Ball State University parking rules and regulations will be enforced as long as the university is open for business. This means that during breaks when classes are not in session but university offices remain open, rules and regulations will be enforced. During these breaks commuter, stadium, and blue residence hall permits are interchangeable. All other permits must be used in their assigned lots. 

These breaks include:

      • Fall break
      • Spring break
      • Winter break
      • Weeks between semesters or summer sessions


Zone enforcement will be suspended only when the university is closed for business (i.e. Saturday, Sunday, and university holidays).

These holidays include:

      • New Year’s Day
      • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
      • Memorial Day
      • Independence Day
      • Labor Day
      • Thanksgiving Day and the following day
      • Christmas Day
      • An additional day to be designated by the president of the university
