Housing Parking

Students living in any of the residence halls on campus are eligible to purchase a Housing Permit, a South Campus Permit, or an Alumni Square Garage Permit.

Housing Permit - $90 Year

(Monday - Friday)

The Housing Permit allows parking in any of the designated Housing or "All Permit"  lots on main campus. See the 2013-2014 Housing Parking Map.

Housing Permits are recommended for residents who need frequent access to their vehicles.

Please note, competition for parking near residence halls is very high.  Parking is not guaranteed in any location.

The South Campus Permit is also available to Housing students. It allows parking in the Campbell Lane Lot or the South Campus Lot.  In addition, this permit is honored in the Commuter lots (except PS2) and "All Permit" lots after 2:00 PM weekdays, and in the Gated Regents, Gated Hilltop, and Mimosa lots after 4:30 PM.

FREE Topper Transit service is available to and from the Campbell Lane Lot and the South Campus Lot Monday - Friday, 7:20 AM - 9:30 PM.
