Decal Information

Displaying Parking Decals

Each vehicle that has been registered on campus for parking must bear a valid (unexpired) parking decal or temporary dashboard permit. The parking decal/permit must be visibly displayed whenever the vehicle is parked on campus. Expiration dates are depicted on the decal/permit.

Hole-Punched Student Parking Decals

If your student parking decal has a hole punched through the expiration date, the decal is only valid for the fall semester of any given academic year.

Housing Status Changes

If your housing status changes from residential to commuter or commuter to residential you are required to obtain the appropriate parking decal.You must scrape the decal off your car and come to the Office of Student Accounts to obtain the new parking decal. You are responsible for any additional charges or will be refunded if needed.

Failure to obtain the correct decal may result in ticketing.

Motorcycle Parking

Students are eligible to register one motorcycle in addition to their one vehicle permit. If a student wishes to only purchase a motorcycle decal, they will incur the cost of either a residential decal or commuter decal, depending on his or her housing status.

Motorcycle parking will be granted for the lot in which a student is granted access for their automobile. For example, if a student lives in Decker and has a decal for Lots 11 and 13, he or she can park a motorcycle in Lots 11 or 13.

Motorcycles must be parked in an actual parking spot. Improper parking may result in ticketing or towing.

A decal can be obtained through the Office of Student Accounts.
