License Plate Recognition
òòò½ÊÓÆµ has moved to license plate recognition in place of physical permits to ensure vehicles are authorized to park on campus. This change was effective December 2021. Parking Services will also use mounted cameras to scan license plates as valid permits and issue citations to vehicle without University permits.
- The vehicle license plate is the permit, and everyone who parks on campus must register for a permit. Students and employees must purchase a permit to park on any University property. These permits are valid for the entire academic year, beginning the first day of the Fall semester. Visitors may register for free permits – subject to approval by Parking Services.
- The purchaser is responsible for the accuracy of the license plate information at the time the parking permit is obtained. Do not include spaces, dashes, or symbols. [See Examples & Sample Plates (PDF)]
- License plates must face the driving lane to be scanned for compliance. A vehicle may be cited if its plate cannot be scanned.
- Vehicles with only one license plate are not authorized to back in or pull through spaces and may be cited.
- Citations issued due to inaccurate plate information or the inability to scan are the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
- Refunds for permits and waiving of citations will not be done for plates entered inaccurately.
- Employees who may have more than one vehicle registered for their permit, may only park one registered vehicle on campus at a time. If two or more vehicles from a unique parking registration are found parked on campus at the same time, then each vehicle will be issued a citation.
