There are several ways to purchase a permit:
Online: Purchasing parking permits online is strongly suggested. Visit the Parking Services website and click on NEW – Buy Permits and Pay or Appeal Tickets Online. When purchasing a permit online you will be allowed to print off a temporary permit, that is good for 10 days, until you receive your parking permit. Note: No additional fee is applied for this option. Permits purchased this way will be mailed within three business days.
In Person: Parking permits may be purchased at the Parking Services office, 121 Normal Road, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Note: There is an additional $10 fee applied to all permits purchased in person, excluding reserved permits.
By Mail: Download and print the Permit Application Form. Mail the completed form, along with a check (payable to NIU) for the amount of the permit to: Northern Illinois University, Campus Parking Services, 121 Normal Road, DeKalb IL 60115. The parking permit will be mailed within three business days of receiving your order. Note: There is an additional $10 fee applied to all permits purchased in the mail, excluding reserved permits.
An annual motorcycle permit may be purchased at the discounted rate by those with a valid vehicle permit (excluding green permits). If ordering both permits at the same time, you must first order the vehicle permit to get the discounted motorcycle permit. Note: There is an additional $10 fee applied to all permits purchased in person, excluding reserved permits.
A free parking option is also available to any interested student, faculty, staff or visitors. Those who take advantage of this option, after registering their vehicle with Campus Parking Services, will receive a green permit which allows them to park remotely in Lot C3 near the Convocation Center on the west side of campus. A map all campus parking is available online.
Once you receive your new parking permit you may begin to use it immediately.
