Can first-time freshman bring cars to campus, and if so, how can I purchase a parking permit?

We discourage bringing a car to campus for first-time freshman students who are not commuting. Free transportation services are available to all students, including shuttles, buses, and the Personal Rapid Transit (PRT). However, our policy does permit first-time students to have a car. To be eligible to purchase a parking permit, students must be registered for fall class and have completed their new student orientation. Students may purchase parking permits for the fall semester beginning on June 16th.
