Welcome to Parking Services

Winter Semester Parking Permits Are On Sale Now!


The end of the semester is quickly approaching and so are your exams! To accommodate the libraries' EXAM CRAM hours and other extended hours on campus, we have opened up Lot H and the Seward Ramp for parking during overnight hours.

What does that mean?

If you are on campus between 3:00 am and 6:00 am, you must park in Lot H on the Allendale Campus or the Seward Ramp on the Robert C. Pew Campus. Parking in any other lot during those times, including the Kirkhof meters and the DeVos Lot, may result in a citation for overnight parking. A friendly reminder that permits are required Monday-Thursday 7:00 am - 6:30 pm, and Friday 7:00 am - 5:00 pm in Commuter and Faculty/Staff areas, so make sure your car is relocated to where your permit allows by 7:00 am.

If you would like a SafeWalk from your vehicle to the library between 6:00 pm and 2:00 am, call GVPD Dispatch at (616) 331-3255.

Permits are available to guests at no cost at the following locations: Allendale Campus - Public Safety (Service Building - just south of the Alumni House) and Robert C. Pew Campus - Pew Security (102 Eberhard Center). Temporary permits for students will cost $6.00 per day. Students are eligible for up to twenty daily permits per semester.

Permits are required in Faculty/Staff lots and designated spaces year-round.
