How do I get a parking permit?
All students and employees who park on campus must login to their Parking Account online at www.savannahstate.edu/permit to purchase a permit (regardless of method of payment).
Where can I park?
Parking lots are designated for each of the seven parking categories (Commuter, Contractor/Vendor, Faculty/Staff, Reserved, Resident, Retiree, Stadium Discount). Parking is restricted to the designated lots from 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m on class days during Fall and Spring semesters.
Parking will be available for commuter students, faculty/staff, contractor/vendor employees, and visitors at the stadium for a discount fee during restricted hours (7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday on class days). In order to park at the stadium, your permit designation must indicate the Stadium "Discount" lot. Shuttle bus service will be provided to the visitor's side of the stadium from 7:45 a.m. - 7:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 7:45 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. Friday; no service Saturday or Sunday. You may move your vehicle into a non-residential lot on campus after parking restrictions end at 4:00 p.m., as long as you do not park in any marked space (reserved, visitor, handicapped, etc.). You may be asked to move your vehicle for events at the stadium.
Resident students: During restricted hours, resident students in University Commons and University Village must park in their assigned lots. Students with a valid General Resident permit may park in any of the other residential lots (other than University Commons, University Village, or Tiger Court/Wright Hall), or in the General Residential Parking spaces on the Alexis Circle or in the Hubert Tech parking lot. After restricted hours, resident students may park in any lot on campus, as long as it is not in a reserved or otherwise designated space (ADA/handicap, service vehicles, etc.), except for the Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking lot, which requires a Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking permit at all times (24/7). Students with a Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking permit may park in any General Residential space if the lot is full.
Resident students may not purchase a Stadium Discount permit. We encourage you to purchase your permit as soon as possible for 2017-18, since parking lots will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Permits for parking in Tiger Court/Wright Hall lot are limited to the number of spaces in the lot.
Commuter Students: you may park in any lot designated for commuter students during restricted hours. After 4:00 pm., you may park in any non-residential space that is not reserved.
Faculty and staff: If you have a faculty/staff permit, you may park in any lot designated for faculty and staff, as long as you do not park in a space specifically designated for students within those lots. If you have a reserved space, you may park in any other legal spot on campus that is not another reserved spot.
How is parking enforced?
