Online Ordering

Colorado Mesa University Parking Services is selling permits online. Fall 2016 permits will be available for purchase beginning Tuesday, August 2, 2016. If you purchase a permit during Fall 2016 or Spring 2017, it is valid through August 1, 2017.

Online ordering provides a convenient way to obtain a permit. At the time you order, your permit can be paid with a credit/debit card or billed to your student or employee account.

All online permits can be picked up at the Information Desk in The University Center. Your MAVcard and 700 ID # are required to pick up your permit.

Reserved Permits

Tired of searching for a parking space? Some reserved spaces are still available. The reserved permit is a good way to guarantee a space in a specific lot at any time of the day. Stop by The Information Desk at The University Center for more information.

GVT/MAVbikes Program

Stop by the Outdoor Program to check out the MAVbikes Program and the University Center Information Desk to check out the Grand Valley Transit System offers available to students. These are great ways to get around campus and town as an alternative to buying a parking permit.

Guidelines for $50 Parking Permit Credit to CMU License Plate Holders

CMU license plates can be purchased at the DMV.

Credit will be placed on the individual’s university account regardless of method used to pay for parking permit.  If there are no charges on the individual’s account to absorb the credit, the Business Office will issue a $50 check as soon as possible.

Credit will be issued only after the parking permit has been purchased.

The credit will be validated by the individual presenting a copy of the license plate registration and a photo of the CMU plate to Parking Services.

This program applies only to CMU plates, not the previously issued MSC plates.

The program is not applicable to motorcycles, as CMU plates are not available for motorcycles.

Only one $50 credit per parking permit and CMU plate.  The same CMU license plate cannot be used for additional credits in subsequent years.

The program is available only to current CMU students and employees who are eligible to purchase a 2016-17 CMU parking permit (reserved, faculty/staff, commuter, or residence hall).  It is not available to individuals who obtain a parking permit as a part of their recreation membership to the CMU Maverick Center.

It has not yet been determined if or when this program will expire.
