The SOU Parking Department is excited to announce our 2017 transition from physical parking permits over to virtual parking permits. 

A "Virtual" permit means your License Plate = Your Permit.


Students/Employees: For information on purchasing a parking permit, please click on the "Parking Permits: Long Term" link. To purchase a permit log into InsideSOU and click on the "Parking" link located under "Online Services".

Visitors/Guests: For information about parking on campus, please click on the "Parking Permits: Short Term" link. 

The SOU Parking Department is self-sustainable, as mandated by the State of Oregon, and does not receive any public or SOU general funds to support it. This is why there is no free parking on campus. The costs of salaries, resurfacing, painting, and regular parking lot maintenance is paid for through parking permit sales, event fees, and citation and meter revenue.

Parking rules on Southern Oregon University property are enforced 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This includes Summer Term and Federally Recognized Holidays. Parking on campus is first come first serve, buying a virtual parking permit does not guarantee you a parking space.
