Commuter Permits are SOLD OUT

Why limit permit sales?

Commuter parking permit sales were limited so permit holders could find parking spaces on campus.  This change was needed when we lost 500 parking spaces to construction.  Log into your Parking Account to add your name to the Commuter waitlist. 

What are my options?

  • After 4:30 pm, the SC permit is honored in any zone except for Non-Premium Housing and Premium Housing.

Alumni Square Garage Commuter (AC) Parking Permit - PRORATED $93
