Student Parking Pass Registration & Pick Up

After registering your vehicle online, students should pick up parking passes at the University Police Department. The University Police Department is located in the TG House on Lower College Drive in parking lot #3. We are open 24/7.

Parking registration information can be found here:

If for some reason you are unable to register your vehicle online, you can pay the $95 parking registration fee at Student Records and Financial Services and then bring the receipt to the University Police Department and we will issue your permit to you at that time. You will need to provide the vehicle license plate, year, make/model and color.

Your vehicle must have a hang tag displayed on the rearview mirror by 9/4. If you are unable to get your pass prior to 9/4, you may stop by our office for a temporary parking pass. 

Students that reside on campus please be sure to park in a designated student parking spot (NOT commuter, faculty & staff, visitor, future pioneer or accessible parking spaces). 


WELLSVILLE CAMPUS COMMUTERS: Students that only commute to the Wellsville Campus can pick their parking passes up on that campus during the first week of classes.

Message from University Police

As the fall semester commences, University Police are reminding all students not to enter or walk within any campus areas that are currently under construction. This also includes all areas that are blocked off to vehicle traffic or fenced off in any way. Many unseen hazards exist within these areas and emergency personnel are unable to gain access or assist in the event of an accident or emergency. 

In addition, students are also unauthorized from tampering with any of the construction vehicles or property at any time. This includes moving or interfering with any cones or barriers observed on campus.
