Parking Permits

The College of Idaho requires all student and employee vehicles to display a valid parking permit when on campus. Parking permits are available online and can be paid via credit card or in-person payment to Campus Safety.

Student Parking

Planning on bringing a vehicle with you to campus? You'll need to purchase a student parking permit. Residential permits for parking in a campus housing lot are $105 per year. General permits are $80 and allow you to park in any of the general lots. 

Student permits are issued within one month of the school year starting and are valid for the year. Priority is given to upperclassmen and then to those who submitted their applications first. Once you receive your parking permit place it on the back window of your vehicle. If you need to bring a different vehicle, or your permit becomes damaged or lost, please contact Campus Safety prior to parking on campus.

Parking fines are issued to those who fail to purchase a permit, violate fire lane restrictions or park in handicap spaces without the appropriate state-issued placard or license plates. You are not allowed to register for classes until any outstanding fines are paid. Fines are $25 dollars for most violations and $100 for parking in a handicap-accessible space.

Employee Parking

Employees must register for a permit online but do not have to pay for a permit. Employee permits are valid for general lots only and may not be used in residential lots. Employee permits are issued within one month of the school year starting and are valid for two years. Once you receive your parking permit place it on the back window of your vehicle. If you need to bring a different vehicle, or your permit becomes damaged or lost, please contact Campus Safety prior to parking on campus.

Parking fines are issued to those who fail to register for a permit, violate fire lane restrictions or park in handicap spaces without the appropriate state-issued placard or license plates. Fines are $25 for most violations and $100 for parking in a handicap-accessible space.
