Graduate Student Parking

Graduate student parking for the fall semester will go on sale Tuesday, July 26th at 7:30 am for lots 5 and 34.  Keep in mind that even though it prompts you to choose a specific lot when signing up for parking, you are not guaranteed to be able to park in that lot.  Both lots will be available on a first-come,first-served basis daily with your permit stating you will have access to both lots.

Parking decals will no longer be sent to your mailing address, even though the option is still available when you resgister.  Students can have them mailed to their department on campus, or choose to pick them up in the Registrar’s Office once they become available.  If you choose to pick the decals up, there will be an email sent in August letting you know when the parking decals are ready to be picked up.

Please note that parking registration will only be available online and will not be available in the Registrar’s Office.

In Banweb under the Personal Information tab, choose Self Serve Parking.  In order to register for parking, you must have your vehicle registered with the University.  You may add, delete, or update your vehicle information at any time.

The lot registration button will not appear on the Vehicle Registration page until Tuesday morning when parking goes on sale.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Registrar’s Office at 487-2319.
