Purchase Bulk Amount of One Day Permits

When a department would like to request a bulk amount of permits to hold within their office and use at their leisure for guests coming to campus, one day or temporary permits can be requested by using the One Day Permit Order Form, to which the department will receive an IDB. One day permits are $2.00 each and temporary permits are $2.00 a day.

One day and temporary permits can be requested for all pay lots on the NDSU campus, including Memorial Union (MU) lot, T2 lot, Visitor's lot, and the Wellness Center (WE) lot. In addition to the 4 pay lots, departments can purchase one day and temporary permits for BH Visitor, KH, RF, RH, RP, and SGC parking lots. To view all the valid lots for guests, please view the NDSU Parking Map.

Additionally, the NDSU Parking Office now offers the option for departments to make a bulk visitor permit request using the NDSU Parking Portal. This option can be used if the department is holding a large event on-campus and they would like an email option instead of mailing or handing out paper one day permits. The department will now be able to make the request online and once approved, the department will receive a purchase link to send to all attendees via email. These permits will then be purchased online (at no charge) by each guest and the department making the request will receive an IDB for the charge of each permit requested. Departments will be charged the same fee, $2.00 each for the number of permits requested.
