For more information and instructions on how to obtain your parking permit, select your affiliation below:

Faculty/Staff
All Princeton University faculty and staff must register/renew their vehicle(s) with Transportation & Parking Services for parking on campus and/or for parking at University housing units.

Online registration requires:
• PU Net ID
• Vehicle license plate number, state, make, model and color.

New employees will receive a parking registration form and additional information during their Human Resources New Hire Orientation.

Freshmen and sophomores are not permitted to have a vehicle on campus. Upperclassmen may not register a vehicle on behalf of a freshman or sophomore.

Online registration requires:

Parking arrangements for guests to the campus are the responsibility of the inviting party. To avoid the towing of a guest’s vehicle, students must make parking arrangements for their guests with Transportation & Parking Services.

On weekends, from Friday through Monday 2:00 a.m., guests may park free in undergraduate lots.
