Save the Dates: Parking Permits Going on Sale for Summer 2018 and the 2018-19 Academic Year
Two Important Dates for Summer 2018 Parking Permits and Fall 2018/Academic Year 2018-19 Parking Permits:
Plan ahead and mark your calendar so you do not miss out on parking!
- Summer 2018 Parking Permits go on sale on May 2, 2018 at 9 a.m.
- Fall 2018/Academic Year 2018-19 Parking Permits go on sale on July 10, 2018.
Parking is limited on campus, and permits will sell out!
For Fall 2018 permits: If you wait until August to purchase your permit, you are unlikely to get a permit, especially as it gets closer to the start of classes. Please plan ahead, because they will sell out quickly. Also, keep in mind that if you plan to park for the entire 2018-19 academic year, you are strongly encouraged to purchase an academic year permit when they go on sale in July. By purchasing an academic year permit, you will secure parking for the entire 2018-19 academic year. Purchasing a fall-only permit will not guarantee that you will be able to get a spring-semester permit if you choose to wait. Parking is limited and few permits will be available for purchase for Spring 2019.
Visit the Parking Services website for more information about on campus parking. Information about Summer 2018 and Fall 2018/Academic Year 2018-19 is currently not posted; however, it will be updated on the University Parking Permits for Students webpage in the coming weeks. Please keep checking the website for updates.Contact: Christine Wilczynski-Vogel
