Vehicle Registration and Parking

The motor vehicle registration and parking program at the University of Sioux Falls is designed to provide parking areas for faculty, staff, students and guests with the following criteria:

Guest parking permits are available to those visiting the University's campus.

The University apologizes for ticketing guests visiting our campus and encourages you to bring the ticket to the department you visited or the Campus Security Office.

Vehicle Registration

Faculty, staff and students must register all motor vehicles intended to be parked on campus, and parking permits must be displayed at all times per the directions on the permit. There is no parking fee for students, faculty and staff to park on campus; however, replacement permits are $25 per permit. Faculty, staff and student vehicles parked in areas not designated for them to park may be ticketed and, in some cases, towed at the owner's expense.

HOW DO I REGISTER MY VEHICLE?

Visit MyUSF and search "parking" to find the links to manage your vehicles and view/request parking permits.

Vehicles should be parked in University parking lots marked with signs indicating colors (purple or silver) corresponding to the color of the permit they are assigned. All vehicles not parking in the appropriate parking lot/space, not registered or properly displaying a current parking permit, as explained on the back of the permit, or violating parking policies in any way may be ticketed or towed at the owner's expense.

Parking tickets will be delivered by email, or paper notification on vehicle.  Parking violations will vary between $25.00 - $100.00 depending on the violation. Failure to pay parking tickets may result in additional charges. Misuse of visitor parking permits or special student or guest parking permits by University employees may also result in tickets or other fines.
