Student Parking Permit Availability

Parking Services has been monitoring the usage of the parking lots on a daily basis to determine where there is open and available space.  Permits are being awarded from the waitlist and additional permits for select lots are being made available for sale on a regular basis based on where there is open space. Please check the parking portal to check availablity.

Other options:

Local churches – Many of the local churches sell parking permits for their lots. These permits are issued by the churches and are not affiliated with Kent State University Parking Services, therefore these permits are not honored on the Kent campus.
