Faculty and Staff Parking Permits

Every faculty/staff employee wishing to use parking facilities at Wilkes University campus (Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.) must register their vehicle with Parking Services and, while parked on campus, properly display an authorized parking permit.

All permits remain the property of Wilkes University and must be returned upon request. Permits are specific to the employee and the vehicles (license plates) to which they are registered. Permits may not be transferred, sold or duplicated.

Any faculty/staff employee of the University or of an affiliated program, working on campus, is eligible for campus parking privileges, unless privileges have been revoked.

Vehicles may be registered for weekly or daily periods for employees who use vehicles on an occasional basis. One-day permits may be obtained at the University Police Station in the ground level of the parking garage.

Permit holders are responsible for reporting address and license plate changes to Parking Services. Failure to report these changes may result in vehicles being towed from campus and unpaid tickets being sent to the registered vehicle owner.

  • Parking permit fees shall be paid through payroll deduction. Fees must be paid while in possession of the permit, regardless of use. Sabbatical, medical leave, or absence from the campus does not excuse the permit holder from payment.
  • Payment is required unless the permit is returned to Parking Services. Failure to remit payment will result in permit revocation. Vehicles associated with revoked permits will be towed at the owner's expense.
  • Permits must be returned upon leave without pay, separation, retirement, or by request of Parking Services to end the responsibility of fees.

If a permit is lost or stolen, report the incident to Parking Services immediately. A non-refundable replacement processing fee of $25 will be assessed for sticker permits. The fee must be paid regardless of whether or not a new permit is issued. In the event of a stolen parking permit, Parking Services will request an incident report from University Police in lieu of replacement fees.
