The Department of Public Safety Traffic Control Office will issue parking permits for a fee of $155.00 to authorized individuals. Parking permits will be issued in the Campus Recreation Center during the first week of school.

A Parking Permit will be obtained upon completion of a web-based parking permit application. Undergraduate students will be limited to one active permit. Parking permits must be renewed on a yearly basis.

Resident freshman students are not authorized to have or operate vehicles on campus at anytime. All first year students are considered freshman regardless of academic standing.

Applicants For Permits

Persons applying for a parking permit must have a valid driver's license. The vehicle for which a permit application is submitted must have a valid registration, liability insurance, and a current safety inspection sticker, as required by the state in which the vehicle is registered.

A university official may request verification/inspection of these documents at any time. A valid photo ID and vehicle registration must be provided in order to pick up a permit. Permits are unique to each vehicle and are therefore non-transferable.

New for the 2013-2014 Academic Year beginning August 1 you can choose a PERMIT DIRECT permit to be shipped directly to your home. See the procedure below.

To All Faculty & Staff

Our web application process is available via the internet at: http://rwu.t2hosted.com/

All faculty and staff are required to have a valid permit attached permanently to the outside lower left corner of the windshield (driver’s side). Faculty and staff are not limited to one permit and may apply for additional vehicles if needed. If you are replacing a windshield or replacing a car on file with a new car (same license plate), please notify the parking and transportation office at extension x3703 or email to parking@rwu.edu before you apply for a new permit. After invalidating your old permit, you will be allowed to apply for another permit.
