Displaying Your Permit: The Student Day Permit sticker must be displayed weekdays between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. while parked in the Library Parking Lot. Peel off the clear facing of the sticker by bending it at the slit and affix the sticker to the inside, lower front windshield of the driver's side. The permit sticker must be completely affixed to be valid. Failure to properly display will result in a $20 citation. The parking permit is transferable between vehicles registered with the university to your name.

Using Your Permit: Student Day Permit holders must enter the Library Parking lot via the student, right-hand entry lane but may use either exit lane. If parking lot is full or closed, access may be denied. Charges accrue at any time Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m. Outside those hours parking is free in the Library Parking Lot.

Rate and Payment Options: During cashiered hours, the first half hour is free to Student Day parking permit holders. The second half hour costs $0.35. Each additional hour accrues at the rate of $0.75/hour. There are two options for entering/exiting and making payment:

Take a ticket from the dispenser at the entry gate and pay cash or debit/credit at the exit gate.

Use a parking access card for entry and exit and record parking charges to your U-Bill and make payment to U-Bill. Please visit one of our offices if you’d like to receive and use the parking access card.
