Changes coming to student parking permits – what you need to know

Beginning next semester (Fall 2019), the student parking permits for some parking lots will be reserved for students who live in a residential hall.

The residential areas and lots include:

  • Residential Commons 1: Students who live in Res Commons 1 will have priority for Lot H permits.
  • Residential Commons 2: Students who live in Res Commons 2 will have priority for Lot S permits.
  • University Commons: Students who live in University Commons will have priority for Lot N permits.
  • Miner Village: Students who live in Miner Village will have priority for Lot K permits.
  • Thomas Jefferson Hall: Students who live in T.J. will have priority for Lot T permits.

If you request a student permit for a residential lot and you do not live in the associated hall, your request will be given lower priority than residents.  However, you may request permits for up to 6 lots to increase your chances to secure a parking space.

“The parking committee sought input from several constituent groups and received support for this new policy,” says Doug Roberts, chief of University Police. “The overwhelming response was that this is in the best interest of our students and their safety while living on campus. I thank everyone who provided feedback.”

Permit requests are given priority based on the number of credit hours. Individuals who are renewing a permit are given higher priority over new requests. You can request a permit for the next semester at any time at
