Parking Hang Tags for Fall & Spring Semesters

Kent State Stark students are required to register their vehicle(s) in person before a parking hang tag can be issued. Parking will remain free at Kent State Stark; however, parking hang tags are required and will not be issued by mail.

This vehicle registration procedure will ensure that Campus Security can better regulate student and faculty/staff parking, can contact students in case of a problem with their vehicle (lights left on, damage to vehicle, etc.) or offer vehicle lockout assistance.

  • You must be registered for classes before a parking hang tag can be issued.
  • Parking hang tags are required in all designated student lots.

Parking hang tags issued during fall semester are also good for spring semester.
