|Register now for 2018-19 parking
More than 400 students have already registered vehicles for next year. Have YOU? It's best to register now so you don’t forget after May Term. The process only takes a minute or two!
Why register now?
- Avoid the $30 late registration fee. Any vehicle registered after June 26 incurs that fee.
- Get a parking voucher, good for one ticket.
- Maximize the chances of being assigned to the parking lot of your choice. Not registering guarantees you’ll be assigned to D Lot.
To register, log in on InfoCenter. Under “Offices” select “Safety & Security” and then click on “Parking Registration.” If you register correctly, you’ll receive a confirmation email. If you have any problems registering, contact Campus Security or visit the Campus Security Office weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
