Guest Parking

Campus guests should park in the hourly paid lots on campus.

Students - for guest passes, visit the Office of Student Accounts in Benedum.

Displaying Permits 

Permits must be clearly displayed from your rear-view mirror facing forward. Failure to do so may result in a citation.

If you drive a different car or a rental car, do not forget to transfer your permit to the new car. If you arrive on campus and realize you do not have your permit, it is recommend that park and pay in the Hourly Short-Term lot to avoid receiving a citation.

Lost Permits 

If you lose your permit, stop by Office of Student Accounts, One-Stop Shop room 110 in the Benedum Building to get a new one. Your old permit will be deactivated in the system.


There will be no ticketing during the first week of each semester and during class breaks.
