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, are eligible to purchase parking permits beginning in August of each academic year at the Parking and Transportation 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.
All currently enrolled students, faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in annual online parking permit registration (April 15-June 15) to submit their parking zone preferences via My Parking Account.
Permit requests are prioritized based on employee status, student class standing, and parking status. Same-zone renewals have first priority, followed by previously registered individuals requesting change of zone, and then new registration requests. Individuals requesting change of zone give up the claim to a space in the previous zone.
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 Parking Office.
Vehicles with permits are not allowed to park in visitors parking zones or in metered spaces.
Annual Permit Prices
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.
"The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and the Georgia Institute of Technology shall not be responsible for loss or damage of any type to a vehicle, its accessories, or its contents, whether resulting from theft, vandalism, fire or any other cause."
All regular permit holders may park in non-residential areas from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., Monday through Thursday and from 5:00 p.m. Friday to 8:00 a.m. Monday, excluding E45 and E81 (both must be vacated by 6:00 a.m.). After-hours access is not allowed in E82.
