Parking Services

Parking Information

A permit is required to park in any parking lot on campus. Parking permits (including Motorcycle) for Fall Semester 2018 will be available for purchase online beginning Wednesday, August 1, 2018. Permits are valid through the Spring 2019 Semester.

Your license plate is your permit (after it is registered and the permit fee is paid). Multiple vehicles can be registered, but only one vehicle may be parked on campus. Your license plate must be 100% accurate, or you may receive a ticket.

Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space, but affords the permit holder an opportunity to park in authorized parking areas when a space is available.

All open tickets must be paid before a permit will be issued. Tickets can be paid online at

Parking Enforcement

All lots are enforced from 6 am until 6 pm, Monday through Friday (unless otherwise posted).

Parking Services will resume enforcing all lots on campus beginning Tuesday, January 22, 2019; however, Pay to Park, Reserved Lots, loading zones, handicapped spaces and fire lanes are enforced all year, even during college breaks.

Vehicle Registration

License plate information is required for all annual permits.  Please have this information available when you order your permit online.  More than one vehicle may be registered to a permit (for multiple car households), but only one of those vehicles may park on campus.


Pay-to-Park machines have been installed in all of the Pay-to-Park lots on campus.  These machines will accept Credit/Debit Cards for payment.  Cashless parking is a quick and secure way to pay for parking at CMU! 

  1. Way-to-Park App:  Way to Park is a free App available on all smart phones. It is a new smart app that makes it easier and faster to pay for your parking. The app lets you conveniently pay for parking using your cell phone and allows you to extend time with the app and do not need to walk back to your car to pay. A ¢.35 convenience fee will be applied per transaction.
