Spring 2024 Permit Information

Parking Services has been monitoring the usage of the parking lots on a daily basis to determine where there is open and available space.  Permits are being awarded from the waitlist and additional permits for select lots are being made available for sale on a regular basis based on where there is open space.  Please click on the “purchase student permit online” button on the left side of this page to check availability.

Due to the high demand for parking, permits for most preferred lots near the core of campus sell out quickly.  However, there are always permits available.  If your first or second choice is not available we still recommend that you purchase a permit from one of the other available permit choices. 

Waitlists - If the permit that you want to purchase is sold out, you may be given the option to join a waitlist for the permit. Waitlists are only offered for select permits.  If you already purchased a permit you will be required to exchange the permit if the waitlisted permit becomes available to you.  Joining a waitlist does not guarantee that you will be able to purchase the permit you wanted, however it does put you in a queue should the permit become available.  Parking Services will begin awarding from the waitlist as soon as space becomes available, usually starting within the first two weeks of the start of the semester. You will be notified through your Kent State email account with the details and deadline for purchasing or exchanging your permit if a permit from the waitlist becomes available.
