Change to parking — no permits needed this year

Due to the greatly reduced number of students and employees on campus this academic year, parking permits will not be required to park in surface lots or parking garages. For students living on campus, a free permit to park in housing lots will be required and is available from University Housing. If you have already purchased a parking permit for the fall semester, Parking Services will automatically issue you a refund.
