Vehicle Registration

Registration authorizes an individual to park on University property. Registration and possession of a valid permit DO NOT guarantee the holder a specific parking space. It provides the individual the opportunity to park within the area designated for specific type of permit. The back of your prepaid permit lists all lots and garages to which you have access.

Who Must Register

In order to park in any Cleveland State University lot or garages, students, faculty, staff, vendors and contractors are required to register their vehicles (license plate, make, model, color and year) and obtain a parking permit from the Department of Parking & Transportation Services. Parking permits will not be issued to any individuals having parking fines and/or outstanding obligations which are unpaid. Unregistered vehicles are restricted to parking only in facilities that allow visitor parking. Failure to register all license plates or inaccurate registrations may result in citations.
