Permit Information

All SDSU parking facilities, except pay-to-park lots and spaces, require a parking permit between the hours of 7:00am- 4:00pm, Mon- Fri. Individuals may park without permits from 4:00pm -2:00am, Mon- Fri and all day Sat and Sun except from 2:00am -5:00am. There is NO parking on campus in any non-residential lot from 2:00am- 5:00am.

Accessibility stalls, loading/unloading zones, signed Service Vehicle stalls, and 20 minutes stalls are enforced all day, every day.

Parking permits are the property of South Dakota State University and are issued to a specific individual. Ownership is not transferable. By obtaining a parking permit, the permit holder agrees to become familiar with and abide by the Parking Rules and Regulations.

The fees paid for permits are registration fees and do not reserve or guarantee a parking stall in specific parking lots. Reserved permits are sold on a 1:1 ratio and therefore do guarantee a parking stall. Lack of a parking space is not considered a valid excuse for violation of parking regulations.
