Rules and Regulations

PART 584 OF SUNY'S POLICIES & PROCEDURES: The Rules and Regulations pertaining to parking and traffic enforcement on the Stony Brook University Campus can be found in Part 584 of SUNY's Policies & Procedures.

PARKING PERMITS: If you park on campus, your vehicle must be registered and display a valid parking permit. Violators are obligated to pay all parking tickets incurred. The University only recognizes parking permits issued by Parking Services or official disabled parking permits. All other parking permits are invalid.

Obtain a Permit

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.

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

MULTIPLE VEHICLES: A Parking Permit owner may use their hang tag for multiple vehicles as long as the vehicle parked on campus is being used by the Permit owner, and all vehicles that may be used are added within the Parking Permit System. Please display the Permit on any vehicle, from the rearview mirror as noted above. 

IF YOU LOSE YOUR PERMIT: 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.

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