Parking information for Students
Recent construction projects on campus are making parking more of a challenge. Understanding your options will make parking easier, and following the parking regulations will promote safety.
A permit is required to park on campus at all times. Permits may not be loaned, sold or transferred to other people. Sticker permits may not be transferred to other vehicles. The permit holder is responsible for citations issued to any vehicle(s) bearing his/her permit, regardless of vehicle ownership.
Purchasing Parking Permits
Registered students may purchase a permit using the online registration system RamPark. They also may register their vehicles in person at the Parking Services Office. Permit fees are billed to a student’s account and may be paid online or at the Student Accounts Office in the Mayer Administration Building.
Purchasing a permit does not guarantee a parking space on campus. A parking permit signifies that a student, faculty member or staff member has been granted the privilege of parking a motor vehicle on university property.
- $90 for the full year (August-August) or $50 per semester for “B” and “C” permits
- $120 for the full year (August-August) for “D” permits.
- $150 for Combination (car/ motorcycle) for “B” and “C” permits (August-August) or $80 per semester.
See the Traffic and Parking Regulations for more detailed information.
Lost or Stolen Permits
Lost or stolen permits should be reported immediately to Parking Services, and a report needs to be made with the ASU Police Department. A damaged permit may be replaced at no charge, if the pieces showing the permit number are returned to Parking Services.
Angelo State University uses a zone parking system. The campus is divided into five zones: A, B, C, D and General Use. The zones allow parking as follows:
Zone A: These are reserved from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for faculty and staff with valid “A” permits.
Zone B: These are reserved from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday for commuter students with valid “B” permits.
Zone C: These are reserved from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday for students living on campus with valid “C” permits.
Zone D: These are reserved from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday for commuter students with valid “D” permits for the specific lot. There are currently two “D” zones on campus and they are designated as “Tow Away Zones.” Violators parking in these zones are subject to being towed at the owner’s expense.
Zone E: These are reserved from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday for commuter students with valid “E” permits for the specific lot. There is currently one “E” zone, lot P21 off Jackson Street.
Zone A/B/C (General Use): Zones designated as “A/B/C” are considered “General Use” zones. Anyone with a valid ASU parking permit may park in these zones.
Holiday and Special Event Parking
Parking rules and regulations are in effect regardless of whether classes are in session. However, on official university holidays, only those restrictions that regulate parking at all times remain in effect. Lots are subject to closure during inclement weather, athletic events or other special events, and vehicles may be subject to periodic relocations for university sponsored events.
Parking Services makes every effort to notify all permit holders of special events that effect parking.
Students with Disabilities Parking
Students with a valid, state-issued disability placard or license plate may park in any available space on campus if they are unable to find an empty designated disabled parking space – with the exception of spaces reserved for service vehicles and police vehicles, etc.
Temporary disability permits will be issued to students for a maximum of two weeks for an obvious injury. Extended permits are issued with a written request from a physician. While on the ASU campus, these temporary permits are treated as if they are official state-issued disability placards. They offer no parking privileges off campus.
Installing Your Parking Permit
If you have already purchased a new parking permit, the hard part is over. All you have to do is follow these easy instructions to install your new permit, and it will be valid in your designated parking zone.
- Remove any expired ASU parking permits. This includes decals.
- Place the hangtag on your rearview mirror with the permit number and zone facing the front of the windshield.
- Make sure the permit is clearly visible from the front of the vehicle and is not obscured by any other item(s) that may be hanging from the mirror.
Note: You have to properly display your permit for it to be valid. If we can’t see it or if it is not in the proper place, you will get a ticket.
