Update: Penn State Parking has announced that Lot 81 parking in South and Pollock Halls along with Lot 22 permits for Eastview Terrace have sold out for the fall semester. Spots in Lot 83 are still available. 

Penn State parking announced dates for 2017-2018 parking registration, with this year’s registration occurring exclusively online.


Registration begins on Tuesday, Aug. 15, at noon  for resident student permits  (B11, L22, L42, L81, L82, L83, YWH), Wednesday, Aug. 16, at noon for off-campus long-term storage (P43), and Thursday, Aug. 17, at noon for Off-campus student Commuter (SCR).

To complete registration, students must have completed at least 28 credits (excluding commuter and graduate students), have a valid Penn State Access account and license plate information handy. Vehicles registered by students must be owned by the student or someone in the student’s’ immediate family.

Students wanting to register should head here on the date specified above and will receive a temporary permit to display in their car until permits are mailed to the students’ local or campus address.


Students eligible for parking upgrades such as graduate students, student-athletes, and those with state-issued American with Disabilities Act (ADA) placards must visit the Parking Office to receive an upgraded permit.

With registration taking place exclusively online, the Parking Office anticipates a high volume of users on the site during registration and urges students to refrain from reloading the page or using the back button when registering for permits.

More information on parking is available from Penn State Transportation Services here.
