Parking Hangers and Permits

All vehicles that are to be operated or parked on University property by a full-time or part-time student, faculty or staff member must be registered with Campus Police. New students will be issued a parking hanger which is to be kept for the duration of their enrollment at Walsh University. Each year, students will receive an updated permit sticker with the academic year that must be affixed to the parking hanger. Temporary permits may be required when visitors need to park on University property for an extended period of time.

Parking Permit Waiver

At the start of both the fall and spring academic terms, students who will not have a vehicle on campus will need to complete a Parking Permit Waiver to remove the $75 parking free from their account. The Fall 2024 Permit Waiver form is open until the 5th business day of the term – 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 23, 2024.

  • If you had a vehicle on campus last academic year, and will have a vehicle on campus again this academic year: Keep your parking permit! Your Walsh University Parking Hanger and Permit are good for the full academic year. Your university account will automatically be charged the parking fee for Fall 2024.
  • If you had a vehicle on campus for Spring 2024 but will not have it have it on campus for Fall 2024: Complete the Fall 2024 Parking Waiver and return your parking hanger to the Student Affairs Office. If you had a vehicle on campus previous academic years and will not have one on campus this academic year and wish to waive the parking fee, your parking permit must be returned to the Student Affairs office and the parking waiver for Fall 2024 term must be submitted before the August 23 deadline. Waivers will not be honored without a returned permit.
