Student Parking Guidelines

  • Procedures for All Students:

    Parking permits are available to students who have not purchased a discounted Bus Pass.

    Parking permits are sold on a per quarter basis in the Public Safety Office located in the University Services Building, Room 102.

    Pre-sale begins 3 weeks prior to the first day of class. During this time half the total permits are sold.

    Permit sales will resume on the first day of class in theĀ USB building, outside of theĀ Public Safety Office.

    You will need to have the following ready when purchasing a permit:

    • Campus Identification Card
    • Student Identification Number
    • Vehicle License Plate
    • Payment (Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Debit Card, Checks payable to Seattle University)

    You will not be able to purchase a permit without the above information.

    If you have not registered your vehicle, you will need to fill-out an Automobile & Driver Registration form in addition.

    If you have registered your vehicle in the past, you will not need to fill-out any forms.

    All outstanding parking citations will need to be paid before receiving a permit.

    Additional Procedures for Carpool

    Each carpool member will need to fill-out a Carpool Requirements form. All forms are to be submitted at time of purchase. Not all members need be present at this time. Members not present may pick-up the 'SOV Drive Alone Card' at a later time.

    Additional Procedures for On-Campus Residents (Except Law)

    All residents must pre-register for a parking permit. This is to evaluate the number of Residents requesting a permit. In the case of a higher number of Residents over the number of available permits, there will be a lottery.

    During the Pre-Sale, Residents will need to register for a parking permit. Residents will fill-out a Resident Registration form and verify campus residence. There will be no payment at this time. Residents will receive a 'Resident Temporary Permit' in which to use through the first week of the quarter. The exact date will be indicated on the permit.

    Residents are expected to return the second week of the quarter to make payment and pick-up the new permit. Residents who fail to return after the second week of the quarter will be charged for the use of the Temporary permit and will be placed on a wait-list.
