Overflow Parking 2018

The additional Overflow Permits are now SOLD OUT.

If you did not secure one of the Overflow Permits, you may still purchase a regular Student Semester Permit.

Parking and Transportation Services introduced a new offsite Overflow Parking permit option for Fall Semester 2018. This parking option offers students an alternative to parking on campus during the normal peak times of parking congestion (Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.). Permits are sold at the discounted rate of $65, more than 50% off the normal student semester rate (on-campus restrictions apply, please see below). On-campus housing residents are not eligible for this option.

Overflow Lot opens: Monday, Aug. 27, 2018
Monday-Thursday only, on-campus parking restrictions apply, please see below

After Oct. 18, the offsite lot will close and all Overflow Parking permits will then function as normal Student Semester Permits. Permit holders will be able to park on campus seven days a week after this date in the areas designated for Student Permits.

Free shuttle services: 8 a.m-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday
