Parking Permits

If you park on campus, your vehicle must be registered and display a valid parking permit. You should not park on campus until you have a valid parking permit properly displayed on your vehicle. Violators are obligated to pay all parking tickets incurred and should not assume a favorable decision. The University only recognizes parking permits issued by Parking Services or official disabled parking permits. All other parking permits are invalid. Other rules concerning parking are specified by the  Stony Brook University Parking Rules and Regulations.

Regarding motorcycles: You must register your motorcycle before parking on campus, however, a permit will not be required.

Your vehicle will be ticketed, immobilized and/or towed, if you park in spaces that were not intended for general parking.

Special Service permits are intended for personal vehicles that carry occupants who need to access buildings to accomplish building-related tasks.

Some examples of building-related tasks are:

  • Service vehicles (maintenance, construction, telecom, food service, building managers).
  • Emergency response vehicles (Fire marshalls, Police, emergency repair).
  • Employees who need access to loading docks   daily  in multiple buildings for stays longer than 15 minutes.

There are two types of Special Permits:

Short-Term:
If you meet the above criteria and require special service parking for   30 days or less, you can receive a Parking Services-issued temporary permit through the contracting department or directly from Student Accounts/Parking Services windows (Administration Building, 2 nd  Floor Lobby).
Long-Term:
If you would like to apply for a long-term Special Service Permit, please fill-out the   Special Service Permit Application. Please be clear on the justification for the permit.
Note:  Long-Term Special Service permits will not automatically renew. You must submit a new application.

Special Service Permit holders are authorized to park only in specifically marked Special Service parking spaces. A summary of these Special Service parking spaces is as follows:
