Visitor permits are available to anyone who is not a current student or employee. They are issued for a specific lot or zoned area and cost $5 per day. Students may not request a permit for their visitor. To request a permit, the visitor must bring the following items to the Office of Parking Services:

      • Driver's license
      • License plate number and expiration date
      • Vehicle make, color, and year

If you need handicap parking accommodations, please bring the certification sheet for your state issued placard or the vehicle registration for your handicap license plate.

Visitors may not register a vehicle that belongs to a student or employee. Students or employees using a visitor permit will be cited for Improper Registration and have their parking privileges revoked.

University Departments

University departments may request visitor permits for guest speakers, groups, events, or other visitors to their department. Requests may be made by calling 285-1208 or emailing parking@bsu.edu. Large requests require advance notice. Please allow at least 48 hours advance notice for orders of 20 or more permits. We will not mail orders of 20 or more permits. They will need to be picked up at the Office of Parking Services.
