Resident Students

There is currently a waitlist for Resident Fall and Annual Student Parking Permits. Please scroll down for more information about permits and instructions on how to join the waitlist. 

General Info

Enrolled Loyola students who are in their second year or above and living in a Loyola residence hall can apply for a resident parking permit. 

Loyola University Chicago is an urban campus with extremely limited parking space. We do not guarantee a parking permit to anyone, at any time. We strongly encourage considering alternative transportation options such as public transit, biking, walking, or ridesharing. 

Resident permits are extremely limited and awarded on a first come, first served basis to those who meet the above eligibility requirements. We strongly encourage you to apply as early as possible in order to increase your chances of getting a permit. Please note that submission of an application does not guarantee you a space. You have not been granted a space unless Campus Transportation sends you an approval email with a specific parking assignment. 

Resident permit holders are assigned to a specific lot on the Lake Shore Campus (please scroll down for a list of resident lots). Resident permits include overnight parking. 

You must be registered for classes in order to apply for a parking permit. Please scroll down for instructions on how to Apply for a Permit. Please be advised, students with two or more outstanding vehicle violations on their account are not eligible for a Loyola parking permit- such applications will be waitlisted until all fines have been paid.
