Registration and Reserve Lots

Vehicle registration will begin in August and students will have the option of paying fees in one of three ways:

  1. Online by credit card (recommended)
  2. Online by having the fees billed directly to their student account (recommended)
  3. In-person at the parking office in Grace Watson Hall (with cash, check, or credit card)

Once the permit has been purchased it will be mailed to your local address (permits are issued based on local addresses: local addresses are defined as the residence you are living at while actively attending classes at RIT). If you are not sure about your local address or how to change it, click here.

RIT has a limited number of reserved parking spaces which can be purchased. Resident and Designated Resident students are not eligible to purchase a reserve permit; however, Commuter students do qualify. The reserve permits are sold on a first-come-first-served basis. The annual fees for the reserved parking spaces are as follows (the annual registration fee is included in these prices):


Single Lot (D, E, F, J, L, M, S, CIMS West, Grace Watson, Gleason Circle, Sol Heuman Circle)
Multi Lot (good only in E, F, J, L, S) and electric vehicle charging station access


If you only park on campus at night, you may purchase an After Hours pass that allows you to park in general parking lots from 5pm-8am. Reserved parking is enforced from 5am-5pm.

* NOTE: U-Lot – There will be a few days throughout the year that a small portion of the lot will be blocked off for events.

The RIT parking office regularly enforces the parking rules on campus. All drivers of vehicles on campus are expected to park in accordance with RIT parking policies & procedures as outlined at the RIT parking website.

All citations issued to vehicles parked on campus in violation of RIT parking policies & procedures will be the responsibility of the person who registered the vehicle.
