Student Housing Resident Parking

The Student Housing Resident Parking is an effort to address the specific needs of residents in Housing Buildings 1000, 2000 and 3000 where the demands for overnight and extended stay parking are considered to be greatest. 

Only individuals issued a “Housing Resident” decal are authorized to park in the Building 1000 parking lot. All Student Housing residents registering a vehicle on campus will be issued a Student Housing Resident decal for their vehicle. This decal is required to park in the Student Housing resident only parking lot.

Only Housing staff who are issued a resident parking decal are authorized to park in the Building 1000 parking lot.

Authorized visitors must go to the Parking Office and request a temporary Student Housing Resident Parking visitor pass. The temporary Student Housing Resident Parking visitor pass must be displayed in the windshield of the vehicle.

Building 1000 parking passes may be obtained at the Parking Office, Building D, Room 1123.

Disabled Permit Parking – Resident Housing Area

The disabled parking spaces in the Building 1000 parking lot area are always available to anyone displaying a valid disabled permit decal or tag.
