DePaul will no longer issue physical parking "hang tags" for students. Instead, your license plate will serve as your campus-parking permit. You must have your student ID or an access card to swipe in and out of the garages. Please make sure your vehicle is registered with the correct information prior to parking on campus.

2021/2022 Permit Cost: The cost of DePaul's Student 24-Hour Parking Permit will be $495 for the 2021/2022 academic year. A new, quarterly payment method for students is being offered for this permit ONLY. The permit will be available for payment between four quarters. If you decide to utilize this method, there will be no refunds or proration available.

This permit allows students 24-hour access to student surface-parking lots, as well as to both of our parking structures (Sheffield & Clifton) on campus.

We continue to offer the Student 24-Hour Clifton Deck Only Permit to the FIRST 150 student applicants at $390. This permit does not include parking access to Sheffield Deck or the student surface-parking lots.

Reserved Sanctuary spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis for $760.

Evening & Weekend: Clifton-Only permits are available for $135. This permit is valid for use in student surface-parking lots and the Clifton Garage from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. (M-F) and all day on weekends.

A limited number of parking permits for the School of Music garage are being offered for $390. This permit also allows access to student surface-parking lots. Parking in the School of Music garage is permitted during regular School of Music business hours only (typically 7:00 a.m. -midnight every day). Overnight parking in this garage is not allowed.

Purchase your parking permit online via Campus Connect by selecting Navigator from the NavBar (the diamond in the upper right-hand corner). Then go to Self Service > University Services > Parking Permits Online. Additionally, ALL free STUDENT Evening & Weekend permits must be obtained through this online application.

The sale of all permits for the coming academic year begins Thursday, July 1.

Parking Services does not control parking at the Loop Campus. However, nearby parking facilities offer a reduced rate for DePaul students. Please visit Procurement Services' Demon Discounts website for a current list of participating parking facilities.
