Student Parking Permit Registration for 2021-22 Now Open! 

April 19, 2021 - Online registration for student parking permits is open! Students must register for classes before they can register for a parking permit.

Permits are assigned on a "first-come, first-served" basis based upon time of registration, with no advantage by class standing (i.e. Senior, Junior, Sophomore, Freshman). Permits are zone-based, consisting of many lots (either residential or commuter), not one specific parking lot. Parking permits are now assigned to your license plate, meaning there is no physical permit to pick up or place on your vehicle! See permit registration and parking zones for more information. 

Contact parking@uncw.edu with any questions!
