Parking Permits

Basic Permit Information

  • You must have a paid Chico State permit to park in campus parking lots
  • All student parking permits are sold online
  • Parking permits are digital so there is nothing to pick up or display
  • Enforcement is done by license plate so make sure you enter your information carefully
  • You can only register one vehicle at a time; if you change vehicles, you must update your vehicle information through your parking permit account - failure to do so could result in receiving a citation
  • No overnight parking allowed, with the exception of on-campus housing and University Village residents with paid permits and in approved parking lots 
  • Parking is extremely limited and the purchase of a permit does not guarantee you a parking location, therefore we encourage alternate forms of transportation

Permit Regulations and Lots
