Resident student parking permits are awarded and sold through a lottery process. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, not every resident student is able to obtain a parking permit. Priority will be given to seniors, juniors and second-year students.
All resident students who wish to purchase a resident permit must complete and return a lottery form. Lottery forms are available from Parking Services or the St. Paul Public Safety office or you may submit an entry on-line. Information regarding specific lottery deadlines and forms can be found at the Resident Parking Permit Lottery page.
Once your name is drawn for any of the lotteries, you may purchase your permit at the Parking Services office at Murray Herrick Center, office 106. In order to purchase a permit you must provide proof of ownership of the vehicle, give an accurate license plate number and present valid St Thomas picture identification. Resident students may not purchase a permit for a vehicle registered to anyone other than themselves or their immediate family.
