Sample Vehicle Registration Card




 Q: I want to park a car on campus. What do I need to do? The most convenient way is to log in to My Parking Account. If you are a visitor to campus (including a visiting student from the MetroCenter), stop at the Conrad Welcome Center (corners of New Campus and Commencement Drives) to purchase a permit. Daily fee is $5; exceptions include parents of enrolled students. Visitors may also park and pay at a meter. Meters require payment until 7 pm, Monday - Thursday, and until 5 pm on Fridays. There is also a pay station located in Lot V that allows you to park in lots T, V, or V1 during the day or lots V1 or X overnight. 

Q: Where can I get a parking permit if the Conrad Welcome Center is closed? Visitors who arrive on campus after 5:30 pm may choose to park and pay at a meter until 7 pm. No permit is required Monday - Thursday 7 pm - 2 am. A pay station located in Lot V provides parking credentials for lots T, V, and V1 during the day and V1 and X overnight. If further assistance is needed after hours, visit University Police in Lathrop Hall.

Q: Where can I park with the permit/pass? Visitors may park in any lot with the proper permit or at a meter with the appropriate fee paid. Exceptions are lots A, C, and Y.  Students are required to park in designated lots with color-coded signs that correspond to the color of their permit.

Q: I received a parking citation.  What can I do about it? There is an appeals program in place. Use My Parking Account to appeal your citation. Visitors may download an Appeals Form.

Q: I have a permit and want to park at a meter. Do I have to feed the meter? Yes. Meters are enforced until 7 pm Monday-Thursday, and until 5 pm on Fridays. Meters are enforced during holidays, campus breaks, winter session and summer! Overnight parking is not allowed at a meter.

Q: I am parked far from my residence hall. Is there an escort service available? Yes, University Police will provide a walking escort. Call 395-SAFE or use a blue light phone.

Q: Why didn't I receive a citation on my car? Citations are placed under the vehicle wiper. Perhaps you didn't see it, a passerby removed it, or the driver (if car was borrowed) did not report it to you.

Q: I am driving a different car to campus. What do I need to do? Use My Parking Account to add a vehicle plate number to your account or call 395-PARK to let us know the plate number. You may transfer the hangtag to another car as long as the car you are registering is not driven by or registered to another student, employee, or affiliate of the College. If you forgot the hangtag, stop by the drive-up window at the Conrad Welcome Center to obtain a temporary pass for the day. You may obtain two temporary passes a year without a fee. Employees represented by a collective bargaining unit may purchase a second permit for $5. 

Q: I have to load/unload items from my car. Where can I park? Some areas have a space with a sign indicating it is for loading/unloading purposes. You are allowed to park in these areas for up to 15 minutes with your flashers on. You may always park and pay at a meter.

Q: I have a handicapped pass. Do I still need a campus permit to park? Yes. All vehicles need a parking permit. With both the handicapped permit and parking permit displayed, you may park in any lot regardless of designation. Always refrain from parking in metered spaces without proper payment, and service and reserved spaces.

Q: I am a commuter and I cannot find a parking space. Where can I park? Almost always there are spaces available in Lots V, V1, and X. Don't wait in line. Save time and check out that area.

Q: My car won't start. Who can I call? Call us at 395-PARK. We offer a free Motorist Assistance Program (MAP) to on-campus motorists. This program provides jumpstarts, lock de-icers, lock assistance, tire inflation, and gas transportation during our normal business hours.

Q: I am a MetroCenter student and would like to visit the Brockport campus. What do I need to do? You may either stop at the Conrad Welcome Center and purchase a daily pass for $5 or park and pay at a meter.


Visitor FAQ's

Q: I am a visitor and want to spend the night. Where can I park? With the proper visitor pass, you may park in Lot V1 or Lot X.

Q: Where can I get a visitor pass if the Conrad Welcome Center is closed? Visitors who arrive on campus after 5:30 pm (when the Conrad Welcome Center closes) may choose to park and pay at a meter until 7 pm.
