  • 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 dps@stkate.edu 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.


  • Student & Faculty Parking

    Students and faculty/staff parking on campus should purchase a permit type that fits their needs.
