Please remember if purchasing a permit:

  • If you decide to continue in school for another semester please remember you are not guaranteed a parking permit for your current lot if there is a waiting list currently.

Disability Permits

St. Cloud State University is committed to providing access to campus parking areas in support of individuals with disabilities. It is for this reason that all individuals with a state disability permit who plan to park on campus for the 2015-2016 academic year will need to purchase a SCSU disability permit.  Please go online and follow the procedure for permit application; you will receive a questionnaire from Public Safety which will help us to determine the best parking lot to fit your needs.
