Where to Buy a Semester or Annual Parking Permit
Newly hired employees must purchase a semester and annual parking permit on a "walk in" basis either at CSUN Parking Office, located in the Police Services Building at the corner of Darby Avenue and Prairie Street, or University Cash Services located in Bayramian Hall. Employees must present both an employee photo ID (with a valid ID number) and a current semester sticker issued by their department or Human Resources. Without this information, parking permits will not be issued.
Eligible employees may enroll in a monthly payroll deduction after purchasing the first month at University Cash Services. You must be a full-time permanent employee and receive 12 paychecks a year. (To cancel your payroll deduction, please return the original parking permit to University Cash Services (UCS). UCS will then notify Sacramento to remove the monthly deduction amount from your pay warrant.)
The online permit option is not currently available for Faculty/Staff. If you are a returning employee, you do have the option of mailing in a request for a parking permit to be mailed to you. The parking permit application and instructions are available on the University Cash Services website.
