What else should I know?

Vehicle Registration Required: All customers must have a vehicle registered on their account in order to purchase a parking product. To add a vehicle to your account, you must provide a copy of your vehicle registration or other documentation to validate the license plate, make, year, and model of the vehicle. In lieu of the vehicle registration, a photo of the license plate will be accepted.

Short term Swing permits are available for purchase. If you work fewer than 5 days a week, and you know your schedule in advance, a Short term permit will allow you to pay for only the days you park. If you need to park outside of Swing Shift Permit hours from time to time, you can additionally purchase Individual Commuter Tickets (ICTs). During special events such as football or basketball games, you may be required to park in a different area than the lot assigned to your permit.


You may return your permit to Commuter Services at any time for a refund of future days paid. If you elected payroll deductions as your payment type and wish to stop deductions, you MUST return the permit to Commuter Services and sign a stop-deduction form. The registered permit holder remains responsible for the payment of the permit fee until the permit is physically returned to Commuter Services or expires.

Proper display:

Hang on rearview mirror or display on the driver’s side dash fully visible from the exterior of the vehicle, with the area designator facing the windshield.
