Parking on campus is monitored through a virtual permit system that scans your license plate. Your license plate is linked to your parking permit or hourly parking payment.

Parking is enforced 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday-Friday, or as posted, including fall, winter, spring and summer breaks. Residence hall parking spaces and other designated areas have extended enforcement hours.

Overnight parking on campus is permitted in the Research Blvd parking lot with a valid CSU permit or in pay by hour designated spaces on the first level of the Lake Street and South College parking garages only. Overnight parking in CSU Apartments or Residence Halls designated parking areas is only permissible with a valid CSU Resident Hall or CSU Apartment permit.

Please carefully review signs posted at the entrance to each parking area for specific enforcement times and permit requirements. CSU apartments, Lake Street Garage and South College Ave Garage restrictions are applicable 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
