Parking Permits

All faculty, staff, and students with a vehicle on campus between the hours of 6am-4pm Monday through Friday during the traditional undergraduate academic sessions must have a parking permit. Permits are renewed annually. There are three types of parking permits:

  • Commuter: For students who do not live on campus. Students in the College of Professional Studies should order a permit if they are going to be on campus during the hours of enforcement. Cost is $45 for the initial permit.
  • Residential: For students who live on campus. Cost is $100 for the initial permit.
  • Staff/Faculty: For employees of the university including graduate assistants.

*Visitors must obtain a temporary permit in advance or from the front desk of the building they are visiting and then place the permit on the dash on the right hand side, after which you may park in any C designated lots. More information is listed below.

There is a $5.95 fulfillment fee for all permits ordered online.

Additional permits cost $15 per permit. Each account can have up to three additional vehicles assigned.

To acquire a parking permit or pay a notice, visit our permit store.

Parking permit applications are approved by the Student Services department and issued by The Permit Store. Temporary permits are issued as needed by the main desk in each building for visitors. A new parking permit is required for all faculty, staff, students, and contract employees at the Fort Wayne campus each academic year. Permits may be purchased beginning July 1 each year. If you have a valid permit but are driving a rental vehicle, you will need a temporary permit from the office of student affairs.

All parking permits will be distributed to the address you indicate at the time of applying. Be sure to take into consideration whether to have your permit sent to your summer home address or your university address. Temporary permits (valid for 30 days from approval date) may be printed from the permit store once your application is approved and then displayed in your windshield until your permanent permit arrives. If driving a car temporarily due to rental, loan, or repairs, you are required to obtain a short term permit from the student affairs office which will be issued at no charge upon verification of a valid current permit.

At no time should students or employees park in any reserved or visitor space without proper approval.

New Vehicle or Lost Permit

If a permit is lost or stolen you are required to report the loss and apply for a replacement online. Appeal for the cost of a replacement permit due to theft or damage must be made to Devin Blackford, Director of Safety and Security. If you are planning to change vehicles, the new vehicle should be added to your permit store account before requesting a replacement permit. If you are changing vehicles but have the original permit, you can delete the old vehicle and assign the new vehicle to your permit using your permit store account.

Temporary Permits for Current Permit Holders

If you have ordered a permit and it is pending or simply has not arrived yet, you may print out your temporary version through your permit store account. If at any point during the academic year, your vehicle is in repair or if you have a different vehicle short term, you may request a temporary permit from Security, Devin Blackford or Donna Sark in Student Affairs.


All visitors on campus during the designated hours of enforcement mentioned above will need to obtain a temporary permit. Temporary permits may be emailed to you in advance or obtained from the main desk of the building you are visiting when you arrive. Visitors to residence hall buildings during those times may obtain a permit from the office of student affairs in the Andorfer Commons. Visitor permits allow for parking in any C designated parking lots as shown on the Campus Map.
