Registration FAQ

Will any more PC or R zone spots be made available? I logged onto the parking system at 8 a.m. and attempted to register and kept receiving an error message. Now it says parking is sold out.

Parking permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the PCs and R zone parking permits sell out, no more are made available.

Why do I keep receiving an error message when trying to register?

Due to the large number of students attempting to register as soon as their registration window opens, our system becomes overloaded and will occasionally crash resulting in an error message.

How do I obtain parking if I keep receiving the error message?

Our suggestion is to keep trying! With everyone trying to register at the same time, you have to make your selection at just the right time to secure parking before it sells out.

I had a parking permission in my cart and then it was gone! What do I do?

Unfortunately, a parking permission can be removed from your cart if you do not check out fast enough. Be prepared before your registration time and have all the vehicle information ready to enter to complete the process as quickly as possible.

I did not get my preferred parking. Does that mean I do not get any parking?

No! Overflow parking (RO/C) will open on Thursday at 12 p.m. There is enough overflow parking for everyone that did not get preferred parking. Check back any time after 12 p.m. on Thursday and you will be able to register.

I keep calling, but I can’t get through! It just keeps ringing.

Our phone lines experience very high call volumes during registration days. If the line keeps ringing, it means we are assisting other customers. You can also send us an email or try again later once the call volumes have decreased.

There are multiple people in our family using different devices trying to register at the same time, but we are having issues. What do we do?

Only one person should be logged into the account for registration. If there are multiple people logged into one account then you will experience issues.

The vehicle I currently have is not the vehicle I will have on campus in the Fall. How do I register?

You can update your vehicle information at any time. Register with your current vehicle information but be sure to notify our office to update it once you receive your new vehicle information.

I was a TES employee this summer but will be a student in the Fall. Why can’t I register?

If your TES position has not ended and terminated, you will still have the classification of a TES employee. Contact our office once your TES position has ended and we’ll assist with getting you parking.

Other Information:

  • All vehicle registration transactions are final therefore no refunds are issued under any circumstances.

  • Review all parking zone locations on campus by visiting the parking map.

Graduate Students

  • If your name was submitted to the Graduate School to receive an upgraded permission, you will receive an email with registration instructions if you are selected.

  • If you purchase a PC permission then you will not be eligible for a B zone upgrade.

Personal Bicycles

Bicycles must be registered by the second week of class for each of the semesters (fall, spring and summer). After that time, any bicycle that is not registered or not properly chained to a bicycle rack will be removed and placed in the impound lot at the owner's expense. You may register your bicycle online, from August 2nd of each calendar year through June 30th of the following calendar year, within your AU Access account. To obtain a bicycle permit during July of each calendar year, you must come to the Parking Services Office to register the bicycle. You must pick up the bicycle permit at the Parking Services Office unless you are Faculty/Staff and order the permit before September 4th.
