Commuter Permits must be picked up in the Parking Office. If you are living in a Residence Hall and register your vehicle by August 8, 2018, your permit will be at your Residence Hall on Move-In Day. If you do not register by August 8, 2018, you will need to pick up your permit in the Parking Office.
You will receive the Campus Parking Map & Vehicle Parking Regulations when you receive your permit. We also have an interactive parking map available online that includes Big E Transport schedules and routes.
