Permit Information for the 2017-2018 Academic Year

Learn About Parking Permits for the Academic Year 2017 - 2018

FALL SEMESTER

Reserve permit sales will begin on Monday, August 7th.   If the reserve lot you desire is not available online, please add your name to a Waitlist.  Please do not place your name on more than 2 Waitlist.

General and Residential permits will be available to purchase beginning Monday, August 14th.   

IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR RESIDENTIAL PERMITS:

This year, we will be introducing “Virtual Permits” for residential students only.  Virtual permits will allow resident students to park in their designated area without being required to display a physical permit on the vehicle.  We use License Plate Recognition (LPR) vehicles to verify registrations in all lots. You must visit the website to order a permit.

NO RESIDENTIAL PERMITS WILL BE SOLD IN THE PARKING OFFICE.

After Hour permits for designated resident students (Park Point and Province) will be available to purchase as well.  After Hours permits are specifically for designated resident students (Park Point and The Province) and students who must be on campus after 5 p.m.  We can provide an accommodations to assist those students who work on or off campus.  In order to receive an accommodation on the days you work, you must obtain a Work Verification Letter (WVL) from your place of employment and provide your work schedule. 

We encourage everyone to utitlize our online services at myparking.rit.edu

MAGIC Spell Studios Construction

In November, RIT announced exciting plans to build a new home for MAGIC Spell Studios adjacent to Gannett Hall. This project will break ground soon and is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

The fenced in portion will take up all of the current handicapped spaces in E-Lot. Therefore, we will be converting reserved and visitor spaces into handicapped in order to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The project manager will inform our office when the reserve spots can be released.  Please pay close attention to all signage when parking, as the existing signage may be repositioned.  

We are allowing E-lot reserve holders to park in F or D lot reserve for the rest of this semester. 

Please direct any questions to our parking email at parking@rit.edu

We thank you for your patience and cooperation.
