Parking Information for Students

As our student population increases, and our campus grows, we are facing more challenges in terms of parking. In order to better serve our students, over 200 faculty and staff will be parking off campus daily, Monday through Thursday, to create more available parking on the main campus. The University continues to explore other short and long term parking options.

The parking permit MUST be permanently affixed inside the glass on the lower corner of the front windshield on the passenger side.  The UNH parking software interfaces with other UNH data bases and will automatically determine whether an applicant is eligible for a parking permit, as determined by the number of credits required.  The software will also track the issuance of parking tickets, tow warnings and the towing of vehicles.  Students who have properly registered a vehicle will receive an automatically generated e-mail notifying them of a ticket, tow warning and a tow.
