Academic Year Parking (August - May)

Undergraduates are eligible for campus parking permits by exemption only.

Undergraduate students facing an extraordinary hardship, medical condition, or disability or who otherwise demonstrate a compelling need for a personal vehicle may apply for a permit. A “compelling need” is generally defined by necessary and frequent travel that cannot be accommodated by University, commercial, regional, or local transit options.  Exemptions do not mean proximal parking – parking permits will be assigned to lots on the periphery of campus. Having a permit in a previous year does not guarantee a permit will be renewed, student must apply for a parking exemption each year.

Please note that you are not permitted to bring your car to campus until the request process is complete and if approved, the permit has been issued by Transportation and Parking Services (TPS). Enrolled students are not considered visitors and will be cited if found using visitor permits.

Permit exception requests

Requests submitted after July 15 will not be reviewed until after September 15.
