  • Active Penn State ID and Access account
  • License plate(s) information (vehicles must be owned by the student or a member of the student’s immediate family)
  • Completed at least 29.1 credits, except for commuter and graduate students

General registration

Upon completion of the registration, students print a temporary permit to display on their dashboard for immediate parking. Permanent permits will be mailed to the student’s local or campus address. To ensure prompt and accurate delivery, students must enter the complete address, including the street number and apartment number. Failure to notify the State College Post Office of a new off-campus address before registering for a permit may prevent permit delivery.

With a large volume of traffic expected on the Transportation Services website at the start of the registration period, any students encountering issues are urged to avoid double clicking or using the back button, as these actions may result in errors with your transaction. If issues arise while attempting to complete the registration, please exit the site and contact Transportation Services for assistance.

Enterprise CarShare and Zimride

Before deciding to bring a vehicle to campus, students are encouraged to explore the University’s alternative transportation options. Enterprise CarShare provides on-campus vehicles available for rent by the hour or day, while Zimride is a private Penn State network that matches those looking for a ride with those willing to share theirs.
