Registering Your Vehicle
Who Can Register
Any student who has completed at least 28 approved credits can register for campus parking privileges. (The 28 credit requirement does not apply to commuters or graduate students.) You can only register vehicles owned by you, or by a member of your immediate family (mother, father, brother, sister).
How to Register
Come to the Parking Office in 1 Eisenhower Parking Deck. You may also register your vehicle online.
When to Register
Vehicles must be registered by the first day of classes each semester or by the first business day following your arrival on campus. Permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Permits are available to pick up at the Parking Office.
Student Vehicle Spring/Summer 2013 Registration
If you will be living off campus, there are two on-campus options available:
- Students commuting to campus may purchase a permit to park their cars in the commuter lots: Lot 44, Stadium West, and Porter North during the day. Commuter permits are not valid from 2:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. in any campus parking lot, seven days a week.
- The second option is Long-Term Storage parking in Lot 43. This option would be for students living off campus and unable to acquire parking at their place of residence. This option allows 24 hour parking in lot 43. Off campus addresses must include street number, street name, and apartment number if applicable.
Starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, you may register for either Commuter parking or Long-Term Storage parking online for Summer 2013. This applies to students enrolled for Maymester, summer session I, or both summer sessions I and II. If parking is needed only for summer session II, registration will be available at the Parking Office only beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, June 17, 2013.
If you will be living on campus:
Resident student parking consists of six parking options: Lot 22 (for residents of Eastview Terrace), Lot 81 (for residents of South & Pollock Halls), Lot 42 (for residents of Nittany Apartments & Nittany Hall), Lot 82 (for residents of North & East Halls), YWH parking on levels 4 & 5 of the Nittany Deck (for residents of West Halls), and Lot 83 which is open to all eligible students residing on campus. Lot B11 (for residents of White Course Apartments only). Note: B11 permits are delivered to White Course Apartments not mailed.
Starting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23, 2013, you may register for Resident student parking online for Summer 2013. This applies to students enrolled for Maymester, summer session I, or both summer sessions I and II. If parking is needed only for summer session II, registration will be available at the Parking Office only beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, June 17, 2013.
Don't forget, all bicycles operated within the Centre Region must be registered. Registration is free and easy to Penn State students and staff.
You will need the make, model, color, and serial number of the bicycle to complete the registration process. At the end of the process, a registration number will be automatically assigned, and the registration sticker will be mailed to the local address provided during the registration process within two business days.
Note: Because the permit is sent to the local address, if moving to a residence hall or apartment, please do not register until arriving on campus or into your new apartment. Off campus addresses must include street number, street name, and apartment number if applicable.
