Where Can I park

Any individual who parks a vehicle on the main campus of Colorado State University must have their license plate linked to a valid permit. Permits can be purchased from the Parking Services website, the Parking Office, or from the Pay-to-Park machines around campus. Parking and Transportation Services issues permits based on your status with the University.

If you use the Pay-to-Park machines, please follow the instructions on the machines. Only input your license plate number as it appearas on your plate (or temporary tag or scooter registration sticker) and omit the state and any spaces or special characters.

Visitors to the University may use the Pay-to-Park machines or come to the Parking Office in the Lake Street Parking Garage to get a daily, monthly, or 6-month permit and get a complimentary campus map and detailed instructions on where to park.

Permits

Faculty, Staff, Students, Emeritus Faculty, and Retirees who have a valid CSU EID can log into your parking account through this website and manage the license plates on your customer account and on your permit. If you do not have a valid CSU EID or have problems, please contact the Parking Office.
