Vendor Permit Applications

Valid Kent State University parking permits are required for ALL vehicles parked on campus (other than meters and designated visitor areas). They can be obtained from the Parking Services Office at 123 Schwartz Center (at the corner of Summit St. and Morris Rd.).

Vendor parking permits are issued to individuals conducting business at Kent State University. Students enrolled at Kent State University, faculty, and staff members are not eligible for Vendor permits.  Individuals who are students, faculty, or staff working for a company in addition to their employment at Kent State University may not use a company's Vendor permit to attend class or work.

Vendors must show a valid ID and business card to apply for a Vendor permit. In addition, new applicants must complete the Vendor application for our files.  Business owners may purchase more than one permit at a time.  However, they are responsible for any citations received under any of the Vendor permits because they will be issued in their name.
