This page is used for Gonzaga University faculty or staff or outside parties hosting on-campus events requesting temporary parking permits to park at Gonzaga University-owned parking lots. It is primarily for larger groups who will attend pre-planned events on campus.
Individual permits for shorter visits may be obtained from 4 different locations on campus during their normal operating hours: Campus Security & Public Safety (503 E. Sharp), the Admissions Visit Office (located just inside the front doors of College Hall), or from either library's circulation desk (the Foley Center Library or the Chastek Law Library). Temporary parking permits are not required in visitor stalls on campus, although numbered visitor parking stalls in campus parking lots may require the vehicle owner/operator to sign in at the appropriate office. Numbered visitor parking stalls are located at the College Hall parking lot, Jundt Art Museum stalls (Jundt Art Museum), the Law School lot (Law Admissions Office or Law Clinic), and PACCAR stalls (PACCAR room 211). There are also visitor stalls on the 1st and 3rd floors of the BARC parking garage.
We require temporary parking permit request forms at least one week prior to your event, so please plan ahead! The fields below are required to submit a request. CSPS will try to accommodate your request to the best of its ability, but does reserve the right to refuse or change the requested parameters of the temporary parking permit if necessary. In this event, we will attempt to notify the requestor ahead of time.
The following are some helpful suggestions for filling out the fields below:
Campus Area Valid:
We generally direct large groups of visitors to the larger, green-designated campus parking lots. These lots are easiest to find, provide the greatest availability of parking spaces, and offer the least disruption to faculty/staff (red) or residence hall (yellow) parking.
The green-designated campus parking lots are:
- "BARC" BARC Parking garage, 3rd & 4th floors - At the corner of Boone and Hamilton, northeast of Hemmingson.
- "MC" Martin Centre - North of the Centennial trail, excluding the red east McCarthey Center lot and the red area in the extreme NW corner of the Martin Centre lot.
- "SCHO" Schoenberg Center - West side of Schoenberg Center, at the southernmost end of Pearl Street.
If you need your visitors to park somewhere other than these lots, please make reference to it in the "comments" section of the request form.
It is acceptable to request temporary parking permits for more than one date depending on your event(s) (for example weekly or monthly meetings). We try to limit carte blanche parking permits to prevent abuse, (i.e. "park anywhere, all year long"), but we recognize that some temporary parking permits are needed on the same vehicle for more than one date.
Keep in mind that after you receive your temporary parking permits, the actual vehicle owner/operator will still need to fill out the required fields for "Vehicle Information" or he/she may receive a citation while parked on campus. It would be helpful if he/she also filled out "Vehicle Owner/Operator" and "Owner/Operator Cell Phone". CPS&S will include a reminder note with completed temporary parking permits to the requestor so they can remind visitors. Guests should place the permit on the front driver's side dashboard of their vehicles while parked on Gonzaga property.
Once your temporary parking permit is prepared, you will receive it electronically.
