WHERE TO PARK - COMMUTER STUDENTS

 

Where to Park on Campus with a Commuter Permit

 

COMMUTER PARKING LOTS: Two permit options are available to Commuter Students, and dictate where students can park. Commuter parking lots are enforced Monday-Friday from 7am-4pm. Outside of those hours, these lots are available for use without penalty. 

Commuter Standard Permit (Free): Vehicles with a Commuter Standard Permit must park in Lot 40. Students can utilize one of the many methods of transportation to get around campus including:

SBU Transit: Several routes to the heart of SBU's Main Campus leave from Lot 40 every 8-10 minutes during peak times of the academic year. New this Fall, look out for an East Campus Express Shuttle which will leave from Lot 40 and stop at South Campus then the Life Sciences tunnel, creating easier access to the Health Sciences Center (HSC).
You can always track the buses on our Live Tracker or by downloading the app; or
view the Shuttle Schedule/Map.

Bike Share: The Wolf Ride Bike Share program will be maintaining a bike station presence at Lot 40 again this year (approximately a 1.5 mile ride to the heart of campus); bikes are free for students, if returned within 60 minutes to another docking station on campus.

Commuter Premium Permit ($112.50/semester): Vehicles with a Commuter Premium Permit may park in designated spaces within Lots 2, 3, 5 and 6.
