Commuter Parking

Day Commuters

Students who do not reside in College administered housing will receive a Commuter (Day) decal upon registering a motor vehicle.

Students with day decals may park in areas marked as day student and permit only. They may also park in resident and faculty/staff spaces on the weekend and in other areas at times as noted in the Rules and Regulations. Students must move their vehicles from faculty/staff and resident spaces by 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Evening Commuters

Students whose classes begin after or have no need to park on campus before 4:00 p.m. and who do not reside in College administered housing qualify for the Evening decal. After 4:00 p.m., they may park in any faculty/staff, resident, day student or permit only space unless posted as faculty/staff at all times.

Evening students who have a frequent need to park on campus before 4:00 p.m. may purchase the Day decal, as no provision is made for the Evening designation prior to 4:00 p.m. Evening students who have an occasional need to park on campus before 4:00 p.m. must obtain a temporary Day pass, which allows parking in Day and "Permit Only" areas.

Both day and evening students may register multiple family owned vehicles under a single hangtag.
