BCTC Commuter (C10) Permits

C10 PermitsTransportation Services offers a limited number of BCTC student commuter (C10) parking permits within reasonable proximity to desirable campus destinations. C10 permits provide off-campus student commuters with the highest level of convenience and predictability at a higher price point than periphery parking. The number of permits issued for designated commuter parking areas is monitoried closely to ensure that permit holders will generally be able to find parking within their assigned lot, garage or area. Commuter parking is ideal for students who desire more convenient access to campus than periphery parking can offer.


C10 permits are restricted to students who live outside a one-mile radius of campus. Students renewing an existing commuter permit also have priority of purchase during a designated pre-sale window.


2018-2019 Annual Price (based on academic year of nine months): $320

Student commuter (C10) permits are generally only available to purchase for the entire academic year and are valid from August 19, 2019 through May 3, 2020. Students who no longer need or desire commuter parking during any portion of the year may choose to return their permit to Transportation Services and will be given a pro-rated refund of any unused portion.

Parking Privileges and Control Hours

In addition to authorizing parking in the designated commuter parking areas, a commuter permit also authorizes the permit holder to park in student periphery parking areas (K). Commuter permits are also authorized for use in most employee intermediate parking areas after 3:30 p.m. and in most employee core areas after 5 p.m. Signage at the entry to parking areas and any additional control signage, curb markings and other parking control devices within these areas take precedence over maps and general campus information.

Student commuter parking areas are generally enforced for permits under the following schedule:
Student commuter (C10) permit: Monday through Friday: 5 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Any valid permit: Monday through Thursday: 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
No permit required (except in the S. Limestone Garage):  Monday through Thursday: 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m.; Friday after 3:30 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday
