2019-2020 Virtual Parking Permits are Now Available to Purchase!

Students/Employees: To purchase a permit log into Inside SOU and click on the "Parking" link, located under "Online Services" menu. For further information about campus parking zones and your permit eligibility, please refer to the "Parking Permits: Long Term" tab. 

Visitors/Guests: To learn more information about visitor parking lots and permits (for those who are not current SOU students or employees), please refer to the "Parking Permits: Short Term" tab.

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.
