Special Service Permits

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:

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, 2nd Floor Lobby).
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:
