Any registered student, faculty member, staff member, or member
of an affiliated group with office space on campus who wants to
park a motorized vehicle on campus or authorized city street must
register the vehicle with the Office of Parking Services.

Neighborhood Association. Additional authority to regulate parking
on campus is in compliance with Indiana Code 21-17-5-7. The
University provides parking in designated locations on campus.
University-owned or leased vehicles for shared
department/division use are exempt from any fee to register a
vehicle. At the discretion of the Executive Director of Public
Safety, those vehicles may be required to display a permit.

A fee is charged for each permit issued. A separate permit is
required for each registered vehicle, and permits are
non-transferable and non-returnable. Replacement permits will be
issued at a reduced cost if the old permit, or portion of it, is
presented. Permits expire on July 31 of each calendar year.
Faculty and staff members must pay for their permit upon
receipt. Students will be billed for their permit through the
Office of Student Accounts. Online registration is permitted for a
limited time. Faculty and staff will have payment made through

A second vehicle permit can be purchased for use for faculty and
staff who own two vehicles or for a student who wants to bring a

spaces). The second permit is the same cost as the first
Registration letters will be sent to each faculty/staff and
student during the summer before the fall semester. A registration
form must be filled out completely before it will be processed. If
a registered vehicle is issued a different state license plate
during the school year, the owner must notify the Office of Parking Services
of the new plate information so that the owner's vehicle file
information can be updated. Open registration may also be conducted
in the Office of Parking Services or in the police communications
office located at the University Police Department, 525 W. Hampton
The permit must be placed on the outside lower left corner of
the rear car window. Permits cannot be taped to the inside of the
rear window. In the case of a convertible or a truck with a camper
shell, the permit may be placed on lower left corner of the front
windshield. No other locations are permitted.
Temporary parking passes are required whenever a registered
student, faculty member, staff member, or member of an affiliated
group with office space on campus will be parking a vehicle on
University property for a period of time less than one week. Passes
may be obtained at the Office of Parking Services during posted
hours or from the University Police Department communications
office, 525 W. Hampton Drive, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
Visitors must obtain a temporary parking pass if they are going to
park in any area other than that designated for visitor parking.
Temporary passes generally can only be issued for a period not
longer than one week. However, passes may be issued for a longer
period with justification and approval of the Assistant Chief of
Administration or his or her representative. No other division or
college is permitted to issue a temporary parking pass without
approval from the chief of police. Requests for temporary parking
passes must be in writing and submitted to the chief of police. All
visitors to campus are required to park in the Clowes Memorial Hall
lot. Temporary parking passes will only be granted in a few
circumstances, and fees will no longer be waived.
Temporary Passes for ADA parking, and Special Needs
Temporary passes for ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act)
parking and Special Needs-ADA designated spaces are reserved for
persons with vehicles displaying the correct authorization to park
there. These are designated tow-away zones for violators. This
restriction is enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A
violation of this policy could result in a ticket being issued as
Any faculty, staff, student, or University affiliate wishing to
park in University-controlled ADA parking must have their vehicle
registered with the Department of Public Safety Office of Parking
Services. A properly designated permit must be affixed to the
vehicle as required by the Vehicle Registration and Parking Policy,
Section II, (A). In addition to having a parking permit, the
vehicle must display a University-issued ADA parking permit. To
obtain a University-issued ADA permit, the person who registered
the vehicle must present written documentation showing the operator
is entitled to be issued an ADA permit. Displaying a state ADA
parking placard alone does not permit parking in a
University-controlled ADA parking space.
A vehicle displaying a University ADA parking permit shall be
parked in an ADA parking space. If there are no ADA parking spaces
available, the permit will allow the driver to park in any space in
lots designated as A, B, or C. There is no cost for the permit.
