Graduate students may obtain a commuter student parking permit free of charge. In order to obtain the permit, students need to register their vehicles at the Department of Safety Office located in the Greenbriar Building (#24 on the campus parking map), open between 8:00AM-3:00PM. Students should be sure to inform the Department of Safety staff that they are graduate students. Once the paperwork is complete, they will be issued a commuter parking permit and be able to park in the Starry Field Parking Lot, designated in yellow at the bottom right corner of the campus parking map. After 5:00PM, students with commuter permits may park in the lot around Murray Library (#26 on the campus parking map), but must remove their vehicles from this area by the time the library closes in the evening. Commuter parking permits are valid from July 1 - June 30.
Graduate students attending intensive summer courses are permitted to park on campus without obtaining a parking sticker/hang tag. Students should not park in designated employee parking areas or in areas specifically marked for service vehicles.
