Parking information for students residing on-campus

Parking overview

Although The University of Scranton is an urban campus with limited parking, sufficient parking spaces are available to meet demand on a daily basis.  Parking Regulations are necessary for the safety and convenience of the entire University community and are designed to allow maximum use of our available parking spaces.
Parking regulations apply on the streets, roads, alleys, sidewalks, walkways, parking spaces, parking areas and parking lots on the entire campus of The University of Scranton Campus. University parking rules, regulations and enforcement are in effect all year, including periods when classes are not in session.
When additional events, such as conferences, seminars or workshops are conducted on campus, parking capacity may be exceeded. The fact that parking capacity appears to be or is exceeded does not authorize a user to violate this parking policy. In addition, the purchase of a parking pass does not  guarantee a convenient parking space. Parking spaces may only be available off the center of campus.
The Parking Services goal is to serve the University community with fairness, courtesy and efficiency. Any parking-related problems, complaints, suggestions or compliments should be referred to the Parking Services Manager, Parking, 820 Mulberry Street. The office is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 
Student Registration
  • Students must provide a valid state motor vehicle registration the first time they complete a permit application. A copy of the state motor vehicle registration will be required in subsequent years if the vehicle or license plate information has changed. The permit is valid from the date of purchase to the expiration date printed on the permit. Fees are not refundable.
  • First-year Resident Students and Sophomore Resident Students are not permitted to bring a vehicle to The University of Scranton or within the City of Scranton limits.
  • Resident Students other than first-year students and sophomores living in University residences may purchase a resident student permit. Resident student permits are only valid in lots designated for Resident Permits. View Campus Parking Map 
  • Lots designated for Resident Students have signs marked “R” and are for Resident permits only. Resident students with valid permits may park their vehicles in the parking pavilion or under the Wellness Center when there is a parking ban put in effect. Once the ban is placed in effect vehicles with valid permits can be parked in non-reserved spaces in the pavilion without being ticketed. Vehicles parked in surface lots when a parking snow ban is in effect are subject to ticketing.
  • Students living in private non-University housing in the area of The University of Scranton, which includes north to Gibson St., south to Ridge Row, east to Harrison Ave. and west to Mifflin Ave., are not permitted to purchase a University parking permit.
Resident Student permit fees are $200 and are valid for the academic year. Spring Session permit fees are $100. Summer session permit fees are $20.00 per session. Parking permit fees are non-refundable.
Parking Permits can be purchased online from the Parking Services Portal. For more information about applying for a university parking permit, go to Parking Services, on the home page of the my.Scranton portal.
