Parking Reminders

From the University Transportation and Parking Department

  • South P Lot is now a designated commuter student parking lot only, and will be strictly enforced as such.  A Commuter Student hangtag will need to be displayed.
  • The Office of Parking Services is activating an annual renewal requirement.
  • Resident and Commuter student registration began on August 20. Faculty and Staff renewal will begin in December.
  • Hang tags must be clearly displayed for all designated parking areas.
  • If a hang tag is not displayed or does not match the designated area in which the vehicle is parked, a citation will be issued.
  • Parking permits are not transferable; each tag is numbered for easy identification, and can only be used by the permit owner.
