2013-2014 Parking Permits are now available for pre-order!

Students: you may now order your parking permits for the upcoming school year through our online permit application. Permits ordered through the online permit application will be charged to your student account. Permits may be charged to student accounts through Thursday, September 26, 2013. ***Student account charges for parking permits will not be accepted after September 26, 2013***

Faculty and Staff: you may now submit permit application forms for payroll deduction to the Parking Office to reserve your permit for the upcoming school year. 2013-2014 Vehicle Registration Forms are available for download from the Permit Application section of our website, and are also available at the Parking Office and Cashiers Office.

**If you are a Faculty or Staff member currently signed up for auto-renewal and would like to be removed from automatic permit renewal please contact the Parking Office via e-mail at your earliest convenience**

Permits are scheduled to be available for pick-up beginning Monday, September 16, 2013. All pre-ordered permits will be held at the CWU Parking Office for pick-up, with presentation of valid photo identification (CWU ID preferred). We cannot release permits without a valid photo ID. Permits will also be available for regular purchase at both the Parking and Cashiers Offices at this time.


IT IS ILLEGAL TO PURCHASE A CWU PARKING PERMIT FROM SOMEONE ELSE, as it may be stolen or reported lost. This will result in a $250 fine, confiscation of the parking permit, and possible criminal charges/arrest - even if you are unaware of it being stolen or lost. There has been a recent increase in stolen and lost CWU Parking Permits. Permits are NON-TRANSFERABLE. This means that permits cannot be sold or purchased by another individual and must only be purchased from the CWU Parking Office or the Cashier's Office.

If you know someone who is trying to sell a permit or see a permit listed for sale on the internet, please contact our office immediately so that we can address the situation.
