Once you make your parking permit purchase electronically,  only the transaction will take place. You will have a receipt. You will receive your  hanging parking  placard with other check-in items when you arrive.

If you are a commuter student you can pick up your hanging placard the first week of school in the fall.

Placards can be purchased by credit card, debit card or electronic check. We do not take cash.



Residential Students

In order for you to purchase a parking placard  for the Fall of 2020 you must already have a housing assignment. For information about housing information for Fall of 2020, please visit the Office of Residential Life.

Commuter Students

Commuter students must demonstrate they live more than 1 mile from campus in order to qualify for a commuter permit.

Can I get a refund?

If you purchase an early parking permit and your circumstances change over the summer, you may get a full refund for your parking permit.

What happens if I lose my receipt for my parking permit purchase over the summer?

Your parking permit transaction will be in our Iparq system and your placard  will still be waiting for you when you check it in the fall.
