Parking Permits

Parking permits are required on all vehicles. Access to the gated campus and parking areas is available using a transponder that has been programmed to open specific parking lot and campus gates. Vehicles are restricted by permit to specific, assigned parking lots. With the exception of the parking garage and current West Lot permit holders, faculty and staff are assigned parking lots based on proximity to their work place location. Parking permits, other than a “D” permit or a meter permit, are not valid for metered spaces in any RPI lot.

Any number of vehicles may be registered under one permit, however, only one registered vehicle is allowed on campus at any one time. Only one (1), transferable hang tag (or decal in the case of motorcycles only) will be issued with each permit. If a second vehicle is required to be on campus a second permit must be purchased at the full permit price. Additional or replacement transponders are available at a cost of $15. A replacement fee of $6 will be charged for lost or stolen hang tags. A $50 fee will be charged for unreturned temporary transponders.

Service space permits are required on the main campus (between College & Sage Avenues, and 15th & 8th Streets) 24 hours a day, every day including Institute holidays and semester breaks.

Hang tag permits must be obtained by you in person (or by a designee) from the campus Parking Office between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
