New Parking Permit Improvements
Starting with Fall Quarter 2014, parking permits will be purchased online with a system that automatically mails parking permits to students. The new system will be operational beginning August 1, 2014. All parking permits will now be purchased online; no more standing in line at the Cashier’s Office. With the new system, parking permits will no longer be sold over the counter at the Cashier’s Office.
Using our new online system, students will be able to purchase their quarterly parking permit and print a receipt that would temporarily allow them to park on campus until the parking permit is mailed to the address designated when the permit is ordered. The system is easy to use; and there will be full instructions on the website to guide students.
Another improvement will be the parking permit itself. The campus is moving away from a hang tag and will be using a window decal that will be placed on the inside of the rear window in the driver’s side corner. These decals have been created for easy removal and can be repositioned if needed. Again, the new decals will be delivered by mail only to students.
Service Permits and Other Stickers
Some employees may receive a sticker, such as a service sticker or rideshare sticker, that must be affixed to the new permit. Please follow the instructions below for installing your sticker on the new permit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I have dark tinted windows, where should I place my new repositionable parking decal?
Answer: If you place the decal on the inside, lower corner of your rear window (the preferred position) and you can’t see it AT ALL, then move it to the inside lower corner of the front windshield on the driver’s side. However, if you can see the decal even faintly, please leave it on the rear window. Our parking team will be able to spot it there.
Question: I prefer to remove my parking permit every day. Will the permit continue to stick to the window of my car?
Answer: Yes, the new repositionable parking permit is designed to withstand multiple removals, so it should last you all quarter.
Question: I sometimes bring different cars to campus. Can the permit be taken off one vehicle and placed on another?
Answer: Yes, the permit can be removed without damage to your window, window tint or defroster and it can be placed on another vehicle.
Question: What if I get a parking ticket because my new repositionable parking permit was not visible to the parking officer?
Answer: Bring your citation to the Parking and Transportation Services Office located in building 109 (at the far end of the parking structure in the Police building) and we will evaluate the situation.
