Follow These Tips for a Fast, Hassle-Free Process

  • Know your license plate and whether your state uses numbers 0 and 1, letters O and I, or both. For example, if your plate is M1ZZ0U and you register MIZZOU, our license-plate recognition software will flag your vehicle for a citation.
  • If you choose to pay with a credit or debit card, be sure to use the street address and email address your bank has on file for you as your billing address. Otherwise, your payment may be unsuccessful.
  • Do not register as a visitor. This will only delay your ability to request a permit.
  • Do not log into the Tiger Park Portal on multiple devices at once. Again, this will just slow the process down — for you and everyone else.
  • Please be patient with our parking staff when they answer your call. They work very hard to meet increased demand during peak parking permit registration.

Making fall parking registration easier for you
On May 7, you will receive an email telling you when you may purchase a fall parking permit. When your day comes, you can go to the Tiger Park Portal to purchase your permit.
We’ve put together a short list of dos and don’ts and some other tips to make the process faster and smoother.

Dos

  • Know your license plate and whether your state uses numbers 0 and 1, letters O and I, or both. For example, if your plate is M1ZZ0U and you register MIZZOU, our license-plate recognition software will flag your vehicle for a citation.
  • Bookmark this map of campus parking structures and lots. If you receive more than one parking option, you can quickly check which one is best for you.
  • Please be patient with our parking staff when they answer your call. They work very hard to meet increased demand during peak parking permit registration.

Don’ts

  • Do not register as a visitor. This will only delay your ability to request a permit.
  • Do not log into the Tiger Park Portal on multiple devices at once. Again, this will just slow the process down — for you and everyone else.

What to expect

  • If you’re a returning student living in an MU residence hall, or if you’re a graduate student or a professional student, you will receive priority parking in a core campus parking structure or lot.
  • If you’re a freshman or transfer student living in a residence hall, you will most likely be assigned to a perimeter parking lot.
  • If you’re living off campus in a private apartment, sorority or fraternity house, you will probably get a perimeter lot assignment — regardless of your proximity to campus. If you need overnight parking, you will be assigned to SG4, behind the Hearnes Center.
  • If you’re an off-campus student who works on campus early in the morning (shift ends by 9 a.m.) or late at night (after 6 p.m.), you may be eligible for an AM or PM limited-time parking permission to accommodate your work schedule. Just send an email with the subject line “AM/PM permit” to muparking@missouri.edu and let them know your name, your supervisor’s name, where you work and when. Once they verify your schedule, they will let you know your options.

About perimeter lots

  • If you’re assigned to a perimeter lot, you can take the Tiger Line shuttles to-and-from core campus.
  • Download the free GoMizzou app, choose map, then choose the Tiger Line icon in the bottom right-hand corner to see a real-time shuttle service map.
  • During fall and spring semesters, while classes are in session, the shuttles run:
    • SG4 – Hearnes: Monday–Friday, 5 a.m.–midnight; Saturday–Sunday, noon–midnight.
    • AV14 – Trowbridge: Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.- midnight; Saturday-Sunday, noon-midnight.
    • RP10 – Reactor Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-11 p.m.; no weekend shuttle service.
  • Want someone to walk with you to or from your car? Call MUPD at 573-882-7201. A dispatcher will send a campus safety officer (CSO) to walk you to your vehicle or a university-owned building.

Pay parking citations and fight hunger
Donations for Citations is a new program that will allow alternative payment for up to three parking citations each year. Beginning June 1, you may donate 10 full-size, non-perishable items in lieu of paying the actual citation dollar amount. Your donations will go to Tiger Pantry, Mizzou’s on-campus food pantry for MU students, staff and faculty who are experiencing food insecurity or hunger. Bring your items to the Parking & Transportation Office (Turner Avenue Parking Structure) within five days of receiving a citation. Be sure to check tigerpantry.missouri.edu for acceptable items.
Donation for Citations applies only to citations for no permission, permission does not apply, and expired meter (up to $25 per citation, with a maximum of three per year).
