Slippery Rock University now uses a license plate recognition system that no longer requires a physical decal to be placed on your windshield. An ePermit is the registration of your license plate, meaning your license plate is now your decal.
Purchasing SRU student/staff ePermits, filing appeals, paying parking citations and managing your parking information can be completed online, or by visiting the Parking Office located at 102 University Union, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is highly recommended to sign up for Parking Alerts by providing your cell phone number when registering your vehicle in the parking ePermit portal. Parking Alerts will provide valuable parking updates via text messages. Parking Alerts are separate from the University’s Campus Alert system. Citations will be emailed to you with a valid email address, or if one has not been provided, the citation will be mailed to you by U.S. Postal Service.
Note: Due to the new license plate recognition system, it is unlawful to back in or pull through any parking space on University property. Your license plate must be visible at all times and will be strictly enforced.
Designated parking areas for resident, commuter, staff and visitor are available. Strict enforcement of designated parking areas will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. No ePermit is required on major holidays (New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas); Monday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. and weekends from 5 p.m. Friday to 7:30 a.m. Monday. During these times, all designated parking lots are considered open to the public. Reserved or assigned spaces are not considered open to the public. Reserved spaces include 15-minute parking (longer than 15 minutes or without flashers), resident coordinator spaces, loading docks, visitor spaces, medical spaces, handicap spaces, spaces by fire hydrants/stand pipes, maintenance parking, on the grass, in roadways, no overnight parking areas or any other reserved spaces, as well as spaces marked “No Parking 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.” (or other time restricted spaces).
All parking including Open Parking at East Lake Parking Lot requires an ePermit during business hours Monday through Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The first section of the East Lake Lot (closest two rows to Stadium Drive and the ARC) is designated as "No Overnight Parking" year round (signs are posted). All “No Overnight parking” is enforced from 2 to 5:30 a.m.
Disability parking is designated for only those vehicles with a valid disability plate or placard issued by any state and displayed on the vehicle properly. Vehicles parked in handicapped parking spaces must display both a disability placard and an ePermit.
