Student Parking Guidelines

My Parking Account


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

Vehicles must be parked in areas/spaces that correspond with their permit. Refer to the Student parking map and/or posted signage to determine the parking permit required for each lot. Read more on the student permit options Click Here.

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

After Hours and University Holidays

After 5:00PM Monday-Friday and on University Holidays, students may park in non-reserved parking spaces for students, faculty/staff, or visitors.

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.

License plates (rear or front) must be easily visible to the parking lot aisle/roadway. License plates displayed behind objects (bicycle racks, bumper guards) or on a vehicle dashboard are not acceptable.

Parking permits are transferable from the permit owner's vehicle to another vehicle in their possession. The permit is NOT transferable from person to person.

Shared Permit Use: Student Permits should not be shared between students. Doing so will result in a $300 misuse of permissions citation.

Vehicle Updates

Students register their vehicle(s) online in their My Parking Account (blue button).  Login with your Bear ID and Password.  1 vehicle may be entered. 

To add a different vehicle, remove the existing vehicle then click Add New Vehicle. Enter the new/different vehicle onto your account.

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

Temporary vehicles (including family vehicles or rental vehicles) should be added to My Parking Account and then removed when no longer parking on campus.

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