Parking is available for faculty and staff by assignment in various locations on campus. Assignments are based on titles, years of service to the University, a space available basis, and payment of the applicable permit fee. Permits are valid from August 1 through July 31. Prorated refunds may be obtained by surrendering the parking permit to the Parking and Transit Services office prior to May 1 of each year. Should a faculty or staff member surrender their parking permit, the faculty or staff member may be subject to forfeiture of their current assignment, wait lists, and other parking restrictions.
All 2014-2015 parking permits will be available for purchase on July 11, 2014 for purchase via the Parking and Transit Services online application process, which can be accessed through the MySlice portal. Permits are required for all campus lots. You will need to know your MySlice NetID and password to purchase a permit. This is the username and password that was established upon admission to Syracuse University. If you do not currently have this information, you can visit Need Login Help? on MySlice for step-by-step instructions to obtain it.
