been purchased, but the decal is not properly affixed to the vehicle, it is considered to be the same type of violation as a “No-permit” category.
Parking decals must be removed from your vehicle under the following conditions:
1. Change of vehicle ownership
2. Termination of association with the University
3. Permit expiration at midnight (12:00 a.m.) the Sunday before the first day of the fall academic term
4. Improper placement of parking decal
Lost or Damaged Parking Permits
Lost parking decals may require the purchase of a new permit without any guarantee of retaining the same parking lot assignment as the one that was previously designated. Any new parking lot choice is made based on the availability of spaces in the authorized lots.
Damaged permits are to be replaced at the Parking & Card Services Office. If there is a sufficient portion of the parking decal removed and returned for identification, the replacement may be at no charge.
Temporary Permits for Current Permit Holders (up to 10 (ten) days)
Vehicle permits may be moved from a registered vehicle to another registered vehicle such that temporary permits may not be needed. However, as a convenience to current permit holders, temporary permits for unregistered vehicles are available from the Parking & Card Services Office at no cost. Temporary permits are issued for no more than two (2) weeks. Temporary permits cannot be used to avoid vehicle registration.
