Parking Administration

After many years of using hang-tag parking permits, We will be going to re-positional permits!


Permits will need to be ordered on-line, and you may do so at the following web address:

Permit sales for the 2015-16 academic years begin on June 1, 2015.

These permits will be placed at the bottom left-hand side of the vehicle windshield.


Current (2014) annual permits are valid through July 31, 2015, so continue to properly display your hang-tag until August 1, 2015 – thank you!

Last but not least, as of June 1st, an Orange permit will be offered at a deep discount at $65 per year.

This permit will be good for lots 39, 51 and 52, which are located on the northwest perimeter of the campus.

There is a limited amount available, so please take advantage of this offer as soon as possible.
