Volunteer Parking Instructions

A volunteer is an individual whose primary relationship with the university is to perform a service in support of a university program or activity with no promise, expectation, or receipt of compensation for services rendered to the university, auxiliaries, or third-party vendors.

  2. Please allow an additional two days from the date of the ID being assigned by HRSS for it to become active in the parking system. Then, complete the Volunteer Parking Request Form [PDF]. The ASM or department approver and volunteer must both provide signatures.
