Most residential housing locations have parking located nearby that is reserved for Campus Housing permit holders. Permit zones are unique to the housing neighborhood, and permits are distributed through a waitlist system that is determined by a student’s housing priority date.

Any student who holds an active housing contract may request consideration for issuance of a CH permit by placing themselves on the campus housing permit waitlist. Students who do not have an active housing contract are not considered eligible for CH parking.
CH permits are awarded based on student housing priority dates as well as space availability and the residential zones. The waitlist opens in March, and assignments will be made beginning in early August until all permits available are purchased. The offer of a permit is not based upon when a student joins the waitlist.
CH Permits are issued at the cap of the amount of parking in a given zone to ensure that each permit holder will always have a place to park at all times. Campus housing zones are not oversold.
Not all students who join the waitlist will be offered a CH permit. If an offer for a permit has not been received, a ST permit can be purchased. ST permits will provide parking in the stadium purple lot at gates 9 and 10 off Dunn Street and the 45/46 Bypass. Parking in this lot will not require an ST permit until September 1. If a CH permit is offered after an ST permit has been purchased, an exchange of the permit can be made with the ST fee being applied towards the CH permit fee. CH permits also provide for stadium and evening parking on campus, and so neither ST or Evening permits are needed when a student has a CH permit.
