Off-Campus Resident Parking Permit  - CURRENTLY CLOSED/SOLD OUT

Residential students who have not registered their vehicles for parking on campus properties, please CLICK HERE to be added to the waitlist.

This program is designed for students who do not anticipate utilizing their vehicles very often during the week or for students taking advantage of alternative modes of transportation while living on-campus. Selecting this parking permit allows resident students secured off-campus parking and the ability to access the vehicle when needed. More importantly, this program guarantees a parking space is always available to you.

NOTE: This limited-time option is an alternative to the “Red” residential permit and cannot be purchased in combination with one another.

To participate in this program, Residential Students must park off-campus at the Rinker Athletic Complex (3401 Parker Ave, West Palm Beach, FL 33405) during the week, Monday through Friday. A shuttle service will be available to all students that runs every 30 minutes from 2 pm-10 pm every day.  Request for transportation outside of these hours will be by request 24/7 and subject to Department of Public Safety availability.  

It is important to note that the Resident Off-Campus decal prohibits the student from parking on-campus during the hours of 6 AM - 6 PM Monday through Friday. Any student found parking on campus during prohibited hours may be removed from the program and on-campus parking privileges suspended. Parking violations will be subject to parking citations and vehicle immobilization.
