Student Parking

Parking Permits

Student parking permits may be purchased online on this page:

Please note that students will not be able to set up an account in this parking system until the next business day after registration is complete (if a student registers on a Friday or the day before a holiday they will be able to purchase on Monday or the next business day after the holiday).

For Central Students, once the purchase has been finalized, we will instruct you to pick up the permit at the parking garage booth from the parking attendant. For Wood Tech Students, please make sure to choose WTC as your campus. These permits will be mailed out once the purchase has been finalized.

  • Important—if you are a nursing student taking classes at the Pacific Tower, please obtain your permit from the folks at the location. Ask your administrator for assistance. If you are a nursing student taking classes at North or South, please obtain your permit directly from the cashiers at the individual campuses.

Students may purchase permits online:
