Contractors and vendors can request to purchase a temporary permit via an online form, or in person at the transit center located int he Student Union Building. Two permit types are available and they offer different amounts of access to parking locations. Contractor permits are less expensive, but are limited to one location on campus. Vendor permits cost more, but provide full campus access. Either permit can be purchased for a monthly or annual rate depending on the time frame of the project.
