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. The parking permit can be picked from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Blue Jay Essentials located in the Skutt Student Center on Saturday, August 18, 2012. After that date, permits may be picked up Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., in the Public Safety Office located at 2204 Burt Street.
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.

Full-time student permit fees are $306.00 per year.
Part-time student permit fees are $153.00 per year (you must be listed as a part-time student by the University Registrar's Office).
For those who may drive different vehicles to campus, additional validation stickers are available for $22.00. Both the hang tag and the validation sticker must be displayed when a vehicle is parked on campus and only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time.
