Parking on campus is kind of free—it's included in a mandatory Transportation Access Fee. So everyone is required to pay for parking in some way, but it's really only beneficial for those who have cars. So you don't have to pay for a permit because you already are paying with tuition!

Students can park in blue permit and green permit lots. Their permit stickers should be affixed on the outside of the driver's side of the back windshield, and the permit cannot be altered in any way. Students should make sure that the permit is visible at all times while the vehicle is parked on campus. If a permit is not properly displayed and a student gets caught, he or she can pay a fine of $25.
