Annual parking permits are sold based on residence location and space availability in lots or zones. By securing a permit early prior to arriving at Duke in August, you are guaranteed a space in the zone or lot designated by your permit.

Students with a 2016 spring or summer expected graduation date will not be eligible to purchase a permit for next academic year. Expected graduation dates are provided to PTS by the Registrar's Office. Students whose expected graduation dates have recently changed should contact the Registrar's Office to confirm accurate information is maintained on file.
