Getting a Permit


  • Permit Options
    Parking and Transportation has new permitting options available for the 2019-20 academic year. Student permit rates listed below do not include the mandatory parking infrastructure fee. The mandatory parking infrastructure fee is $93 per semester.

    2019-20 Permit: Valid August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020

    If you plan to attend classes in the fall, spring and summer semesters, we recommend purchasing a year-long permit, which is valid between August 1, 2019, and July 31, 2020, to secure your preferred parking area for the entire academic year. The full value of the permit will be charged to your Banner account when the permit becomes active on August 1, 2019. This permit type is the best option to ensure that you have your selected parking area for the entire school year. If you end up not returning to campus for the spring or summer semester, you can return your permit online for a prorated refund.

    The cost of a 2019-20 parking permits are as follows:
    Residential Parking Permits - $78 (equals $26 per semester x 3 semesters)

    Commuter Parking Permits
    Central, East and West Areas - $78 (equals $26 per semester x 3 semesters)

Your Banner account will be charged the amount associated with the parking permit you select for the Fall 2019 semester only. It’s important to note that your permit will not renew for the spring semester with this selection.

  • Faculty/Staff parking permits are issued at the Talon One Service Center and are valid until returned, or employment is terminated. Faculty/staff parking areas are denoted with signage and/or green lines.

    A Faculty/Staff parking permit costs $23 per month and allows you to park in any faculty/staff space on both the Kennesaw and Marietta Campus. Employees seeking a lower cost option can select an Economy Lot parking permit for $10 per month or a Shuttle Lot parking permit free of charge. Employees purchasing a permit must utilize KSU's payroll deduction as the payment method. The parking permit deductions are pre-tax.

Parking and Transportation is the sole department authorized to issue any parking permit used for parking on the Kennesaw and Marietta Campuses. Parking and Transportation has the authority to establish parking rates and fees including but not limited to late fees. By purchasing a parking permit, students, faculty and staff may park in their assigned areas or lots at any time (except as needed for special events). All parking permit holders are responsible for knowing and understanding the rules and regulation and paying any parking fees associated with their permit and citation fines if incurred.
