Student Remote Permits

Transportation Services began offering a steeply discounted remote parking option during 2020-2021, which took advantage of excess parking availability in the south campus Greg Page and Shawneetown graduate and family housing areas. This remote 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 residents of south campus graduate and family housing areas, remote parking may be an ideal option for other on-campus residents who infrequently use their automobile or who are seeking a less expensive campus parking alternative. Remote parking is served by the Green Route, which provides access to campus via a bus transfer to the Blue and White routes at the Stadium Blue Lot bus shelter. 


Remote permits are restricted to students with a confirmed on-campus housing assignment. Students with confirmed housing assignments for Greg Page and Shawneetown are eligible to purchase a remote (R19) permit. Students with confirmed housing assignments for all other campus housing areas are eligible to purchase a remote (X) permit.


2023-2024 annual price (based on academic year eight months): $168

Student remote permits are only available to purchase for the entire academic year. Students who no longer need or desire remote 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 Locations

R19 remote permits authorize permit holders to park in any of the Greg Page and Shawneetown parking areas, specifically excluding the Commonwealth Drive Lot, located off Alumni Drive just north of the entry to Greg Page on Commonwealth Drive. Those with X remote permits are also authorized to park in the Greg Page and Shawneetown parking areas, also excluding the Commonwealth Drive Lot

Parking Privileges and Control Hours

In addition to authorizing parking in designated remote parking areas, a remote permit also authorizes the permit holder to park 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 remote parking areas are controlled for permits 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Purchase Process and Calendar:

Students with a Greg Page or Shawneetown housing assignment will be allotted a student remote (R19) parking permit upon application. An additional 200 student remote (X) permits will be available for students with other on-campus housing assignments on a first come, first served basis until sold out.

Sale of remote permits will take place on the following schedule. Please note that these dates are subject to change.
