2015-16 Parking Permit Registration

An integral part of our efforts to provide a safe environment is having good information on who is parking on our campus. To do so, we utilize free parking permits for all faculty, staff and students.

However, the system only works if we, as members of the campus community, do our part in registering our vehicles and displaying current parking permits. Therefore, please help the Campus Safety Team as we work together to enhance safety for all by registering or confirming existing registration information for your vehicles in our parking permit system for the upcoming 2015-16 academic year.

The new parking permits for 2015-16 are now available. Read instructions for all faculty, students and staff to register their vehicles online.

Please note that on Wednesday, July 1, 2015, all vehicles must display a 2015-16 parking permit.

Thank you for your help in promoting safety!

Jim Benford
Director of Campus Safety
