Only active GVSU faculty and staff can receive Faculty/Staff parking permits. Parking permits are only issued to Adjunct Faculty with an active appointment. See Section 2.5 of the Parking Ordinance.

Inviting Guests to Campus?

Faculty/Staff can request temporary one-day permits free of charge for up to 9 guests. Your guest(s) cannot be associated with GVSU in any capacity other than as a guest. This means you cannot request permits for yourself, other faculty or staff, or registered students. Submitting this request is not a guarantee for parking on GVSU properties in specific lots or at specific times. Closures, detours, maintenance, and other events, both university and non-university related, may restrict access to areas normally designated for parking without advance notice. Guests are required to follow the GVSU Traffic & Parking Ordinance and any or all applicable local and state laws while driving and parking any vehicle on campus.
