    Update Records When Obtaining New Vehicles

    When a student or staff member obtains a new vehicle, he/she must link to  and enter the new vehicle information prior to physically transferring the permit sticker and bringing the new vehicle on campus. If a student has an additional vehicle he/she wishes to register, they may do so only after purchasing a current full-year permit, and must contact the Office of Campus Safety & Security to request pre-qualification for the second permit.

    A permit does not guarantee a parking space in any particular lot. Please be aware that all student lots are first-come, first-served. Father Bernard Court, Saint Benedict Court and Collins-Falvey permits are restricted in number due to a limited amount of parking spaces. Once the allotment is issued, residents of those complexes must contact the Office of Campus Safety and Security at 641-7290 to be pre-qualified for a Resident permit and must park in the appropriate designated lots for Resident permits, not in the other lots listed above.

    • Name
    • Automobile registration number
