Commuter Student Parking 2016-2017

Purchase permits via CSU GO Online Parking System, by logging in using your CSU ID and Campus Net password. Permits are priced based on the parking access they provide relative to the parking location’s proximity to the core of campus. Viking Cards will be required for permit holders to access garages. View the various parking locations on the Parking Map. Please ensure your parking account is up-to-date and all citations are paid; outstanding balances will prevent/delay the purchase of your preferred permit. All permits are limited and may sell out. Commuter Students have several options:

  • White permits provide access to non-core surface lots and the South Garage. This permit option is priced to provide the maximum value.
  • Green permits provide access to all core garages, a few core surface lots and the South Garage.
  • Evening [valid after 3:30 p.m.] permits provide access to most white and green parking locations based on specific time restrictions. South Garage access is not available with Evening and Night permits. This permit is only available during fall and spring semesters.
  • Night [valid after 5:30 p.m.] permits provide access to most white and green parking locations based on specific time restrictions. South Garage access is not available with Evening and Night permits. This permit is only available during fall and spring semesters.
