Parking management button

Spring 2014 Student

All student parking registration for the spring semester must be completed in person at the DOTS Office.

Please keep in mind that spring parking lot selection is limited as many students choose to purchase parking on an annual basis.

Summer 2014 Student

Summer Parking Registration will open for all students at 10am on April 1, 2014. There will be a link in the Student Parking section of the DOTS website. If you have an annual or a spring-only parking registration, you DO NOT need to register for the summer; it is included in the cost of your current registration.

Summer parking registrations are valid from June 2 - August 29, 2014. Summer registrants are assigned to either Lot 4 (for commuters only) or Lot 6 (residential students only), but all summer registrants may park in any of the following lots: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 11, 15 and 16. Please note that special events may limit access to certain lots at times.

Lots 5 and 19 as well as all faculty/staff lots and paid parking areas will be enforced according to posted lot restrictions throughout the summer.

To Make Changes
*Before you begin you must have your license plate number and vehicle make and model to complete your registration.
