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. 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. The CSU GO Online Parking System is optimized for use with Internet Explorer. Using other browser types may cause errors. All permits are limited and may sell out. View the various parking locations on the Parking Map

Restricted permits (adjunct & Part-time faculty) 

Restricted Permits (Adjunct & Part-Time Faculty) -Restricted Permits are only available to semester-based Faculty and must be purchased in the parking office. Semester-based Faculty who do not have a signed contract should bring a letter of intent, on departmental letterhead, signed by their Chair/Dean. The day(s) of the week you opt to park will be reflected on the permit. Permit holders who need access to campus on a day not reflected on their permit will need to park in a visitor/hourly parking lot. Limited-access permits will be valid from 5:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on the pre-selected days reflected on the face of the permit. These permits offer significant savings vs paying the daily visitor rate. Please note: Staff and Full-Time Faculty are not eligible to purchase restricted permits. Limited Access Adjunct Permits will not have access to South Garage.
