Parking & Transportation Information

All motor vehicles, except those parked at short-term parking meters, are required to have a valid parking permit on their parking account if they will be parked on campus from 6 a.m.–8 p.m., Monday–Thursday, and from 6 a.m.–3 p.m. on Fridays. A License Plate Recognition (LPR) system is used for parking enforcement. This system reads license plates and verifies there is a valid permit associated with that plate. As such all permit holders must ensure they have their accurate and complete license plate(s) registered with the department. Vehicles in violation of the regulations will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s expense. Both resident (30 completed credits or more) and commuter students may purchase a parking permit online through eParking. Commuter students have the option of purchasing a permit to park on campus during the daytime or a permit that is only valid during the evening after 3 p.m. Resident (30 completed credits or more) are eligible to purchase a resident permit based on availability. Students purchasing a parking permit must park in those areas designated by their specific permit type and time restrictions. For information regarding permit rates, purchasing options and parking restrictions, please visit our website.

Visitors to campus are required to purchase an hourly or one-day Visitors’ Parking Permit from a pay station at a designated visitor location or through the pay by phone app. Those visitors participating in official University Admissions tours are excluded from this requirement but must display the permit distributed by admissions staff and be parked in Visitor Spaces on the ground floor of the West Village garage located off Towsontown Boulevard. For more information regarding the pay by phone app, please visit our website.

TU provides both on-campus and off-campus shuttles to transport students, faculty and staff to various locations throughout and near the campus. TU shuttles only operate during the regular academic terms for the regular route schedule when the campus is open. Campus shuttles operate an abbreviated schedule during the winter and summer only when classes are in session. There is no fee to ride any shuttle; however, a valid TU OneCard ID must be presented to ride off-campus shuttles. To view the shuttle schedules and routes or to obtain more information, please visit TUTIGERRIDE.com.
