All vehicles parked on campus MUST display a valid PVAMU parking permit. A University parking permit is required to park on the Prairie View A&M University campus seven days a week. All hang tags should be suspended from the vehicle’s rear view mirror with the entire permit visible through the front windshield from outside the vehicle. Motorcycles permits are self-adhering and must be permanently affixed to the rear of the bike, as close to the license plate as possible.

Persons with physical disabilities may request a handicap permit and will be issued a special parking permit. Sufficient documentation of disability must be provided by a physician. The final decision will be made by the University health officers located in Disability Services in Evans Hall Room 317. Limited parking space governs the distribution of permits to those most in need. The cost of the permit is the same as a regular faculty, staff and Student permit.

All contract employees must pay for parking permit renewal at the beginning of each fiscal year in September.  Employees working contract on campus must pay in full for the entire year to receive permit unless, contractor allows payroll deductions to their employees.

Permits may be transferred from vehicle to vehicle.

Should the owner of a self-adhering permit have occasion to bring a different vehicle to campus, a temporary visitors permit should be purchased and displayed prior to parking on campus.
