The 2020-21 permit year is under way

Jul 17, 2020

The 2020-21 permit year begins Saturday, Aug. 1. If you plan to park on campus on or after Aug. 1, please order a 2020-21 annual permit, or a monthly or daily permit, online by clicking "Login" at the top right-hand corner of this page, then clicking "Compare Permits/Buy a Permit." Hourly parking options are also available via the ParkMobile app. 

All 2019-20 permits expire after July 31 and do not auto-renew. 

Parking options

We understand these are challenging and uncertain times, and we recognize that you may not know how often you’ll be on campus yet. Our permits are prorated and can be purchased at any point in the year. Just remember to purchase a permit prior to returning to campus or to use one of our hourly parking alternatives.

Access keycards

Beginning with the 2020-21 permit year, current access keycards will carry over to the next permit year. If you currently hold a 2019-20 annual permit, no need to wait for a new keycard in the mail. If you order a 2020-21 permit, simply continue using your existing keycard starting Aug. 1. If you do not hold a current, 2019-20 annual permit but are ordering a 2020-21 annual permit, you will receive a keycard by mail to use beginning Aug. 1.

If you forget your keycard for garage or event parking, we’ve got you covered! Approximately several business days after you order, your keycard’s QR code will be available 24/7 via your online profile.

License plates

Validation of active permit status will continue to be accomplished via license plate readers. You may manage or update your license plates at any time via your online account. 

Finally, please park with your license plate visible from the drive lane beginning Aug. 1 so we can ensure the parking you paid for is used only by other customers who have a valid permit or hourly parking. Click here for more information.
