Apply for Purdue C garage parking permits from April 16-18

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University's Parking Facilities will accept applications for C garage parking permits April 16-18.

Students may apply for the permits on a seniority basis according to the following schedule using their current semester classification: Graduate students may apply Tuesday, April 16; seniors and juniors, Wednesday, April 17; and sophomores and freshmen, Thursday, April 18.

There are a limited number of permits available. Once the approximately 2,100 limit has been reached, no more applications will be accepted.

Students will receive a carbon copy receipt when they apply that must be presented between Aug. 1-30, in order to claim their permit. Failure to present the receipt will forfeit the permit, and unclaimed permits will be offered for sale on a first come basis beginning Sept. 3.

Students must meet eligibility requirements to receive the C garage permit. To be eligible, students must live outside a mile and a half boundary as defined in Purdue's parking and traffic regulations. Students must provide a valid driver's license and proof of address to purchase the permit. Additionally, all outstanding fines must be paid in order to receive the C garage permit.

The C garage permit cost is $72 and is valid only in the garage selected at time of application. While C garage permit holders may not park in other parking garages, they may park in any C surface lot space. Students who are unable to secure a C garage permit can purchase a C surface lot permit. C surface permits for the 2002-03 school year will be available for sale beginning Aug. 1.

Additional information about the C garage permit and university parking and traffic regulations can be found on the Web at

C garage permits are sought after because they represent the majority of proximity parking spaces on campus available to students. The high demand for the permits is the reason a pre-enrollment application process is utilized.
