Resident Parking

Live on Campus? Park on Campus!


College Residents are defined as all individuals classified as students by the Registrar of the College, who reside in College administered housing (including the Ludwell apartments) and have completed 4 regular semesters (fall, spring).  Grad Plex residents qualify for a gold Grad Plex decal. In addition to the rules that apply to a yellow resident decal, this decal is also valid on the second and third level of the Parking Deck marked as Day Student Parking Only.

Resident students are encouraged to abstain from driving to class to help reduce parking congestion and to provide other residents across campus with availability of resident spaces.

Students with resident decals may park in resident only spaces at any time and in faculty/staff and day student spaces on the weekends and after 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, unless otherwise noted (see Parking Regulations for exceptions). Vehicles must be removed from faculty/staff and day student spaces by 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday. Resident students may only register one family vehicle.
