Update: Parking Permits for 2021/2022 are now available. 



Use of Parking Permits - What to Know

THE FINE PRINT: Users of a University-issued parking permit acknowledge responsibility to operate and park a vehicle on campus in accordance with Stony Brook University's Parking Rules and Regulations. At all times, the University retains ownership of any issued parking permit, and ownership is NOT transferable. Parking permits not in use must be returned to the University.

RENEWING YOUR PERMIT: Parking permits are not renewed automatically. You must renew online using the Stony Brook Parking Permit System.

HOW TO DISPLAY YOUR PERMIT: When parking on campus, users must display the permit by hanging it from the rear-view mirror support, facing outwards. The parking permit is not to be defaced or altered in any manner.

TRANSFERRING YOUR PERMIT: A parking permit may be transferred to any vehicle being used by the original permit owner. 

IF YOU LOSE YOUR PEMIT: Report lost or stolen permits immediately. There is a small replacement fee for lost, stolen, or discarded permits. Resale or unauthorized use of your issued parking permit is prohibited. Possession or use of a lost or stolen permit may result in criminal prosecution.
