All permits must be visible from the exterior of the vehicle. Permits are issued to the owner of the vehicle, not the vehicle, meaning the same permit can be used for different vehicles, but only one vehicle at a time. Multiple permits must be purchased to park multiple vehicles on campus at the same time. If the permit is left in another vehicle, at home, in the car at the repair shop or for any other reason is not displayed in the car on campus, the driver must purchase a daily permit. The cost of a daily permit is $5.00.
