If You are Already on a Waitlist
There are a limited number of Circuit and Green Zone spaces available this year which will be allocated via waitlist invitations. Due to the significant holdover requests for these zones, no Circuit or Green Zone permits will be offered to those signing up for waitlists this summer. If you are already on the Circuit or Green Zone waitlist, please do not remove yourself from the waitlist unless you no longer desire that parking. To join a waitlist, visit this page.
Parking fees are billed to student Bursar accounts. No other method of payment is accepted.
Students who do not have a vehicle when they purchase a permit may enter their Duke Unique ID number in the license information section of the permit order form. When a vehicle and permanent license plate are obtained, students must update vehicle records within 10 business days.
How to Obtain Your Parking Permit
Parking permits purchased online will be mailed to addresses within the continental United States within seven to ten business days.
When to Display Parking Permit
Permits should be displayed on vehicles on August 16. Parking Zone enforcement will begin on September 1.
Students with permanent physical disabilities must request consideration for handicapped parking each year by filling out an application form and forwarding copies to the Disability Management System.
Evening and Weekend Access to Parking Lots
Your DukeCard (not the Parking Permit) provides access to many parking lots after 5:00 p.m. weekdays and on weekends all year long, excluding times when lots are reserved for events. When attending a special event on campus, your permit allows free parking in lots designated for the general public.
