I'm inclined to say that most people here do not live on campus or have graduated... but I am a scrambling freshman! Does anyone have a housing parking permit to sell me? Or do you know anyone with one they don't need? I want to have some back up options in case my request doesn't go through at the housing office. ;]

you have to buy your own, their quarterly/yearly so most people wouldn't have a still valid one to sell.

You can't sell/buy them from other students. There is always enough housing permits, but if for some crazy reason there isn't this year, just get a gold pass. Sure, you'll have to park in lot 30 (commuter lot) or 26 (baseball complex), but it'll be a parking pass. Good luck!

Apparently there is some sort of waiting list this year for housing permits?? Well a lot of people didn't get one and there isn't enough for everyone. I have no idea. LOL. I guess I will find out.

And if I end up having to get a gold pass, can I really park in those places 24 hours?? I don't want tickets. :p

lot 26 is not a 24 hour lot.

lot 30 is a 24 hour lot (my friend used to park there for weeks at a time).

reiphil is right about the lot times. although you can park in most lots (except housing lots) between 4pm and 7am with a gold permit, so if you're only running into the dorms for a couple of hours you can always move the car back across campus later.

All housing permits are First-Come, First-Serve, and are limited to the number of spaces at each complex. If you applied for housing early on, and requested a parking permit at the same time, your chances are good. The later you turned in your parking request, the less your chances are of getting one.

If you don't get one, though, you'll need to go to the Housing office to request that they tell Parking Services you need a permit, otherwise they won't sell you one. The Parking Services rules leave no room for people who weren't lucky. Basically, it's a "their way or the highway" kinda deal. But if you ask someone in the Housing Office to speak to them on your behalf, then they listen.
