Sales are conducted online. Students must have a valid NetID to purchase a permit. Students need to verify their credit hours if they are having problems logging in before contacting Parking and Transportation Services.

Lots are sold first come, first served. If a parking lot is not listed, it is sold out.

Follow these steps to purchase a permit:

  • Determine if you will live on or off campus. On campus (resident) students should purchase a resident permit (R lots). Off campus (commuter) students should purchase a commuter permit (C lots). Commuter permits are not valid for overnight parking on campus.
  • Visit
  • Select Purchase a Permit.
  • Select Annual/Semesterly.
  • Enter your NetID and password.
  • Download a campus map from the website to determine which lot best meets your needs. Note the locations of resident and commuter lots.
  • Read the instructions carefully and purchase the permit. You may pay in full or by student bill.
  • Wait until the transaction is complete. Do not close or refresh your browser.
  • The fastest way to complete your transaction is to select Student Billing as your payment method. Check and credit card payments take longer and include an additional transaction fee.
