Parking Services

Campus Parking

There are ‘dedicated’ parking spaces in every lot for students, faculty, and staff.  These spaces are clearly marked with signs and are available on a first-come-first-served basis.  Purchasing a permit for the year or the term allows you to park in an appropriate dedicated parking space.

EOU parking permits are required on all campus streets and in all campus parking lots.

  • Most parking regulations are enforced Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Some, like ADA spaces, are enforced 24/7, 365 days a year.
  • EOU parking permits are not required on weekends or holidays except around the resident halls.
  • Permits are required around the resident halls at all times.
  • EOU permits are not required for vehicles with a valid, state-issued ADA permit.
  • EOU permits are not required to park outside the boundaries of campus or in the Community Stadium parking lot.

Parking Citations & Appeals

Parking citations are issued Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The fine for parking without a permit is $25.

An appeal of a parking citation may be submitted to the Parking Appeals committee for review. The committee has students, staff and faculty members who hear the appeal and render a decision.  To appeal a traffic citation, you must either fill out this online form or submit a Parking Citation Appeal Form to the Parking Appeals Committee.

Forms may be delivered to the Student Accounts office in Inlow Hall 101 or emailed to parkingappeals@eou.edu.

If you have any questions or concerns about parking on the EOU campus, please call Campus Security at (541) 962-3911.
