STUDENT PARKING PERMIT REGISTRATION PROCESS

Students may register for a parking permit through their MyKU account with a valid vehicle registration form and a photo of that form (3 MP max). Before completing the registration process, students should pay for any outstanding tickets and confirm their residency status. Requests for special parking arrangements should be completed at this time. Resident students will be issued a permit when they move into their residence hall. Non-residents will be contacted when their permit is ready for pickup and will be given instructions at that time. The Transportation Services website has answers to most parking permit questions. Email questions should be sent to parkingpermits@kutztown.edu. https://www.kutztown.edu/parking
