Where to Park

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. Other rules concerning parking are specified by the    Stony Brook University Parking Rules and Regulations.

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