how to register for parking

Registration for Fall 2018 or Annual 2018-2019 permits is now open to all eligible students.

Registrations can be purchased and managed through our parking management system. Students may have two vehicles on their registration at once; however, only ONE vehicle may be parked on campus at a time. Use our system to add or remove vehicles from your account.

Terrapin Trail Garage.

When registering, please use an email that you check frequently. Important parking reminders and notifications will be sent to this email address. 

cancelling your registration

Students may cancel their parking registrations at any time. We offer refunds for student parking registration fees based on the schedule found on our Student Parking Fees and Permit Types page.

parking waitlist

If a student is unable to register because their preferred lot is full, they may join a parking waitlist.  Students can register for a waitlist through the parking management system. Waitlists are one of the tools we use to balance lot registrations at the beginning of the semester. As the semester progresses, we monitor lot capacity and availability. As spaces in lots become available, students on the waitlist are contacted via email and offered parking in the lot. Waitlist requests are open to any student regardless of parking status. They are free and expire at the end of every semester.

All commuter students and resident students with 30 or more credits are eligible to register for on-campus parking. Freshman resident students (defined as one with 0 to 29 credits who lives on campus) are not eligible to register for parking. However they may apply for an exception under certain circumstances.   

student lot assignments

Student parking registrations are valid for your primary lot assignment, as well as your student overflow lot, Lot 4. You may be directed to park in your overflow lot OR another lot on campus if athletics, a special event or construction affect your assigned lot. 

COMMUTER STUDENTS
Commuter students may register for parking based on lot availability and their class standing. Please note, overnight parking in commuter parking lots is prohibited for students with commuter registrations. Parking assignments are based on spaces available in the lot.
