Commuter Student Eligibility
All Commuter students are eligible to purchase available Commuter parking permits
Commuter student parking permit holders are authorized to park in locations posted for use by either the “Commuter” or “Any Paid” permit types.
Affix your decal parking permit to the inside lower right-hand passenger side of the front windshield using its full, self-adhesive face. Do not display the decal permit in any other way. A parking decal must be properly displayed to be considered valid. Affixing the decal using any other means, partially affixing the decal using only a portion of its face, or not affixing the decal to the windshield at all renders the permit invalid.
Please familiarize yourself with the general parking permit regulatory information before requesting your University parking permit and privileges.
- The parking permits and privileges authorized by Commuter permits and Garage key cards are non-transferable and cannot be delegated.
- Any misuse of a University permit can result in the revocation of parking privileges.
- Individuals operating a vehicle with a lost or stolen permit are subject to possible arrest, in addition to sanctions available through the courts and the student code of conduct.
Graduate and undergraduate students are considered “students” even when employed by the University and are therefore are not eligible to purchase Employee permit types.
