Parking Information for Students

Students should apply for a parking permit through their Nest account.  The fee will then be applied 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 BOTH a hang tag AND a validation sticker.  The hang tag should be affixed to the rear view mirror. The validation sticker should be placed on the outside of the rear window 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 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 2016/2017

The annual parking permit fee for students beginning September 1, 2016 through August 31, 2017 will be $341.00.  Second vehicle permits will be $22.00.  Second vehicle permits are issued to those students who will be driving two different vehicles.  Only one vehicle can be parked on campus at a time.  The hangtag must be moved to the vehicle you plan to park on campus on a particular day.

Parking fees are pro-rated on a monthly basis beginning on November 1, 2016.

Don't volunteer to be a victim!  Unlocked doors or valuable property left in plain sight invite crime.  Eliminate the opportunity for a crime to occur.  Don't leave keys in your car.  Store valuables in your trunk or take them with you.  Report suspicious individuals in the lots to Public Safety by dialing 280-2104 or using a blue light emergency phone.

Anti-theft devices for your vehicle are available at cost at Public Safety.
