The University has implemented a license plate recognition (LPR) system and switched all campuses to a virtual permit parking system. Physical permits will no longer be issued. License plates will be used to verify that a car can park on campus. Faculty and staff are allowed to have two vehicles assigned to their virtual permit. Students are allowed to have one vehicle assigned to their virtual permit.
For a list of parking citations and fines, please visit the Citations page.
