Off-Campus Students

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Parking Permits

2017-2018 NOW OPEN

Off- campus students may now start to apply for a parking AFTER HOURS permit/sticker.  A sticker/permit must be affixed to your vehicle before you will be allowed to park on campus during the authorized parking hours. 

Students will only be allowed to enter the campus through the Huxley Avenue Entrance and River Avenue Entrance (if opened). 

During the below times, students will park their cars behind the Library and Ruane Center. Students will also be granted card swipe privileges to the Wardlaw Parking Lot. 

Monday - Friday: From 4:30 pm until 2:00 am

Saturday - Sunday: From 4:30 pm until 2:00 am

No parking allowed on campus if a city-wide parking ban is in effect. No overnight parking allowed.

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.

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 will be mailed to your Friar mailbo​x once application is complete.

Permits can only be obtained through the below link.


Stickers must be placed on the lower left 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.
