Invited Guest Permit Information

Invited Guest Permits must be requested by the hosting department on behalf of the invited guest. Permits may be requested from the Parking and Transportation Services Office for invited guest(s) who meet the eligibility standards. If a guest does not meet the eligibility standards or if the hosting department does not request a permit on behalf of their guest, the campus guest will have to purchase a parking permit.
