Parking Permits

Any individual who parks a vehicle on the main campus of Colorado State University must display a valid permit on the vehicle or pay a meter. All regular and special parking permits are issued by Parking Services upon verification of eligibility. Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space. Parking for permit holders is on a first come, first served basis. Possession of a permit allows parking on campus in a designated area but does not guarantee that a space will be available.
