Purchase Semester Permits

General Information

All student parking permits/decals are sold online through our parking permit e-Market sites listed above.  Permits are digital and registered to the vehicle you list when you purchase your permit.  You can only register one vehicle; if you change vehicles, you must log into your Passport account (accessed via one of the links above) and update your vehicle information.  If the vehicle you drive to campus is not the vehicle attached to your permit, you could be subject to citation. 

On-campus housing residents, do NOT purchase a general parking permit as they are not valid for overnight parking.  Residents of University Village are also not eligible to purchase general parking permits and must find alternate forms of transportation to and from campus.

Parking is extremely limited and the purchase of a permit does not guarantee you a parking location; therefore, we highly encourage those who live within a mile of campus to leave vehicles at home and find alternate forms of transportation.  For additional information regarding alternate forms of transportation, please visit the Parking Services website(opens in new window).

On-Campus Housing (B) & University Village (UV) Parking Permits

On-campus housing residents and University Village residents can ONLY purchase on-campus housing parking permits (B) or University Village (UV) permits as appropriate.  Do NOT purchase a general (G) parking permit as you cannot park your vehicle on campus property overnight or you will be subject to citation.  If we are sold out of either permit you will need to find off-campus parking alternatives.  University Village (UV) residents may NOT purchase a general (G) parking permit, nor are the UV parking permits valid in any of the campus parking lots.

Fall Semester On-Campus Housing/University Village Parking Permits - Parking permits for on-campus housing and University Village residents are initially distributed on a lottery basis, which typically runs during the month of July; contact the Housing Office for exact dates.  All students who have a bed assignment in any residential hall are eligible to enter the lottery; contact the Housing Office if you are unsure about your eligibility.  Information regarding the lottery is sent by the Housing Office to the students via their Wildcat e-mail .  Lottery "winners" will be notified via e-mail with the e-Market link and instructions on how to purchase their permit.  All permits not purchased by the expiration date will be released and made available for purchase by all other on-campus housing residents beginning at 9:00 am on the Tuesday following the priority period.  Do NOT submit your application prior to 9:00 am or your application will not be considered.

Spring Semester On-Campus Housing/University Village Parking Permits – Students who purchased on-campus housing parking permits in the fall semester are given first priority to purchase an on-campus housing parking permit for the spring semester.  In December, the Housing Office will send fall permit purchasers an e-mail with instructions for buying their spring parking permit.  All permits not claimed by this group will be available for purchase by other on-campus housing residents beginning at 9:00 am on the Tuesday following the priority period. Do NOT submit your application prior to 9:00 am or your application will not be considered.

Faculty Staff Parking Permits

F/S and reserved permits are sold via payroll deduction.  Payroll deduction form for State-side employees is available in the Cashiering Office.  Associated Students and Chico State Enterprises employees must pick up form in their Human Resources Office and bring completed/signed form to Cashiering. 

If you are interested in a reserved permit, please email Suzy Buck(opens in new window) in the Cashiering Office for more information or to be put on the waiting list.
