Student Parking

We are pleased to announce that the student parking lot permits for the Fall 2021 semester will go on sale beginning Monday, August 23, 2021. The on-line system is open and ready for your use. Please note that student parking rate structure remains unchanged from the previous semesters. The rates are $75 for day permits and $55 for evening only permits. The day permit grants full access to the student parking in both the day and evening hours. Whereas, the evening only permit allows for access to the student parking lot after 5:15 pm. Only students registered for the Fall 2021 term are eligible to purchase the Fall 2021 student parking decal. Please consider your planned usage when selecting the type of permit you would like to purchase, since all parking fees are nonrefundable. The permits can only be used by the student whose name the permit is in and only while they are on campus.

If you are a registered student for the Fall 2021 term and wish to purchase a parking permit, payment can be made online beginning Monday, August 23, 2021. To make a payment using Visa or MasterCard including VISA and Mastercard debit cards please visit If this is not possible, you will need to contact the Bursar’s Office at and they will post a parking charge to your account so that payment can be made via CUNYfirst. Due to our remote status, online payments are the preferred method and will speed up the processing of your permit. On account of the pandemic, the college is relaxing the requirement that all outstanding financial obligations be paid in full before a registered student can purchase a parking permit for the Fall 2021 semester only. We expect this requirement to return for the Spring 2022 term.

Once you have paid for your permit, your decal will be programmed remotely, if you have had parking privileges previously. Please be sure to include your correct CUNYfirst EMPLID on the online payment site, since this is the unique identifier we need to program your current ID card to grant access to the parking lot. After programming, you will be notified via email from the Office of
Campus Activities to pick up your parking decal at the public safety security command station, located at Gate 5. Please know that you will be required to show your parking decal receipt, proof that you are a Fall 2021 registered student and identification card in order to pick up you Fall 2021 parking decal. If this will be your first-time parking in the lot, please contact Public Safety for information regarding issuance of dual access ID card at 718-960-7777. All parking permits must be displayed in the vehicle while parked in any of the college’s parking lots. Cars that do not display a permit will be ticketed. Please remember that there are no refunds.

Parking is on a first come, first served basis, however we do not expect the lots to be as crowded as the pre-COVID semesters. For more information please see Fall 2021 Student Parking Memo.

Parking Procedures and Regulations

There is "No Parking: in the following areas at all times:
  • Any "Reserved Space"
    • Any "Handicapped space" unless:
    • N.Y.S. Disabled License Permit or Plate.
  • Doctors note authorized by the Public Safety Department.
  • In front of a fire hydrant.
  • Entrances or Exits.
  • Any "Restricted Area"
  • Students are only permitted to park on campus for academic purposes.
  • Vehicles parked in violation will be towed at owner's own expense.


The College provides Campus Peace Officers for the safety of persons and property. All persons using the campus parking facilities are expected to cooperate with the officers by accepting their directions and suggestions. Officers will place tickets on all vehicles in violation of parking regulations.

As many of you are aware, an unsafe condition exists as students, faculty, and staff attempt to cross the street on Goulden Avenue to access the South Parking Lot. The condition is being created by a constant flow of double-parked cars that impede both vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.

To alleviate this condition, the Public Safety Department will issue “double-parking Summons”. Our intention with this initiative is not to cause inconvenience to any member of the College Community but rather to provide a safer environment in that area.


Please be advised that failure to pay parking violations summonses may result in the revocation of your campus parking privileges, deactivation of your dual card and, for students a negative service indicator will be placed on your CUNYfirst account. Anyone who repeatedly violates College parking regulations will forfeit their privilege of using the College parking facilities, and will be reported to the proper College authorities.

Should it become necessary to remove a vehicle which is found to be in violation of parking regulations, the owner will be liable for all expenses incurred.

If your vehicle is TOWED, report to the Public Safety Department for all the information needed to retrieve your vehicle. The 50th and 52nd Police Precincts (according to where the vehicle is parked) will be notified of the towing occurrence.
