Welcome to Parking Services

Thank you for your patience, as we worked through our website technical issues.  Student parking permits for the 2016-2017 academic year are NOW available online.

In an effort to help our students avoid citations, please remember we will begin full enforcement on the first day of class, Monday, 8/29.  If you are bringing a vehicle to campus, you must have a permit or opt to pay to park.
