Student Parking Permits

Students may purchase Fall semester parking permits using the Online Parking System, after the renewal period in mid to late June or in person at Student Access Services in Tinkham Veale University Center.  Students with existing permits will receive an email to renew their parking. See more information about student renewals on the student renewal webpage.  Your parking options depend on whether you will be attending a graduate or undergraduate student program for the academic year and whether you are a commuter or resident.

Please select a date after July 1, 2024, as a start date for your Fall semester permit.

Double check the lot you are purchasing before you complete your transaction. Refunds for incorrectly selected parking lots will take 10-15 business days minus a $25 restocking fee. 

Parking permits are sold with the option of 2 expiration dates (end of fall or spring semester), but you choose your start date.

Undergraduate commuter parking options are: Lot 46 NRV Garage (north quad), Lot 47 Murray Hill Road (south quad)

Residential parking options are: Lot 46RC (the NRV garage) for Northside residents, Lot 57 for Southside residents, Lot 78 for Triangle Residents Only

Graduate commuters parking options for the south side are: Lot 44 and Lot 53 (Veale Garage)

Graduate commuter parking for north side are: Lot 29 (KSL/Thwing Garage) and Lot 46 (NRV Garage)


Important Mailing Information

  • Our system also allows us to mail the permit to you via US Postal Services.  Please be sure that you choose the correct address to which you want the permit mailed.  If your permit starts less than 10 days of the date of purchase, it will not be mailed, as you may not receive the permit in time.  You may pick up your permit at the Student Access Services Center at the Tinkham Veale University Center (TVUC) during business hours, if purchasing it within 10 days of when it starts.
  • Permits will not be mailed to University addresses.

Permit Pickup Deadline

There is a deadline each semester to pick up your permit from Student Access Services in Tinkham Veale University Center or your selected pick up location. Failure to pick up your permit will result in forfeiture of your parking space.  Permits not picked up will be charged a $25.00 restocking fee and refunded the remaining balance, minus any outstanding violations.  Forfeited permits will be sold to students on the waiting list.
