On-Campus Resident Students
On campus resident students including transfer students are eligible to purchase a resident permit. Lot assignments will be based on the number of completed credits as well as housing assignment and availability of spaces in a particular lot. If you are eligible for a particular resident lot but no spaces are available, you may place your name on the waiting list and then purchase a resident permit for the West Village garage resident areas.
Students who live off campus are eligible to purchase a parking permit and will be assigned a parking area based on the number of completed credits. Freshmen Commuters (29 credits or less) are only eligible to purchase an "Overflow" permit that is only valid in the Towson Center lots and designated areas in the West Village garage where all permits are valid. All off campus students are also eligible to purchase an "Evening" parking permit that is only valid after 3 pm as indicated on parking signs.
