Vehicle registration for students, faculty and staff is managed by Transportation Services. In order to park in University lots (not including any pay lots or meters), a valid parking permit decal or visitor permit must be displayed in your vehicle. Visitor, contractor, vendor and service vehicles must be registered at Transportation Services.
Students must have their vehicles registered by September 1, 2012. Employees must register by January 1, 2013 and may pay for their permits by payroll deduction through TechSelect during Fall open enrollment, by direct debit from a checking account or at the cashier's office. You must show your ID and vehicle registration(s) to obtain a permit. We will remove old decals free of charge at Husky Motors.
