Faculty/Staff Parking Permits

The vehicles of all Kent State employees and students must display valid parking permits obtained through Parking Services while parked on campus. (Kent State University policy 4-08.1).

  • Current Faculty/Staff – Full or part-time employees who did not renew online, need to change parking areas or want to purchase a permit using a payment other than payroll deduction can bring the completed parking permit application (PDF) and payment to the Parking Services office in room 123 Schwartz Center.
  • New University Employees – Bring the completed parking permit application (PDF) to the Parking Services office in room 123 Schwartz Center. If you want to use payroll deduction to purchase your permit, you may be required to pay for a portion of the current month before payroll deduction can be started.
