Parking on campus requires a valid Georgia Tech permit. By purchasing an annual parking permit, students, faculty and staff may park in their assigned lots at any time (except as needed for special events). Permits are valid from the time of sale to August 14 each year.

All Georgia Tech students, including freshmen, faculty and staff are eligible to purchase parking permits at any time during the academic year (annual permits are sold a prorated prices).  Permits are available for sale at driverseat.gatech.edu or in the PTS office.

All student parking permits will be charged to the student's Bursar account and must be paid through the Bursar's Office. Payments for parking permit charges are subject to the same payment policies and schedule that apply to other tuition and fees. Faculty and staff may pay for permits with cash or check (in office only) or credit card.

Official campus signs, maps, and markings designate authorized parking areas and spaces. Parking permit patrons must park in their designated zones only unless authorized by the Parking and Transportation department.

All parking permits are non-transferable. Permits cannot be sold or given to others. Doing so may result in citations or towing.

Overnight or extended parking of campers, vans, buses, etc., utilized as living and sleeping quarters within Institute boundaries, is not permitted unless approved by the PTS Office.

Vehicles with permits are required to pay the posted rates when parking in visitors parking zones or in metered spaces.

Special Event Parking and Transit

Special campus events, such as home athletic events, have an impact on campus parking and transportation and may result in the temporary displacement of annual permit holders. Customers will be notified via email about special event parking as well as alternate parking and transportation options.

Motor vehicles must be removed from these zones, or they will be subject to impoundment.
