Permits are NOT required for the Winter 2022 term.  Therefore permits will NOT be sold online or in-person.  The decision regarding the Spring 2022 term parking permits will be made by March 1st.


For other terms, all vehicles must display a permit. Permits are not required on weekends, holidays or during the first week of the term.  Permits are available approximately 45 days prior to the start of the term and online sales end at 8:59 pm on the first day of the term.  After that, permits are available at the Student Account Services office located at one of the four main campuses.

How to buy a permit online

  2. Update your info

    Update your mailing address, vehicle info, license plate number, and permit type. Permits are charged to your student account. If you have sufficient funds and authorized deduction of charges, you can pay with financial aid.

    Permit types and prices
    Type of permit Online price
    Term permit – all day $50
    Term permit – evening only (4-10pm) $40
  3. Check the mail

    We start mailing out permits about one week before the start of the term. If you order closer to the start of the term, it usually takes a day or so to process and mail out the permit.

    • Worried about getting your permit in time? Parking is free the first week of the term, so relax! As long as you ordered your permit by the start of the term, you should be fine.

Buying permits in person

After the start of the term, you can buy permits in person at Student Account Services. But be warned: lines can be long and you will not be entered in the drawing for a free parking permit. Have your picture ID and license plate information with you when you come in.
