Student Commuter Permit Sales Start Noon Wednesday

By lasu224 ยท June 23, 2020

Student commuter (C) permits will go on sale at noon on Wednesday, June 24, for returning students (those who previously had a commuter permit). This priority pre-sale window is available until noon Monday, July 6, 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 prior to 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.

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.

Beginning at noon on Wednesday, July 8, all remaining student commuter permits will be offered for sale to the broader student commuter population with 60 or more credit hours.

In addition to commuter options in the Scott Street area (C9), a new commuter option (C5) will be 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 about commuter permits, please visit this page.

Permit renewal time also offers students a good opportunity to consider other methods of transportation to, from and around campus, rather than single occupancy vehicles. Transportation Services offers a number of attractive incentives to encourage students to consider sustainable options, such as biking, busing, walking or ride sharing. For details about these incentives, visit the Incentives section of our website.
