Parking Permit Information

Student License Plate Recognition and Information Retention

Salisbury University has moved to license plate recognition in place of physical permits to ensure vehicles are authorized to park on campus.  This will be effective December 2021 and existing physical permits will continue to be valid through August 31, 2022.  Parking Services will begin using mounted cameras to scan license plates as valid permits and issue citations to vehicle without valid University permits.

A parking registration gives you permission to park in your assigned lot but does not guarantee a parking spot.  Permits are valid for the entire academic year.  Permits are not pro-rated if purchased after the academic year has started.

  • Students are only allowed to register one vehicle on a permit.
  • Students cannot share a registration.
  • Registration is available on-line only. The new academic year permits will open May 31, 2022 in a staggered format based on credit hours that students have received credit for on the day of registration.
  • The purchaser is responsible for the accuracy of the license plate information at the time the parking permit is obtained.
  • License plates must face the driving lane to be scanned for compliance. A vehicle may be cited if its plate cannot be scanned.
  • Vehicles with only one license plate are not authorized to back in or pull through spaces and may be cited.
  • Citations issued due to inaccurate plate information or the inability to scan are the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
  • Refunds for permits and waiving of citations will not be done for plates entered inaccurately.
  • Please contact Parking Services for guidance if your vehicle information changes after registering for a permit.

Parking Permit Purchases

New students, upperclassmen, and graduate students will have the opportunity, at the beginning of June, to purchase a parking permit for the upcoming academic year. All parking permits (except Motorcycle permits) must be purchased online. The permit cost will be posted to the student account.

Permits may be purchased through the permit system by accessing the SU Parking Portal (the link below):

Salisbury University Parking Portal

The parking permit could be paid at the time of registration with a credit/debit card (plus the convenience fee) or the charge could be placed on your GullNet student account.  You will only be able to select permit types for which you are eligible during your purchasing timeframe.  Once the allotment of permits is depleted for a particular area/permit type, sales for that permit type will stop and will not be listed as a purchase option.  Once you have completed the online permit registration process, you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

A limited number of parking garage and main campus parking permits will be available. The permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:

Tuesday, May 31, 20228am: Undergraduate students with 90 or more credits, graduate students or graduate assistants. Freshman students (0-29 earned credits) and students interested in evening-only or east campus permits.

New Spring Permits

Spring 2022 admitted students (transfer, Freshmen, and Graduate) will be able to register for parking permits January 4, 2022.  Freshmen will only be able to register for East Campus permits.  Graduate and transfer students may register for Main Campus or Garage permits if they qualify with their credit hours and if the permits are available.  Since there are a limited number of Main Campus and Garage Permits, the option may not be available at the time of registration if those permits are sold out.

Upgrading a Permit

If you purchase and pick up a parking permit during the Fall 2021 semester, you may have the opportunity to upgrade in January 2022 to a different permit. Upgrades will be available for purchase online starting in January, 2022. To upgrade a parking permit, please access the permit system by using this link: https://salisburyparkingpermits.t2hosted.com/Account/Portal

You will only be able to select permit types for which you are eligible. Once the allotment of permits is depleted for a particular area/permit type, sales for that permit type will stop and will not be listed as a purchase option. The difference in price will be placed on your GullNet student account.
