    Permit Options
    Parking and Transportation has new permitting options available for the 2019-20 academic year.

    2019-20 Permit: Valid August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020
    If you are a current student planning 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)
    Economy Lots - $45 (equals $15 per semester x 3 semesters)
    Shuttle Lots – FREE (A permit and vehicle registration is still needed)
    select a Fall 2019 permit, which is valid between August 1, 2019, and December 31, 2019. 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. If you return to campus for the Spring 2020 semester, you will need to pick a new permit from the parking areas available for the spring semester.

    The cost for Fall 2019 parking permits are as follows:
    Residential Parking Permits - $26 for Fall semester

    Commuter Parking Permits
    Central, East and West Areas - $26 for Fall semester
    Economy Lots - $15 per semester
    Shuttle Lots – FREE (A permit and vehicle registration is still needed)

    Do Not Wait
    For the best variety of parking area options, go to parkingportal.kennesaw.edu on your designated date listed above, starting at 10 AM, to make your permit selection and to choose vehicles to link to your new permit. If you are a current student and do not select your parking for next year by May 6, you will have to wait until July 25 for your next opportunity to do so.

     

  • Current KSU students may currently select a parking area for Spring 2019.

Your parking permit will be good through July 31, 2019. Each semester (fall, spring and summer), your student account will be charged the amount associated with the parking permit you select unless your permit is returned online at parkingportal.kennesaw.edu.
