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?

South Campus (SC) Parking Permit - $50

  • The SC permit is honored in the South Campus and Campbell Lane park and ride lots any time. These lots are served by Topper Transit White Line buses until 6PM, and Green Line buses until 10PM weekdays.
  • After 2:00 pm, the SC permit is honored in Commuter lots on main campus (except for PS2).
  • 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 - $160 

  • The “AC” permit provides guaranteed parking in the Alumni Square Garage from 6 AM until 6 PM Monday-Friday and parking in AP zones at any time.  This includes lots that become “AP” zones in the evening.
