Regular parkers are required to obtain a parking permit and display a college issued decal in the rearmost drivers side window of their vehicle.  All parking spaces are first come, first serve, unless otherwise signed or reserved. There is no charge for permits for students, staff, faculty, and visitors.  Because of limited parking space, we encourage Alternative means of commuting
