  • Faculty and staff parking permits are valid from July 1 through June 30 each year and go on sale in June.  
  • Permits purchased online are payroll deducted in equal installments throughout the year, so you won't pay the full price at one time.  To determine the amount that will be deducted from each paycheck, simply divide the total permit cost by the number of times you are paid each year.
  • When you register online, you will be able to print a receipt that is valid for 10 days and will serve as your temporary parking permit until your new decal or hangtag arrives in campus mail. If you are not eligible for payroll deduction or wish to pay for your permit in full at the time of purchase, you may come to the HOME office in 034 Campus Avenue Building beginning June 1.
