Parking Policies

Student Parking at DuBois

When parking on campus property student vehicles should be parked in STUDENT PARKING AREAS ONLY. Please note that the streets surrounding the campus have been converted to “Permit Parking Only” for city residents. Second Avenue (behind the Donald Hiller Building) and College Place have both been reserved as Permit Parking Only for Penn State DuBois students. Please note: if students choose to park on City property (streets) students must follow The City of DuBois parking rules and regulations.  Some City parking areas require that the vehicle be registered with the University.  Parking is not permitted in Faculty/Staff lots, areas marked “Visitor”, in those spaces with other special designations such as “Reserved for the Penn Stater of the Quarter”, or in the Career Link lot. Vehicles parked in handicapped-accessible spots must have a state-issued handicapped plate or placard and must be registered with the University. See “Vehicle Registration and Parking Permits” for more information on how to obtain a student parking permit. View the campus map by clicking on the Campus Map and Directions link on this page for assigned student parking areas.

Faculty and Staff Parking at DuBois

All faculty and staff must obtain a hanging parking permit through the Director of Business Services to be able to park in the lots on the DuBois Campus. Parking is not permitted in areas marked “Visitor” or in those with other special designations such as “Reserved for the Penn Stater of the Quarter”. Vehicles parked in handicapped-accessible spots must have a state-issued handicapped plate or placard and must be registered with the University. Faculty and Staff may request a parking permit using the Parking Permit Registration link at the bottom of this page. Faculty/staff permits may be picked up in upstairs Symmco on the next business day.

Visitor Parking at DuBois

Visitors may obtain a temporary parking pass from one of the following offices:  Student Affairs, Outreach, Admissions, Academic Affairs, Chancellor’s Office, Business Services, or SAFARI. A map of these locations can be found by clicking on the Campus Map and Directions link on this page. The pass must be displayed by hanging it from the rearview mirror and is only valid for a specified day and time. Visitors with valid passes may park in in the main faculty/staff lot. Penn State students are not considered visitors for any reason and must use the student lots.

Vehicle Registration and Parking Permits

All students must register their motor vehicle each academic year. Registration is FREE to all students. Vehicle registration is completed by submitting the Parking Permit Registration link at the bottom of this page. Permits may be picked up in 256 Swift (SAFARI) on the next business day after registration by the student. You must show your PSU Photo ID to pick up your permit.  Please be advised that due to the busy nature of the office at the start of the semester pickup hours may be limited and/or the pickup location may be changed. Students should monitor their PSU email for notices concerning these changes.

The color-coded hanger permit should be immediately displayed from the rear-view mirror with the color side facing forward.

Additional permits for a second vehicle and motorcycles are available for a fee of $4. Students requesting additional permits should complete registration as stated above. This fee is due when permit is picked up. Additional vehicles and motorcycles are subject to the same parking rules and regulations.

Parking Tickets

Campus parking tickets are to be paid in the Finance Office which is located in Room 256 (SAFARI) of the Swift Building. All penalties shall be paid or appealed within 48 hours. Appeal forms may be obtained in the Finance Office (256 swift) or in the Office of Student Engagement (104 Hiller). All fines must be paid before an appeal can be filed. A receipt showing the fine was paid must accompany the appeal form. Failure to comply will result in the loss of appeal.

Parking fines are $10.00 if paid within 48 hours of issuance (excludes parking in handicapped-accessible spaces). The fine will increase to $12.00 after 48 hours. The fine for parking in a handicapped-accessible space is $25.00. After four violations are incurred by an individual, the face value of the ticket will double each time another parking violation occurs.

Anyone parking on City property (surrounding streets) must also follow the City of DuBois parking rules and regulations. Some City parking areas require the vehicle to be registered with the University. The University has no control over City fines. For disputes regarding tickets issued by the City of DuBois, you must contact the DuBois City Police Department.
