Parking Permits

Beginning Fall 2017, your license plate will serve as your parking permit (no physical decals will be issued). Furthermore, backing in or pulling through parking spaces will not be permitted.

The Parking and Transportation department of Auxiliary Services at Georgia Southern University is here to help aid your parking and transit needs. Parking and Transportation is responsible for the implementation and enforcement of the University’s parking regulations, as well as the placement and maintenance of parking and traffic control devices. Visit GeorgiaSouthern.edu/parking for parking, permit and transit information, lot status and all updates.

Carpool Program
Transportation is one of the biggest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions. There are thousands of people driving to campus every day. Why not cut travel costs, reduce wear and tear on your vehicle, conserve energy and help fight air pollution by using carpools to commute to work or school? Parking and Transportation is proud to continue offering carpool parking at a reduced rate with the convenience of parking closer to your destination.

RAC and Stadium Parking
The RAC is permit parking between the hours of 8 am – 3 pm. You may park at the RAC with ANY current Georgia Southern University parking permit. For those attending classes or who wish to work out during these hours without a parking permit, you may park at the stadium and ride the bus to the RAC as a permit is not required to park at the stadium. Additionally, since it is not required to have a permit for Paulson Stadium, it is available for parking and riding the bus or walking to campus.
