Who Must Obtain a Parking Permit?
All students, faculty, staff, part-time and contractual employees, vendors, contractors, telecommuters, visitors and guests must obtain a parking permit to be allowed to park a vehicle on the Bowie State University campus.
Parking Permits:To obtain a parking permit for the current year, fees may be paid at the Office of Student Accounts, or, by calling 1-866-364-5826 the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) to pay over the phone (your student I.D. or staff employee I.D.is required to process this transaction), or, students, faulty or staff may pay with their Bowie Card at the Department of Public Safety (DPS) Communications Office in Robinson Hall or the DPS Parking Office in McKeldin Gym if funds are available on the Bowie Card.
The valid receipt or confirmation number is given to the DPS Parking Office located in Robinson Hall or McKeldin Gym; an Application for a Parking Permit is filled out; and the permit is issued. A refund will be issued only if a scheduled class has been canceled and that is the only class in which the student is enrolled.
Special Medical Arrangements:
To utilize a handicapped space on campus, a driver must purchase a BSU parking permit and meet the State requirements to obtain a disability placard or handicap license plate.
Valid Parking Permit:
A permit is valid only when it corresponds to the license plate number registered at the BSU Parking Office; displayed properly, visible, and not suspended, altered, or revoked. A parking permit is transferable only to vehicles listed on the registration card. If the permit is affixed to an unregistered vehicle, the owner of the vehicle will be subject to a $100 fine, and the owner of the permit is subject to revocation of parking privileges (with no refund). All permits must hang from the rearview mirror with the expiration date visible from the front of the vehicle. Motorcycles must be registered.
