2020-2021 Parking Permits

  • A parking permit is required to park on campus.  Students who wish to park a vehicle on campus must purchase a student parking permit to display on the vehicle.
  • Registration for student parking permits is online through September 28th. Students should visit the Campus Safety web page at to complete the registration process.  Students will need their Gustavus email username and password and their vehicle information (license plate, make, color) to register.  Permit decals will be delivered to the students’ campus mailboxes by September 29th for them to pick up during Orientation/move-in.  Permits will be charged to student accounts in September.
  • Starting September 29th you must come to the Campus Safety officer to register and receive a permit. Students will need their Gustavus email username and password and their vehicle information (license plate, make, color) to register.  
  • Student parking stickers are $290 and are valid for the entire school year.
  • If a student changes vehicles during the year, they will need to turn in their old parking sticker to register their new vehicle and get a replacement sticker for $10.  Temporary permits are available for short-term use of alternate vehicles at no charge to sticker owners.
  • Students who purchase a year-long parking permit will be issued red permit decals and will park in parking lot sections with Red Permit parking signs.
  • Students should make themselves familiar with ALL designated Red Permit parking areas, as space nearest their residence hall may not always be available.
  • Temporary permits are also available throughout the year for a daily fee to those who have not purchased a parking sticker.
  • Visitor Parking Lots are closed to student use at all times. A visitor permit will not be given out this semester to any guests wanting to stay overnight due to COVID and the guideline the college has in place.

Bicycles parked on campus need to be registered with the Department of Campus Safety and display a parking permit (no charge).  Select bicycle registration through the permit registration page (you’ll need to know your bicycle’s serial number!).
