New Permit Holder Information

Faculty, staff, and students who park on campus must display a permit and park in an area authorized by that permit.   Parking zones are strictly regulated to ensure there are spaces available for valid permit holders.

 

Parking Availability

Parking is available on a first come basis for those with a valid permit.  At this time permits are still available for purchase. 

 

Student Parking

FRESHMAN RESIDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO REGISTER THEIR VEHICLES, AND MAY NOT UTILIZE CAMPUS PARKING AREAS.  Special provisions are not made for the perceived need for a parking permit.  It is our experience that employment, family, volunteer, and other needs are present in the entire student body.  There is no equitable manner to determine who has the greatest need.  We will make every possible space available to faculty, staff, and students but are restricted to the number of spaces in our parking areas.

Residential Permits are available to students who reside on campus in one of Tulane's residential halls.  The cost of the permit is $575 for the academic year running September 1 to August 31.  Parking is available to residential students 24/7 in the Diboll Garage.  Other areas are marked in yellow on the parking map.  Please see the parking rules for additional information related to this permit type.

Commuting Permits are available to students who live off campus.  The cost of the permit is $520 for the academic year running September 1 to August 31.  Parking is available in the Diboll Garage, the Claiborne Avenue lot and other areas marked in red and yellow on the parking map.  Please see the parking rules for additional information related to this permit type. 

Parking after 3 pm on campus is available in all zones with your parking permit except Newcomb Circle (24 hour faculty zone) and Cowen Circle (24 hour staff zone).

 

Parking on Move-in Day:

Move-in is a very special time at Tulane when we are welcoming our new students.  There are special permits that area sent out to students from Student Affairs and Housing and Residence Life.  Please check your email for information on move-in day permits.  On move-in day, your permit will get you access to your resident hall building where you will unload your belongings and then proceed to parking in the Diboll Garage or the Claiborne Avenue lot.  
To ensure that we can accommodate unloading zones as well as parking for those with a move-in permit, all others are asked to park off campus that day.  Information is sent out prior to move-in with alternatives.

 

Parking for a student's guests:

Guests are responsible for parking legally by either displaying a valid permit or parking at a paid meter.  All campus parking areas are identified by signage and those signs show the hours of regulation.  Students are responsible for informing their guests of applicable parking regulations and the need for display of a permit or payment of a meter.

Spring Break parking:

The two key things to know about Spring Break Parking are all Normal regulations are still in affect and will be enforced.

1.    If you wish to leave a vehicle on campus during spring Break you must purchase a temporary permit from Parking Services and park in a designated area.  Vehicles not displaying a permit will be cited.
2.    All parking areas and meters will continue to be enforced as usual during the break period.  Vehicles may receive a ticket each day they are illegally parked without a permit.
