Important things to know about parking on campus

  • Free parking is available on weekends and university recognized holidays in employee and commuter lots unless otherwise posted. Weekend guests must display an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) placard or license plate to use ADA stalls.
  • Year-round, a vehicle must display a valid permit to park on campus Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., excluding parking lots that are free after 4:30 p.m. These lots include P7A (Health and Learning Center), P13 (behind Cline Library), and P62 (near I-40). ADA stalls are available and require an ADA placard or license plate in conjunction with a valid university parking permit.
  • Short-term parking is available throughout campus. Garages are located on Knoles Drive and San Francisco Street. Pay by space stalls are available in P7 (WAC), P16 (Union/Fieldhouse), and P45 (du Bois). Pay by lots are available for use in P13 (behind Cline Library), P62 (I-40), P64 (NAUPD/Capital Assets), and P66 (Skydome). The garages and kiosks accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and debit cards with Visa and MasterCard logos only. A vehicle displaying a student permit is prohibited from parking in garages, pay by space stalls, and pay by lots as these are intended for campus guests.
  • An additional short-term parking option includes the "15 Minute Parking No Permit Required" stalls. These stalls may be utilized with or without a valid permit.
  • Permit requirements are posted at the entrances to all lots. Signs and permits are color-coded. Many of the lots have designated stalls within them that must be avoided unless authorized to use. For example, the designated employee stalls located in the residential lot west of Wilson Hall (P30), and the designated employee stalls located in the north commuter lot west of Cline Library (P13).
  • A vehicle can be removed from an account by emailing ask.parking@nau.edu. If you are removing a vehicle, the history will remain on the account, but the vehicle will be inactive. It is the responsibility of the registered owner to notify Parking Services immediately if the vehicle is stolen, or if it is sold to another party.
  • A citation is viewable and appealable through Manage My Parking within 48 hours, and if the responsible individual is known and has a LOUIE account, the charge will post to LOUIE within 72 hours. Once posted to LOUIE, the citation may then be paid online, or a cash or check payment made at Student and Departmental Account Services (Gammage building #1). If you do not have a LOUIE account, log into Manage My Parking and create a guest account, or pay in our office using a major credit card.
  • Parking and Shuttle Services takes an active role in helping you avoid receiving a citation. If you feel you have received a citation in error an appeal is submitted online. It takes approximately two weeks to adjudicate. A decision is posted to your Manage My Parking account. Email responses are sent daily.
  • Health Services pays for client parking. Parking is located in the HLC lot south of the building (P28A). A code is required to enter at the kiosk to receive a free temporary parking permit and is included in the appointment reminder email. If you visit Health Services as a walk-in client, follow the instructions on the kiosk. The temporary permit should be displayed in its entirety on the passenger side windshield, and expires two hours after issuance.
  • Health Professions pays for client parking. Parking is located on south campus in lot P48A. A permit is issued from the appropriate office in the Health Professions building (#66). The temporary permit should be displayed in its entirety on the passenger side windshield.
  • Benefit-eligible faculty and staff may take advantage of tax savings by choosing 5, 10 or 18 (AY) payroll deductions.
