Evening and Weekend NGT Night Permit

If you are a faculty or staff member, commuting student, alumni or visitor and do not own an annual parking permit, you are eligible to order an after-hours ("NGT") permit.  If you have an annual permit, it will grant access to the same lots as a Standard NGT permit.
