All Faculty (including Adjuncts), Staff, and Students who park at EMU during normal business hours (Monday – Friday 8AM to 5PM) need to purchase a $60 parking permit to park in parking lots reserved for Faculty, Staff, Commuters or Residents. Faculty (including Adjuncts) and Staff may request a “free” parking permit. This permit is only valid in the North University Commons parking lot, North of the green line — the three North most rows next to Dogwood Drive.

ADCP and Graduate programs that meet in the evening need to register their vehicles at the beginning of each academic school year. These evening only students will receive a “Commuter” parking permit at no charge.

Evening program departments will have students complete the vehicle registration forms and submit to the Physical Plant Office with a note stating the ADCP cohort number or the Graduate program name.

Vehicle registration and charges also applies to individuals living in EMU-owned housing or apartments.

Registration must occur within one week of bringing a vehicle to campus. Vehicles can be registered at the Physical Plant office Monday-Friday during normal office hours 8AM to 5PM.

Only vehicles which have been registered and are displaying the correct parking permit will be authorized to park in university parking areas from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Retired employees of EMU who routinely use the premises must register their vehicle with physical plant, but will not be charged a parking fee.

Campus visitors not on campus for organized sporting events and major activities are asked to register their vehicles and utilize a temporary permit, available at the physical plant office, admissions office, or information office.

How to register your vehicle

Vehicle registration is part of registration for EMU classes, so students will have several opportunities to ensure their vehicle is in the parking system. Students can also register their vehicles at the Physical Plant Office during normal office hours.

Faculty and Staff: Registration and payroll deduction forms are available for all faculty and staff at my.emu.edu after login.

It’s important to register promptly: ticketing will begin seven (7) days after fall classes begin.

Faculty and staff may opt out

Faculty and staff may opt out of this fee by registering for a “fee free” parking permit. This parking permit is valid only in the University Commons, north parking lot, North of the green line — the three north most rows next to Dogwood Drive. It is NOT valid in ANY other faculty/staff (F/S) designated parking area.

Faculty and staff ticketed for an unregistered vehicle will only have the fine waived by purchasing a $60 parking permit.

Temporary handicapped parking permits

Temporary handicap parking permits may be issued to students upon confirmation from the Health Center or athletic trainer that confirms a student’s warranted need for a handicap space. These permits are to be used only on EMU property and are not acceptable under state law to be used off campus. They are available from the physical plant during regular business hours.

Partial-year permits

If you, as faculty, staff or student, will not be on campus for spring semester, your parking permit may be returned to the Physical Plant Office for a refund of $30. The return will show up as a credit on your account.
