The new Automated Issuance Management System (AIMS) provides convenient access to parking account information using your current employee login ID and password. Employees can make a permit purchase, ticket payment and access their account information.
Hangtags may be purchased annually or by semester. Blue window decals are available on an annual basis only. An annual motorcycle permit may be purchased at the discounted rate by those with a valid vehicle permit (excluding green permits).
A free parking option is available to any interested faculty, staff, student or visitor. Those who take advantage of this option will receive a green permit, which allows for remote parking in Lot C3 on the west side of campus.
The Board of Trustees authorized a plan through which the purchase of a parking permit can be made as a tax-free benefit through payroll deduction (excluding motorcycle permits).
