Commuter Permits Now Available to Sophomore Students

By lasu224 ยท July 14, 2020

Student commuter (C) permits will go on sale beginning noon Tuesday, July 14, for off campus students with a sophomore ranking. This is a new option for sophomore students, who haven't previously been able to purchase commuter permits. These permits are available on a first come, first served basis.

Students can purchase permits online by logging into their customer account using their linkblue username and password. Permits purchased online through July 22 will be mailed to your home mailing address. After that date, they must be picked up at the Transportation Services Customer Service Center, located at 721 Press Avenue.

Students may also purchase their permits in person at the Transportation Services Customer Service Center, located at 721 Press Avenue.

Please note that 2020-2021 permits are valid beginning August 1 and must be displayed when parking in designated areas. In addition, all outstanding parking citations must be paid before a permit purchase will be processed. Citations may be paid online.

In addition to commuter options in the Scott Street area (C9), a new commuter option (C5) has been added for the 2020 academic year in the new Cornerstone Garage (previously called South Limestone Garage).

There is no fee increase for commuter permits this year. Most commuter permits are designated in the intermediate tier and the cost is $320 for the academic year. Students seeking less expensive options may also consider periphery or remote permits.

Students who choose to purchase a commuter permit are required to park within their designated area. For more details, please visit this page.
