Carpool Permits FAQ's:

  • Who makes up a carpool?  
    • Two to three campus community members who carpool regularly two or more days per week. Each carpool is made up of a carpool lead and at least one rider. Students who are residents of the campus are not eligible for a carpool parking permit nor can they be listed as a rider.
  • Permit procedures:
    • One carpool Virtual Permit will be purchased by the carpool lead. All vehicles used by the carpool must be registered under the primary driver’s permit portal account. Carpool participants must read and fill out the Carpool Application Form
  • Changes in carpool status: 
    • It is mandatory that permanent changes in carpool status be reported to Commuter Services. Changes in status include, but are not limited to changes in carpool members or a change of carpool vehicles.
  • Monitoring: 
    • Commuter Services monitor carpools and may suspend carpool privileges for violation of carpool rules. The success of the carpooling program depends on the integrity of its participants. Commuter Services will protect the anonymity of persons reporting violations of carpool regulations. Any carpool participant found to be in violation of this section will be subject to parking citations with associated fines.

Parking Locations

Carpool parking spaces are located on the second level of the South Garage and the second level of the North Garage.
