Registering for PSU Parking Permits

Whether you commute with a bicycle, motorcycle or a car, you need to register them and get a permit to get around the university. There are parks designated for bikes and cars of students and staff around the campus. To get your ticket, you may visit the PSU transportation website or find your way to the office on campus which opens only on weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Here are the contact details:

  • Address: 1 Eisenhower Parking Deck, University Park, PA 16802
  • Phone Number: 814-865-1436
  • Email: parking@psu.edu

PSU is a bicycle-friendly school and all bike riders are encouraged to register their bikes for free to prevent others from accidentally taking your bicycle.

PSU Parking Laws

It is also good practice to know the key laws governing traffic and parking within the university premises. Generally, you are not permitted to park:

  1. In a lot designated for on-campus students as an off-campus student
  2. In areas reserved for staffs and workers in the school
  3. In areas reserved for incoming guests
  4. In areas earmarked for intra-school shuttle and buses
  5. Beyond the time stipulated by the meter
  6. Outside the periods indicated in your ticket
  7. In a spot reserved for handicapped persons without proper permit
  8. Overnight at the lot

PSU Fines to Avoid

Breaking any of the above listed laws attracts a fine. Some of them are appealable while others are not. Here are the fines below:

ViolationAppeal statusI have a permitI don’t have a permit

You should know that the amount of these fines tend to quadruple during periods of special events involving visitors to the campus. During these times, most of the school's parking lots are put to full use and it's best to be cautious where to park or avoid driving to school altogether.
