Parking - General Information

Belmont’s parking registration for the 24-25 academic year will open June 11, 2024.

Permits are now virtual, so there is no need to visit Campus Security to pick up a parking decal. Instead of a physical permit to display, each student/faculty/staff will register their vehicle's license plate(s) and then park where their virtual permit allows. This removes the burden of issuing, securing (no more lost/stolen permits) and displaying the physical permit. In essence, your license plate is your permit. No more long permit pickup lines!

Visitors may register at Registration is free of charge and may be done for up to two days at a time. Once registered, there is no need to print or display any permits on your dash as your visitor parking pass is virtual.
