A valid Baylor Motorcycle permit is required to park on campus Monday-Friday 7:00 AM- 5:00 PM.

Motorcycle permits allow for parking in regular automobile spaces (Not Reserved) and in specially designated motorcycle spaces. Visit Motorcycle Permits for more information.

Motorcycle permits should be placed near the license plate of the motorcycle. Most are displayed on an 'inspection plate'. Parking services has a limited number of these available at no charge with the purchase of a permit.

Authorization to park in special areas can only be granted by written permission from Parking and Transportation Services.

University Holidays:

Parking regulations are enforced during special events and times such as Diadeloso, Study Days, Finals, Rush, between semesters, etc.

Most permits are virtual with no physical permit/sticker and are tied to the vehicle's license plate. A vehicle's LICENSE PLATE MUST BE CORRECT. JUST 1 NUMBER OR LETTER BEING INCORRECT OR OUT OF PLACE WILL RESULT IN CITATIONS AND TOWING.

Permit owners are responsible for updating their vehicle information if they get a different vehicle, different license plate number or temporarily drive a different vehicle to campus.

Motorcycle permits are NOT transferable and are only good for one specific vehicle. Contact Parking Services if your permit is lost or damaged.

Vehicle Updates:

Students register their vehicle(s) online in their My Parking Account (blue button).  Login with your Bear ID and Password.  Up to 2 vehicles may be entered. 

Temporary or paper ‘dealer’ plates should be used until permanent/metal plates arrive. 

If an existing vehicle receives a new license plate, create a NEW vehicle as the license plate on a vehicle cannot be edited/updated.  Then delete the vehicle with the old plate from your account. 


Regulations and Enforcement




Mopeds and motorcycles are classified as two different types of vehicles.

Parking Services uses a simple determination- the seat of the vehicle to classify it as a moped or motorcycle.

Moped Description



Motorcycle Description



Mopeds are motorized vehicles and will be expected to operate exclusively on vehicle roadways. Mopeds are NOT allowed to operate/drive on sidewalks, grass areas or closed streets on campus. Failure to adhere to these regulations may result in a moving violation.

A valid moped driver's license endorsement is required to operate these vehicles. See the Texas Department of Public Safety for more information:
