Virtual parking permits expire August 15th each year except payroll deduction permits. Whether you are a student, faculty, or staff, everyone needs a permit to park on campus. If you are in need of a permit, please go to the permit section on this site and register for yours now. Remember, you must register your vehicle's license plate information and associate it with your virtual permit. Motorcycles and scooters are not eligible for virtual parking permits.

Enforcement

Due to the size of campus, parking is limited to certain areas for students, employees, and visitors. Campus parking is enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Signage is posted at the entrance of all campus lots. Pay attention to signage when parking your vehicle on campus.

Gated Lots

Some campus lots are gated and only accessible with approved gate access cards or remote clickers. Gate times are posted at the entrance by each gate stand. Employee spaces are open to students after 4:30PM each day, although some lots remain closed after this time. Pay attention to signage when parking your vehicle on campus.

Parking Garages

  • Overnight parking will be permitted on the top floor of all* parking garages. (*top two floors of the Traditions Garage and all floors of the W. Pensacola Street Garage)
  • All parking spaces require nose-in parking (unless a valid Back-In Permit is displayed). Vehicles backed into a space will receive a citation.
