Only the person listed on the lease may purchase a permit for apartment parking areas. Additional information on permits for Aggie Village

Residents of International House and University Village are eligible to purchase two apartment parking permits and an additional Z or ZR permit for parking closer to both the main and foothills campuses if desired.

Additional Parking Information

Parking permits can be purchased using cash, credit or monthly payroll deduction. Log in with your CSU eName and password. You may purchase a permit or add and delete vehicles from your permit.

Motorcycle permits are available and valid only in motorcycle parking spaces or in any hourly designated parking space.

Low-powered scooters (under 50 cc or 4476 watts) must have a CSU parking permit and park in motorcycle designated spaces.

Purchasing a permit does not guarantee available parking in specific lots near your destination. Please allow adequate time to park and walk or take the Horn to your destination.

Around the Horn, a free shuttle, connects parking areas to stops across our main campus. More information, schedule and stops.

If you need assistance please contact our office at (970) 491-7041 or visit us in office at 1508 Center Avenue.

Permit refunds will not be issued on monthly and daily permits. Semester and six month long permits are only eligible for a refund within 14 days of purchase. Annual permits may be eligible for a refund at a prorated rate based on date of purchase and are subject to a restocking and administrative fee. Refunds on annual permits will not be issued after March 31.

Parking and Transportation Services is a self-funded department; no tax revenue, general funds, student fees or tuition funds support parking on campus. All maintenance and operations are paid by parking permit fees and citation revenue.

Aggie Village

Housing and Dining Services contracts with Parking and Transportation Services to only sell permits for the number of spaces available at Aggie Village ensuring parking is not over-sold. A waitlist has been set up for residents that want to purchase a permit for the Aggie Village parking lot. Residents are eligible to join the waitlist 30 days prior to the lease effective date and have an option to sign up for the T (Aggie Village Family parking lot) or U (Aggie Village parking lot) permit or both. Residents adding their name to both waitlists should ensure that they assign priority to their preferred permit (U or T) because once you become eligible on the waitlist for your preferred permit, the system will send notification and remove you from your secondary preferred waitlist. If you aren’t eligible for your primary waitlist request, the system will go automatically to your secondary preference and send notification. Individuals on the waitlist will receive notification when the permit is available to purchase and have seven days (day one starts on the notification date) to purchase the permit. If after seven days the permit has not been purchased the permit will be made available to the next student on the waitlist, you will lose your place on the waitlist and be required to rejoin waitlist.

Aggie Village residents who currently have permits for spring term but are leaving for summer will have to reapply to seek a permit for fall. Having an existing permit does not assure getting another permit when there is a gap in residency.

Parking is enforced until 8 p.m. to ensure that residents are able to return to their apartment prior to 8 p.m. and have a parking space. Aggie Village (U) permit holders are permitted to park in the T or Research Blvd (#740) parking lots in the event that parking spaces are not available during non-enforcement hours. If residents identify a vehicle parked without a valid permit they can notify the RA for follow up with the driver of the vehicle in question.

Aggie Village Family and all other CSU apartment housing do not have waitlist for their parking areas.
