CSU employs a Proximity Based Parking System. Proximity based means the hangtag type you purchase determines where you can park. The proximity parking is a tiered price system that gives patrons the option to purchase parking and walk at a value price or choose a higher priced option that permits parking that is closer to the core of campus.

Hangtag Information

  • Hangtags are priced based on the parking access they provide relative to the parking location’s proximity to the core of campus (see Table A below).  Parking patrons have several options:
  • White prepaid hangtags provide access to non-core, perimeter parking (including access to the South Garage). This hangtag option is priced to provide the maximum value.
  • Green prepaid hangtags provide access to parking locations in the core of campus and to the South Garage.
  • A Prospect Garage (PG) hangtag will be assessed an additional “Limited Access” surcharge of $25.00 per semester.  PG hangtags ONLY provide access to the Prospect Garage and South Garage and are not accepted in other parking locations on campus. PG access is restricted to:
                a) students living in a University residence hall and
                b) a limited number of employees.
  • Scratch Off hangtags are a prepaid option for parking on a single day. They are also designated White or Green and provide access to the same designated parking locations as the semester prepaid hangtags. Scratch Offs do NOT allow access to the South or Prospect Garage, Lot 22, RG or meters.

General Information

  • White, Green and PG hangtags are valid for parking in designated parking locations from 5:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. daily.
  • Your hangtag provides access to all locations assigned to your hangtag; not a specific lot or garage.
  • Once a garage has filled, it will not be re-opened until 10 spaces become available.
  • Patrons who wish to park on campus overnight will be required to purchase an overnight sticker for an additional $25 per semester. (Employees who have work assignments that include hours between midnight and 5 a.m. will be exempt from the surcharge but will be required to show proof of work hours to get the overnight decal).
  • All attended garages and surface lots will be accessible only by patrons with prepaid parking hangtags during a regular weekday.
  • CSU has an Escalation Based Citation System. Read about the new system and tips for avoiding citations here.
