There has been a recent increase in stolen and lost CWU Parking Permits. Permits are NON-TRANSFERABLE. Permits cannot be sold or purchased by another individual, they can only be purchased from the CWU Parking Office or the Cashier's Office.

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.

If you know someone who is trying to sell a permit or see a permit listed for sale on the internet, please report this to our office immediately.
