Parking permits are required 24 hours per day, seven days per week and are valid only in posted, designated parking lots for vehicles parked on Main Campus and the North Quad Dormitories Parking Lots. Vehicles parked in the Schoonover Park and Frederick Park housing areas (East Campus) are required to have East Campus parking permits. There are many different types of parking permit options for Main Campus, such as annual, academic term, semester, weekly and daily permits. Parking permits for Main Campus and North Quad can be purchased at the Campus Service Center in Building 47A. There is no grace period provided to purchase a parking permit.
The North Quad Dormitories parking permits are only valid in Parking Lots 300 and 301 only. Parking anywhere else on Main Campus requires the purchase of an additional permit.
East Campus parking permits can be obtained at the Alliance Property Management Office at 601 Thomas Court. Permits are only issued to vehicles registered to the residents of each unit. There is no charge for the East Campus parking permits. East Campus parking permits are not valid in the Main Campus or North Quad parking lots.
