Temporary + Visitor Passes
Campus Safety & Security issues FREE, temporary parking permits to students and their guests for up to 5 days of use. After 5 days, a university permit must be purchased.
Temporary permits are issued to guests in the host student's name. Violations issued to "guest vehicles" will be charged to the host student.
When applying for a temporary permit, guests must be accompanied by a host student. While on campus, guests are expected to observe the university's parking rules/regulations. Temporary permits must be clearly visible, and are valid only in designated parking areas.
Temporary permits must be returned to Campus Safety & Security upon expiration.
Parking permits are non-refundable and are only transferable to an alternate vehicle of the original owner with Campus Safety & Security’s prior approval. Find more information on student vehicles on campus in JWU’s Student Handbook.
