If a vehicle not registered with the Office of Parking Services is brought on campus as a temporary replacement vehicle for one previously registered, a temporary parking permit must be obtained at the Office of Student Accounts.

Temporary permits may be obtained from Campus Police or the Office of Student Accounts for loading, unloading, pick-up, and drop-off in otherwise “no parking” areas with the exception of the following areas: fire hydrants or zones, handicapped spaces, walkways or by dumpsters. This type of permit will be valid for a maximum of one hour, unless otherwise specified on the permit.
