Parking Permits Overview
Students must obtain a parking permit and properly display a valid decal to park or operate a vehicle on campus.
Parking permits are limited in number, and cannot be offered to all students. To understand our limitations, and to get a permit, see below.
THE REQUEST APPLICATION IS OPEN
Permits for the Fall semester may be requested once the application is operational in the month of May. Spring semester permits may be requested in November, once the application has been modified to accept such requests. We urge students to request early, and expect demand to exceed the supply. We allocate a limited number of permits each semester, and that number has been reached in recent semesters. If the Restricted type of parking permits are available, we begin to make notifications in mid-to-late July. However, as our demand for parking becomes clearer, we grant Restricted permits as available on a rolling basis. WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER MANY RESTRICTED PERMITS THIS FALL, DUE TO COVID-19 AND THE LARGE NUMBER OF OFF-CAMPUS COMMUTERS.
Requests submitted after July 31 are less likely to be granted.
If this is your first time requesting a parking permit, please read our step-by-step directions on how to request a permit before proceeding.
Parking permits requested by July 31, by students living in college housing (including Ocean View), may be picked-up at residence hall check-in. THIS CONVENIENT PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO COVID-19. WE MAY BE DISTRIBUTING FALL DECALS THROUGH INSIDE MAIL. All local commuting students will pick-up their permits at the Housing & Parking Office in upstairs Kerrwood 212, beginning August 15. THIS CONVENIENT PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DUE TO COVID-19. WE MAY BE DISTRIBUTING FALL DECALS THROUGH INSIDE MAIL. Office hours are 9:00am-4:00pm (M-F), but you may call if you need to arrange an earlier or later pick-up time during weekdays.
Request a RESTRICTED Permit
Students having 26-58 units on record* may request a Restricted permit.
*If you are a first-year student with 26+ units, you are not authorized to obtain a permit due to our Conditional Use Permit. Upper class standing (for the purposes of permit eligibility) is not entirely determined by accumulated units.
Reserve a REGULAR Permit
Students with third- or fourth-year standing (59+ units) may reserve a Regular permit.
