parked in an EV charging space beyond the two-hour maximum time limit are subject

Register your Bike
Kennesaw State University Department of Public Safety & University Police
Do you ride a bike on campus? If so, we welcome you to please register your wheels with the BAT Program. Ride your bike over to the KSU Police Department during business hours and get an ID sticker for your bike. It costs you nothing and is a big help in helping recover stolen bikes.

How to Obtain a Carpooling Permit
Carpooling makes sense for students who have coordinated their schedules to be here during the similar hours of the day. A Carpool decal will allow you to park in preferred “Carpool Only” parking spaces in Lot A and Lot D on the Kennesaw Campus. Carpool spaces are located in Lot A, Lot D, Lot J, Cartersville Drive, East Parking Deck, and West Parking Deck . There is no carpooling on the Marietta Campus.
Where do I sign - up?
Student Carpool Program permits must be obtained in person at Card Services (located on the 2nd floor of the Student Center at the top of the stairs)
How does it work?
Each member of the carpool group will be asked to sign a list and Card Services personnel will then connect the carpool decal to the parking decal number of each member of the group who has also purchased parking. Those who will be passengers only may opt out of parking and will not pay the $26 parking fee.
There is only one carpool decal per group, but unlike a student’s parking decal which must remain on the student’s car; the carpool decal may be transferred back and forth to the car of any member of the carpool group. This way, if “Student A” drives the carpool group on Monday/Wednesdays, and “Student B” drives the carpool group on Tuesdays/Thursdays, they are able to share the carpool decal by transferring it from car “A” to car “B”.
There is no additional fee for obtaining a carpool permit.
Note: Carpool decals are given on a first-come first-served. Once decals run out, carpool options are closed until the next semester. IMPORTANT: You must display both your Zone Parking decal and your Carpool permit.
- Failure to display a carpool permit in a carpool parking spot will result in a citation.
- Failure to have a proper parking decal in addition to the carpool decal will result in a citation.
- Carpool permits MUST be renewed each semester.
- Should any member of the carpool lose their permit, please contact the Card Services office. Kennesaw Card Services Office: 470.578.3436 / MariettaCard Services Office: 470.578.5114
Carpool Program permit, a fee of $25 will be imposed to receive a new permit. This includes theft without a police report. This replacement fee will not be covered by MOWR.
Motorcycles do not need a parking permit. However, motorcycle owners must register their vehicle information in Owl Express for safety and security purposes. Motorcycle parking is available on campus in areas marked for Motorcycle Parking Only. Motorcycle parking is available in several parking areas/lots around campus and marked by signs.
Motorcycles may also park in parking decks in areas marked for Motorcycle Parking Only. If you wish to park a motorcycle in a deck, carefully drive around the gate at the entrance to enter the deck.
Motorcycles MAY NOT park in any regular vehicle parking space. Parking in a regular parking space will result in a citation.
