Parking Permit Information
- All motor vehicles parking on the NDSU campus are required to have a valid NDSU parking permit and must meet North Dakota Motor Vehicle Department requirements. Faculty, staff and students may purchase one parking permit per academic year. NDSU parking permits are the property of NDSU.
- Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee the holder a parking space. Faculty/staff refer to your parking permit for overflow location(s). Overflow lot is only valid if your assigned lot is full.
- Students moving from NDSU housing must surrender or exchange their parking permit. Failure to do so may result in loss of campus parking privileges.
- The annual parking fee for full-time or part-time students (undergraduate, graduate, research assistants) and full-time or part-time faculty/staff (adjunct lecture, postdoctoral, visiting scholars) is set by Facilities Management after review by the Campus Space and Facilities Committee of the University Senate. There is a charge for replacement of lost permits. NDSU permits are honored on any vehicle you choose to drive to campus.
- It is preferred the permit be hung on the rearview mirror, but alternatively it can be displayed on the driver side dashboard. Improperly displaying your permit, even if parking in your assigned lot, will result in a citation being issued. Permits must be fully visible to be valid.
- Students who leave the university before the end of the regular school year, or who no longer need to park on campus, may be eligible for a possible prorated refund. Refunds will follow the academic calendar date on the last day to withdraw to zero credits.
