2019 Permit Sales

Permit sales for the 2019 academic calendar year continues but many classifications are sold-out and are no longer available. If a permit classification that you are eligible for is sold out, you must first purchase a permit of the currently available classification before requesting to be put on a waiting list. Contact DPT by emailing to check on the wait list availability. As the semester continues, some circumstances arise that may make available additional permits in one or more of the sold-out classifications. DPT uses these wait-lists to distribute the available permits on a first-come-first-serve basis.

  • July 9th - Faculty/Staff (Online)
  • July 16th - Residential East * (Sold Out on 7/17 ~12:00 PM - Res. Garage now the only available option for this zone)
  • July 17th - Residential Central * (Sold Out on 7/18 ~1:00 AM - Res. Garage now the only available option for this zone)

* Permits may be limited. When sold-out, Park-N-Ride or other options will still be available. Classification is determined by residential housing assignments and hours completed data provided by other departments. If either is incorrect, in order to change permit availability, DPT must have written statements from Housing for residential zone/hall classification and/or the Registrar's office for hours completed information.
