Faculty and staff may register their vehicles to obtain parking permits anytime, and permanent staff and faculty parking permits are non-expiring. Faculty/staff decals are issued to employees of the University who are not graduate assistants or teaching assistants. An employee is defined as a person who is paid by the University or a private contractor such as Aramark, is listed as an employee in Human Resources or in Academic Affairs, and is not at the University primarily for their own educational advancement.
If you are full-time staff or faculty and do not have a parking permit but need to obtain one, please visit the Parking Operations Office to enroll in the payroll deduction program and receive your permit. Once enrolled, permits are continuous as long as the member remains enrolled in the payroll deduction program.
Generally, employees park in yellow-lined spaces (not in white spaces). There are some local exceptions to this rule at the residence halls for housekeepers (who may park in white spaces at the residence halls where they work), in the Baptist Church Lot, and in the Old Warehouse Lot between the Bookstore and the Print Shop, and in the Outreach Center.
Faculty/staff may also park in any of the overflow spaces at the stadium, the Ramsey Center, the baseball field lots, and the Walker A lot.
Cullowhee United Methodist Church (Lot# 65) is Faculty/Staff parking. Please note: this lot is closed from 5:00 PM till 7:00 am daily.
