All students are automatically charged a Safety and Transportation fee.  This fee is not a parking fee and is not used for parking facilities.  This fee is used to provide enhanced police services and shuttle services from far parking lots to the campus.

Transportation Services

University Hall (Lot 100) and the Four Diamonds Sports Complex are serviced by a shutle system.  The Four Diamonds shuttle runs fall, spring, and summer semesters only from 6:40 a.m. to 10:35 p.m. Monday-Friday.  If you plan to park at the Four Diamonds, please see the shuttle schedule.  Due to increased demand on this system, students parking at the Four Diamonds should anticipate arriving 30 minutes prior to the start of their first class.

Service From Centennial Hall to University Hall:  For detailed information on service to University Hall, from Centennial Hall, see the on-line schedule.

Purchasing a Permit and Having it Mailed

Student's may elect to have their permit mailed to their home via regular mail by purchasing their permit on-line and agreeing to pay a $4.00 shipping and handling charge.  This is an excellent alternative to having to wait in long lines at Parking Services to purchase a permit.
