Student Parking Information 2017/18

All vehicles parked on Creighton University property are required to display a valid University parking permit.  A valid parking permit consists of a decal that should be affixed to the exterior of the rear window on the driver's side.  If your vehicle does not have a glass rear window, please place the decal on the front windshield, lower corner on the passenger 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.  Students may not purchase a second vehicle permit.

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.  The 2017/18 permits are valid through August 31, 2018.  Students should apply for a parking permit through their NEST account.  The fee will be applied to the tuition account.

Basic Regulations

Student parking is available on Levels 1 and 2 of the 20th Street Garage, on Levels 2 and 3 of the 24th Street Garage, and on Level 2 of the 30th Street Garage.  University ID cards and parking permits are required to access all garages.

Motorcycle Parking Permits

Motorcycles parked near bicycle racks do not require a permit, however, motorcycles that take up a parking space must display a current permit.
