Graduate/Professional Student Permit

All students are welcome to purchase a permit to park on campus. Graduate and professional student permits receive higher priority than undergraduate student permits and locations vary depending on availability and the program in which the student is enrolled.

Note: Per federal regulations, the university is not permitted to discuss student records, including billing, with parents/guardians without the student’s consent. These regulations apply regardless of the student’s age. Students may choose how to grant others access to information.

Professional Student Permits

Professional students in Law; Medicine; Nursing; Occupational Therapy; Pharmacy; Physical Therapy; and Veterinary Medicine have a separate process for purchasing permits through their program coordinator.

    Locations available are specific to each program, near the building(s) students will need to access most often.

    Graduate Student Permits

    Permits are purchased per academic year and paid in semester increments (billed in August for fall; December for spring) with an option to cancel between semesters. Permits will auto-renew between semesters unless cancelled; see the “Purchasing a permit” section for information on permits currently available.
