Parking Policy Implementation

Columbus State University continually strives to improve safety and security on campus for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We also look for ways to assess our processes to see if adjustments are needed for improvement. In order to improve campus security and provide additional university police officers on campus, we are implementing a new parking system for students, faculty, and staff that will include a new parking office and a decal fee.

The annual cost of the parking permits will be $45 for students, $90 for faculty/staff, and $180 for reserved parking decals. Hang tag fees are payable by check, credit card, or money order only.

Please note that after July 5, 2017, every vehicle that parks on campus will be required to display a valid CSU parking permit or visitor's pass. Visitor parking spaces will be monitored to prevent students, faculty, and staff from parking in these reserved spaces. The parking permit requirement also includes parking in all university owned lots, decks, and parking spaces on CSU's RiverPark campus.

TIP: Bring your vehicle registration with you. The information on the registration card will help answer some of the questions we ask.

Departments requesting visitor passes should e-mail We will respond within 2 business days. Vehicle information including the make, model, color, and license plate information is required to issue visitor parking passes.
