Parking and Transportation
The Parking and Transportation division 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 auxiliary.georgiasouthern.edu/parking/ for parking, permit, and transit information, lot status and all updates.
Virtual parking permits are sold only to currently enrolled students, faculty and staff on a first-come, first-served basis. Students should use their My.GeorgiaSouthern.edu accounts or visit the Parking and Transportation offices on the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses to purchase their permits. Simply login to My.GeorgiaSouthern.edu and click on the “Parking Permits & Citations” link under “Auxiliary Services,” to purchase permits online. Students with a lot preference should purchase their permits as early as possible.
License Plate Recognition
Our Parking and Transportation division recently implemented a virtual system, License Plate Recognition (LPR) software, which makes the permit system at the University completely virtual and decal-free. Your license plate acts as your permit and is simply scanned by an LPR vehicle to verify parking status. The implementation of LPR means vehicles cannot be pulled through or backed into spaces.
When entering your license plate information, please make sure to key in the exact license plate completely and correctly. The LPR system cannot recognize incomplete or incorrect plates, and this could result in a citation.
Statesboro Campus commuters may purchase a parking permit designated to a specific commuter lot for $160 per year (Lot 12 or RAC is $110 per year). Commuters on the Armstrong Campus may purchase a commuter parking permit for $50 per year and may park in any commuter lot on that campus.
Permit holders can utilize 30-minute parking between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on both the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses.
RAC & Stadium Parking
Permit parking at the RAC on the Statesboro Campus is enforced between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. You may park at the RAC with ANY Georgia Southern University parking permit. For those attending classes or who wish to work out during these hours without a parking permit, parking is available for free at the stadium, and a bus route will take you directly from that lot to the RAC or any other destination along our shuttle routes.
Two or more students on the Statesboro Campus may purchase a carpool permit at a reduced rate of $110 per year. Carpool permits may be shared among several vehicles on this campus, although vehicles cannot be on campus at the same time.
Students living on the Statesboro Campus have a residential parking permit reserved for them corresponding to their specific residence hall designated lot when they purchase their permits ($160/year). These students should purchase their permits before arriving for Operation Move-In (OMI).
Students living on the Armstrong Campus must register their vehicles prior to OMI; however, the cost of the parking permit is included in the Housing fee. Armstrong Campus residents may park in any residential lot only.
Motorcycle permits are required for all motor-driven cycles including motorcycles, scooters, mini-bikes, motorbikes and mopeds (whether they be two or three-wheeled, with any engine size). Motorcycles should only be parked in designated motorcycle spots.
Visitors and Guests
Visitors and guests should visit the Parking & Transportation Office on the Statesboro or Armstrong Campus to get a temporary parking permit for $2 per day. Students may not park in visitor spots for any reason.
Paying for citations is done through the Parking and Transportation web portal. To access the portal, log in to My.GeorgiaSouthern. Under “My Services,” select the “Parking Permits & Citations” link under “Auxiliary Services.” Once logged in, you will be able to view permit information, contact information, registered vehicles and any outstanding balances.
Zipcar is available to all Georgia Southern University students, faculty and staff over the age of 18. Zipcar is an alternative to bringing a car to school and gives members 24/7 access to vehicles parked right on the Statesboro Campus. Low hourly and daily rates include gas, insurance and 180 miles per day to go wherever you want to go! Members can reserve cares online or with a smartphone for as little as an hour or up to four days. Enjoy all the freedom of owning a car without any of the hassle. Find out more about how it works at www.zipcar.com/universities/georgia-southern-university.
Our transit service runs across the Statesboro Campus during classes, final exams, football game days and spring commencement to shuttle around on-site parking areas. The transit service does not run when classes are not in session, during holidays and between semesters. Buses run between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Fridays and 4-9 p.m. The transit service is funded by a mandatory transportation fee charged each semester.
Liberty Campus Students
Students from the Liberty Campus are not required to purchase a parking permit to park on the Liberty Campus; however, they will need to get a temporary pass when visiting other Georgia Southern campuses. Visit parking.georgiasouthern.edu or see a staff member at the Parking & Transportation office to get your temporary pass.
