  • Guest Parking Permit Requests

    Guests are required to display a guest parking permit and park in the Dew Drop lot or the O'Shaughnessy lot. Permit parking is provided every day from 2 a.m.–5 p.m. No permit is required from 5 p.m.–2 a.m.

    Students, faculty and staff may obtain guest parking permits in person at the Public Safety office at any time, or request an electronic guest permit by email to with 48 hours' notice.

    For electronic requests, Public Safety will need the following information:

    • Date of visit
    • Purpose of visit (such as where on campus they will be visiting)
    • Name of individual visiting
    • Contact # (a number where the vehicle owner can be reached while on campus)

    Traditionally, when an electronic guest permit is emailed, the requester is carbon copied (cc:) on the email so they will know it has been sent. We do not guarantee a permit will be sent out to individuals if the date requested is within 48 hours of the date needed.
