Full-Time Day Students
A discounted "Flex Parking Lease" is available to students enrolled in six or more weekday credits. Students may purchase a parking card for the 3rd street ramp and will be billed directly from Lanier Parking (not the University). Proof of enrollment will be required to purchase and activate the card; cards may be deactivated at the student’s request. Semester payment will be made directly to Lanier Parking at the time of purchase.
Flex parking includes some restricted days during the year when students will need to find alternate parking places (such as Park and Ride Lots, etc.). Full details are available by contacting Lanier Parking. Lease holders will be notified of such dates at least two days in advance.
To purchase your parking card and for information on rates, please visit the Lanier Parking Office in the Center Street Ramp. You will also need to bring:
- An enrollment verification form showing the number of credits you are taking (see instructions below to access form);
- Your Student ID;
- Check, cash, or credit card to pay for parking. The parking fee is $380 per semester, which includes a $20 setup fee.
- Your license number.
