  • Vehicle Information – Have with you the year, make, model, color, and license plate number.
  • Method of Payment – Have with you the method of payment. Forms of payment accepted on-line are credit/debit cards. Or, eligible University employees may select “Payroll Deduction”; students may elect to charge their Bursar Account. When registering in person at the office, cash and checks are also accepted.
  • Address – Enter your complete USPS (United States Postal Service) address, including the Building Name (if applicable) and Zip Code.

Parking Permit Rates
Purchasing a parking permit for a particular lot does not guarantee a space at all times in that lot. Campus lots may be closed for special events, athletic activities, and/or for University operations and maintenance. The permit issued is lot-specific (“non-roving”). Therefore, it is valid until the permit’s expiration date only for the lot in which you are assigned*.
Lot permit rates vary according to the time of year the permit is purchased and the lot selected. During the Academic Year, the rates are categorized as follows:

  • Motorcycles & Motorized Scooters: $25.00
  • Shuttle Permits: $25.00
  • Resident-only Lots: $50.00
  • Non-resident Standard and Dual-purposed Lots: $100.00
  • Non-resident Premium Lots: $500.00

Registrants purchasing a Shuttle Permit (SHU) can park in any of the four Shuttle Lots located on Harvard Avenue at the Reynolds Center Arena, the Harvard Lot at South Gary Place, the east end of the Keplinger/John Rogers Lot, and the Harvard East Lot on 4th Street. Vehicles registered with valid permits for other lots may also *overflow into these Shuttle Lots, space permitting.

Permit Delivery/Pickup
Parking decals are distributed following confirmation of the On-line Vehicle Registration process. With verification of updated records, current required documents uploaded and payment accepted, decals will be distributed to registrants according to the following process:

  • Residence Hall/House & Sorority House Residents: Pick-up in person during Check-in at your assigned fall housing site.
  • Apartment and Fraternity Residents: Present your photo ID at the Parking & Card Services Office during the hours below.
  • Off-Campus Students: Present your photo ID at the Parking & Card Services Office during the hours below.
  • Parking & Card Services’ Distribution Hours:
    • Begins – Sunday, August 14, 2016 (10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.)
    • Standard Business Hours – Monday through Friday * Excluding University Holidays (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.)

Proper Display of Authorized Permit
Upon Registration, a parking decal will be issued that is to be affixed to the vehicle 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. 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 the “No-permit” category.
