Commuter Students

Students living in the greater Syracuse area and commuting to Syracuse University should purchase your parking permit through MySlice. All students NOT living in Syracuse University housing are considered commuter students.

Students may purchase a park and ride permit for the Manley South Lot and Skytop parking lots for a nominal fee. There is free shuttle bus service between Manley, Skytop and Main Campus. Please check Campus and Syracuse area bus schedules.

Students may place themselves on the wait lists for these locations, based on established eligibility criteria, beginning at Midnight (12 AM) on September 27, 2021.

Permits are valid in any “Orange” lot (lots with orange signage posted at the entrances) after 4:30 p.m. until 7 a.m. and all day on weekends except during Dome events. Orange lots include, Comstock Ave Garage (when an attendant is present, then garage locks down), Harrison, University Ave South Lot, University Ave North Lot, Irving Ave Hill Lot, Raynor Ave Lot, Henry St. Lot, Standart West Lot, Ostrom, College Place Lot, Women’s Building North, Women’s Building South, Manley North, Manley South and Skytop Lot.

Car Share Program: Zipcar

Syracuse University introduced Zipcar in December 2007. Since then, students, faculty, and staff from the University have taken advantage of this car-sharing program by self-reserving (through online and mobile devices) Zipcars on campus – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
