It’s Time to Order your Permits!

Permits are available online for students, staff & faculty.

When you order online, make sure to print out your temporary permit and place it on your dash. The temporary permit does have an expiration date, so make note of it and if for any reason you do not receive your permit in the mail before the expiration date, pop into the office in the Student Services Bldg to get one. Use the cheat sheets below!

All registered students are eligible for a permit and anyone parking on campus is REQUIRED to have a permit.

Citations for No Permit are $25.00, Don’t let this happen to you!!!!

How Not to Get a Citation


Here is your quick reference on the parking rules. Take a moment to read them and #AvoidCitations.

Remember: We have lifted the permit requirements in GREEN and BLUE lots for the first week of the semester.  Students may park in any GREEN or BLUE lot without a permit displayed until January 12, 2015.

(Red permit lots, meters, reserved/assigned spaces and all other violations are still enforced.)

New Permits can be purchased online using your MyFAU account.

If you are replacing a permit, bring in the old to the Parking window in the Student Support Bldg. for a free replacement.  (If you don’t have the old one the fee is $15).

Help! I can’t find any parking spots!

I can’t find any parking spots!

 FAU Garage 1

The Beginning of a New Semester!

The beginning of a new semester or academic year brings with it the challenge of finding the perfect parking spot.  Everything takes a little longer on campus during the first weeks of a new semester!  Take comfort that after a few weeks the hectic search will stabilize as students and faculty get used to the schedules, routines and the locations that are available at different times during the day.

Follow Us.

During the first few weeks of each semester we try to live tweet as the garages and lots fill.  Throughout the year we also try to retweet any local traffic issues that might affect our Owls.

Digital Counter and Signs.

Watch for signs on the front of the garages and DO NOT PULL IN IF THE SIGN SAYS FULL.  Garage 3 (by the stadium) has a digital counter that shows available spaces.  The digital counter can also be viewed on our website.

Alternate Entrances.

3 entrances to FAU from Glades Rd

Three (3) entrances to FAU from Glades Rd.

There are 5 entrances to FAU.

  1. Three (3) entrances off Glades Rd.
  2. Spanish River through the Research Center
  3. The 20th Street entrance from Federal Hwy (between Glades and Spanish River).

Allow extra time.

Surprisingly there really is plenty of parking spots on campus.  However, they cannot all be right next to our classes, therefore everyone must allow extra time to walk or take a shuttle from the outer lots.

Adjusting your arrival time on campus may make a difference in the competition you face for a parking space.

Know your options.     FAU Parking Google Map

As with all large Universities, everyone wants to park in the central campus lots.  Keep in mind that these lots (Lots 1, 4, 7, 16, 25, 28) usually fill first.  If you are arriving after 8am it will be an exercise in futility to drive around trying to get one of these spots.

Each semester is a little different, however historically Tuesdays and Thursdays are the busiest days.  The parking garages are usually full by 11:00 at the latest.  So if you are arriving on campus after that time it is usually wise to head to the outer lots. (Lots 5, 12, 13). 

Familiarize yourself with the map, so you know where to find the outer lots when you need them.  It takes far less time to walk from Lot 5, then it does to drive aimlessly around in traffic looking for a lucky spot.

Park once.

This is good advice no matter what time of year. If you need to be at various locations on campus throughout the day, leave your car where you parked it and either walk or jump on Owl Express to get there. It’s also good for the environment. (Possibly your waistline too 😉 )
