Parking Services

All vehicles parking on Salisbury University property (for any amount of time) must have a registered parking permit with Parking Services. Please see below in the Parking Permit Purchases for students and employees. For Visitors, please visit the Visitor & Event Campus Parking section for a free permit.

In December 2021, Parking Services partnered with T2 for our permit and enforcement system. T2 was founded in 1994 with a goal of making parking better. Since then they have aligned with many universities, municipalities, and healthcare facilities to make parking easier and more efficient for all involved. Below is a link to FAQ. We are excited about our new partnership with T2.

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 effective December 2021. Parking Services will be using mounted cameras to scan license plates as valid permits and issue citations to vehicle without valid University permits or to vehicles not parking in the proper parking lots.

Parking is “Plates Out”. When parking on campus, drivers will be required to park with their license plate faces the driving lane so that it can be properly scanned. That means if you have a vehicle with one license plate, the license plate and the back of the vehicle will need to face the parking lane – no backing in or pulling through. This will allow for greater efficiencies in regard to enforcement.

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.
  • Motorcycles and vehicles must be registered on separate permits.
  • Students cannot share a registration.
  • Registration is available on-line only. The new academic year permits will open May 30, 2023 in a staggered format based on credit hours that students have received credit for on the day of registration.
  • When adding vehicle license plate information – do not includes spaces, dashes, or symbols.
  • 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.

Through an interactive process, DRC staff meet with each student individually to discuss their parking request and the likely impact of their disability on their educational experiences at Salisbury University (SU). Parking Services may issue temporary parking privileges without documentation from DRC to students with obvious disabilities (i.e., casts, crutches, or other mobility aids). Parking Services reserves the right to refer students to the DRC if additional information is necessary to determine reasonable accommodations.
