Confirmation Permits

Confirmation permits are temporary permits that one may print out after the online purchase of a permit. The confirmation permit is to be placed face up on the dashboard of your vehicle to allow temporary access to the parking structure to which your permit dictates. The confirmation permit is for valid for five (5) calendar days only. Once your hang tag is received, the confirmation permit should be discarded and the permanent hang tag placed on the rearview mirror of your vehicle.

**Parking During Winter Break

If your permit expires at the end of Fall semester, you must renew/purchase a Spring Semester permit during the renewal period and choose a beginning date to suit your needs.

If you do not yet want to purchase a Spring permit, you may purchase a temporary permit to cover winter break (to buy a temporary permit, you need to come to Access Services in Crawford Hall, room 18).

To renew your Fall permit for Winter break only:
Bring your current hang tag to Access Services along with your vehicle information. You may then purchase a temporary permit to cover your needs.

If you have a permit that expires at the end of Spring semester, you do not need to do anything. Your Spring permit will be valid over winter break.
