After-Hours Permit (Night Permit)
If you are a faculty member, staff, commuting student, alumni or visitor and do not own an annual parking permit, you are eligible for an after-hours ("Night") permit at no charge. If you have an annual permit, it will grant access to the same lots as a NGT permit.
