PARKING FOR STUDENTS WHO REMAIN ON CAMPUS OVER WINTER/CHRISTMAS BREAK: Any student permit may park in any student parking lot beginning Friday, December 15, 2017 at 5:00 pm until Monday, January 15, 2018 at 5:00 pm. At that time, assigned permit parking will resume.

STUDENTS GRADUATING/TRANSFERING IN DECEMBER: Parking permits may be returned no later than Thursday, December 21, 2017 for a partial refund. Permits returned after this date will not be credited.

STUDENTS TRADING VEHICLES OVER THE BREAK: The original permit must be removed and returned to Parking Services to receive a preplacement permit at no charge. Failure to return the original permit will result in the appropriate semester permit fee for a replacement permit.

PREFERRED PERMIT HOLDERS WHO HAVE MOVED OFF CAMPUS OR TRANSFERRED RESIDENCE HALL: Students who have preferred parking and have moved off campus or transferred to a different Residence hall may bring in their permit and update it to their new preferred permit type. Residence students who have perimeter parking and have transferred residence halls will keep their current permit type; however, if the student has moved off campus they should bring their resident perimeter permit in to trade for a commuter perimeter.

PARKING LOT SURVEYS will be conducted beginning the week of January 22, 2018. Should additional preferred parking permits be available for issue, students on the waiting list for the available lots will be contacted by University email. If a student was placed on the waiting list in the Fall semester they still remain on the waiting list for the spring semester and need not apply again. Students wishing to be added to a waiting list should email Parking Services at with the following information:

Name and S0#
Number of Completed hours
Perimeter Permit Number
Email Address
Waiting being requested (Only one may be chosen)
Upgrades to parking permits from the waiting list are issued by seniority.
