Remote Parking (X Permits)

This parking option is limited to students with housing assignments in Greg Page and Shawneetown in addition to 200 on-campus residential students with housing assignments for all other residential facilities. In addition to accommodating parking needs for the residents of south campus graduate and family housing areas, remote parking may be an ideal option for other on-campus residents who infrequently utilize their automobile or who are seeking a cheaper campus parking alternative. Remote parking is served by the Green Route connector shuttle, which provides access to campus via a bus transfer to the Blue and White routes.

ADA Accessible Parking

ADA accessible permits are valid in any legal parking space in any E, C, K and EK lot not otherwise restricted by special signs or curb paint. ADA accessible permits are not valid in reserved lots, service areas or on blue, yellow and red-painted curbs. Note: ADA accessible permits are not authorized to park R or Core Lots unless parking in a designated ADA accessible space.

Motorcycle/Motor Scooter Parking

If you drive a motorcycle/motor scooter to campus, you must obtain and display a motorcycle/motor scooter permit. Motorcycle/motor scooter parking is limited to spaces with green lines or "motorcycle only" parking signs. For a map of motorcycle/motor scooter spaces, please go to the parking maps page.

Temporary Parking Permits

Temporary parking permits are available for purchase at Transportation Services, located in the Press Avenue Garage (721 Press Avenue). The cost is $9.50 per week.
