Since parking permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis according to class standing, they sell out quickly during online permit sales. 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 decide to join the waitlist, we still recommend that you purchase a permit from one of the other available permit choices. You must 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.

If a permit from the waitlist becomes available and you are granted the right to purchase it, you will be notified through your Kent State email account with the details and deadline for purchasing or exchanging your permit.
