Online Registration: Customers should log in using their VU Net ID and password. You should verify all the pre-filled information and make changes as necessary. If the fields are not pre-filled, you will need to complete the missing data.

Permit Rates: Rates have been set at $444 for the 2013-2014 school year. There will be a replacement cost of $60 if permits are lost and need to be replaced. All students are encouraged to use their student accounts as an alternative to using a credit or debit card.

Sophomore Parking: Parking on campus is a privilege and is primarily reserved for Upperclassmen (Juniors and Seniors). However, a limited number of parking spaces are available to Sophomores on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once these spaces are sold out, a waiting list is created in the event a space becomes available. If absolutely necessary, we do offer Reserved parking to Sophomores as an exception, but we encourage all students to wait until they become Juniors to bring vehicles on campus.

Reserved Parking : Students will be able to register online for reserved parking in Wesley Place, Terrace Place, and the Kensington Avenue Garage. The parking rate for a reserved space is $1,248 per academic year. It will be charged in total at the beginning of the year and can be paid through the student’s account or credit card.

All reserved spaces are FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED.

Greek Permits: A regular University permit is required in order to obtain a Greek permit. If you are eligible for a Greek permit, you must first purchase your regular permit. You will then be able to “Add Permit” prior to completing the purchase and the Greek permit will be available for you to order at no additional cost.

Permit Delivery : Students are strongly encouraged to use their campus address to ensure the timely delivery of parking permits. Please be aware that the address you submit during registration is where your permit will be sent. A delivery time of approximately one week is estimated.

All students ordering a permit should print out a temporary permit while ordering and place it on their vehicle when they return to campus until their permit arrives. If you do not receive your permit within one week of purchase, contact the parking office. All vehicles parked in campus parking areas must have a valid permit. Permits will be strictly enforced.

Alternative Transportation: Vanderbilt continues its popular Zipcar and Enterprise CarShare (formerly WeCar) programs, which allow students to rent a car by the hour or by the day. For more information visit:

If you have not received your permit or if it is not in your campus mail box when you return to campus, please contact the office of Parking Services and we will assist you in obtaining a temporary permit.

Thank you.
