Who is eligible for online registration? Faculty, staff, students, contractors, service providers, vendors, and visitors are eligible for web-based parking permit registration. See Registration Dates.
Why am I receiving parking registration emails from Transportation Services when I have yet to receive an acceptance letter from the university or have not yet decided to attend A&M? Parking registration emails are sent to all undergraduate applicants. The emails are not an indication of acceptance to the university. If you no longer want to receive the emails, click the link in the email to remove your name from the mailing list.
Am I required to register via the web? All faculty, staff, students, contractors, service providers, vendors, and visitors who would like to register for a new permit or renew their current permit should do so online. Students must have applied to the University and have activated their NetID. Faculty and staff may contact their Departmental Parking Representative for assistance in registering.
What do I do if I am not eligible? Individuals who have accounts with outstanding balances will be prevented from purchasing a permit until the balance is cleared. There are no customer groups who are ineligible to purchase a parking permit.
Can I register for a Motorcycle permit online? There is no need to pre-register for a Motorcycle permit. Motorcycle permits may be purchased online beginning August 1. If you want a Motorcycle permit in addition to a lot permit, request a half-price Motorcycle permit during registration or come into Koldus 108 after you receive your new year permit. There is no wait list and we do not sell out of Motorcycle permits.
Can I register for a Night permit online? There is no need to pre-register for a Night permit. Night permits may be purchased online beginning August 1. There is no wait list and we do not sell out of Night permits.
Who is eligible for disabled persons permits? TAMU does not issue disabled parking permits. Customers may take medical certification of disability to the tax office in their county to request a disabled parking permit or license plate.

Customers who have a valid county-issued disabled permit or license plate (including disabled veteran license plates) may park in any designated disabled parking space or any other non-restricted parking space, with a valid disabled permit/license plate and a valid TAMU parking permit. Both permits must be displayed to be authorized to park.

Disabled customers who do not have a valid TAMU parking permit but do have a valid county-issued disabled permit or license plate displayed may pay to park in any of our visitor parking facilities and make use of designated disabled parking spaces or other non-restricted parking spaces within the visitor facility.

The ONLY person authorized to park within the guidelines of the disabled policy detailed above is the person to whom the disabled parking permit/license plate is issued.
I will be enrolled for an out-of-town internship or co-op program next semester and will not need a parking permit until the internship is complete. What should I do? When you return to TAMU, email and request a parking permit. After verifying your enrollment in a university-affiliated co-op/internship the previous semester, you will be assigned parking according to your classification and your parking preferences.
