You will need a parking permit to park in any campus lots.  When you arrive at the Visitors Center, you may enter the drive-thru area and speak with a representative to receive a parking permit.  Or, you can request one when you check in at the front desk.

Parking permits will also be distributed at most campus tours and special events.  Be sure to see an Admissions staff member to ensure you receive a parking permit.

Parking permits are valid only for the date of your campus visit or event, and must be clearly displayed in the dashboard of your vehicle.  Please park only in spots marked as "Visitor" or "Commuter" spots; signage is available in all campus parking lots directing you to visitor spots.

For more information on parking on campus, contact Parking and Transportation Services at (850) 473-7711.
