Graduate / School of Continuing Education (SCE) / Adjunct Parking
All Graduate and SCE students, as well as Adjunct Faculty and Special Lecturers, are eligible to park on campus at no cost, but only after applying for and receiving a parking sticker. These stickers will be valid for the academic school year.
Parking and operating a motor vehicle, on the Providence College campus, is a privilege, not a right, and constitutes acceptance by the individual of the responsibility to ensure that his or her vehicle is neither parked nor operated in violation of any of the College regulations.
A parking permit allows a student to park on campus, but does not guarantee a parking space.
All Graduate and SCE students, as well as Adjunct Faculty and Special Lecturers, are able to register on line on August 15, 2015, for the new academic year 2015 - 2016.
Passes may be picked up from the Office of Safety and Security, which is open 24 hours a day.
The application can be done from any computer and no longer requires the use of an on-campus computer. We do NOT charge for a permit.
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: Permits can only be obtained through the below link and will be issued by the Office of Safety and Security.
Stickers must be placed on the lower part of the driver’s side windshield. The sticker is not to be removed or transferred. A replacement sticker may be obtained for a newly purchased vehicle or a replacement windshield at the Office of Safety and Security.

“Booting” / Towing
All illegally parked vehicles are subject to be “Booted” or towed. Providence College is not responsible for damage to a vehicle during towing and storage. Vehicles parked on campus or on College owned property may be “Booted” or towed at the owner’s expense when:
- Vehicle is blocking the flow of traffic, causing a hazard.

- Vehicle is in violation of RI motor laws.

Due to inclement weather, students and faculty/staff are advised to call the weather line at 865-1012 for information regarding school closings and class cancellations. In the event of a snow emergency, vehicles need to be moved and students and faculty/staff must listen to the snow line instructions in order to know when plowing will be conducted in each parking lot.
