Resident Student Parking Application Process:
Seniors and juniors register for a parking permit prior to the beginning of the school year. Due to limited parking spaces, it is imperative that all applications for parking permits be completed promptly.
Freshmen and sophomores are not allowed to have vehicles on campus.
Parking Application Process:
The Office of Safety & Security will start accepting online applications on April 25th. There are a limited number of parking spaces available and we unfortunately CANNOT GUARANTEE every applicant a parking space.
*PLEASE NOTE: You may only apply for a PC parking permit by way of an on-campus computer in one of the computer labs. (Koffler, Accinno, Albertus Magnus, or in the Library) All mandatory fields must be completed so that the application process can successfully proceed. Print and retain the voucher (final page in application process) for your records.
IMPORTANT: Returning students are to update their mailing address. Permits will be mailed to your address in August, prior to the start of the academic school year
Permit order displaying a dorm and/or room number for a mailing address will not be delivered by the Post Office.
Any senior or junior who does not need to have a vehicle on campus during the fall semester, but will need a vehicle for an internship during the spring semester or going abroad, needs to apply.
Your sticker is non-transferable. If you are planning to go abroad in the fall and will be returning in the spring, your sticker will be waiting for you.
For students who live off-campus or commute to class, you must live more than 1/2 a mile away from campus to qualify for a parking sticker. If you meet this requirement you must apply online*.
Permits can only be purchased through the below link and will be mailed to you.
Price for Parking Pass:
Once a sticker is obtained, it must be placed in the driver’s side of the windshield. The sticker is not to be removed or transferred. If a student returns to the campus with a different vehicle or new windshield, the old sticker must be removed in order to receive a new sticker.
All P/T Faculty, Grad Students, Grad Assistants, or School of Continuing Education Students are required to have a permit. (Will be on line application by the summer)
