Parking Information for Students

Students may apply online via their Nest accounts for a 2017/18 parking permit after July 10, 2017.  If you apply for a permit before that date, you will be applying for a 2017 summer permit which will expire on 8/31/17.

The following information applies only to 2017/18 parking permits.

Students should apply for a parking permit through their Nest account.  The fee will then be added to the tuition account. 

All vehicles parked on Creighton University property are required to display a valid University parking permit.  A valid parking permit consists of a decal which should be affixed to the outside of the rear windshield on the driver's side. 

The purchase of a Creighton University parking permit only allows you to search for and occupy a parking space as space is available.  It does not guarantee the availability of a space.  During normal business hours students are required to park in student lots.  However, in the interest of safety, students with valid permits may also park in faculty/staff lots from 4 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday and any time on weekends. Students are not allowed to park in faculty/staff lots during breaks or student holidays.

Annual Student Parking Permit Fees for 2017/2018

The annual parking permit fee for students beginning September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018 will be $348.00. 

Parking fees are pro-rated on a monthly basis beginning on November 1, 2017.
