Changes to 2014-15 student parking registration at University Park

Beginning with the 2014 fall semester, for most University Park students, parking registration will no longer involve a visit to the Parking Office.

Penn State Transportation Services, in partnership with Weldon, Williams & Lick (WW&L) and T2 Systems, is launching PermitDirect, a service providing online parking permit registration, direct local mailing of permits by WW&L, and access to printable temporary permits allowing students to park immediately, no matter when they purchase a permit. It also will prove more convenient and save students’ time.

With the exception of commuter students, students must have completed at least 28 credits prior to the date of registration in order to be eligible for on-campus parking. Student parking registration for the 2014-15 academic year begins at 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 18 for students living off campus. Registration for on-campus students follows at 8 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Students eligible for upgrades to a base student permit, such as graduate assistants, student-athletes and those with a state-issued ADA placard, must visit the Parking Office to obtain their upgraded permit.  However, registration for a base student permit needs to be completed online prior to applying for any upgrades.

Visit the Student Parking page for more information on parking permit rates, the registration process, and how to purchase a permit online.

Questions or concerns can be directed to the Parking Office by phone at 814-865-1436 or by email at
