Please note: Parking on campus without a valid permit will lead to ticketing. Three or more violations can result in an immobilization boot being placed on your vehicle or your vehicle being towed at your cost without warning.

Saint Mary’s University will not issue a valid parking permit until ALL outstanding tickets have been paid. Unpaid tickets may be assigned directly to your student account without notice.

General Above Ground 

Includes a limited number of Single Student Housing and Family & Graduate Housing overnight parking permits. Overnight parking for SMU campus residents is only available in the Rice Residence parking lot. 

Purchasing a general above ground parking permit does not guarantee a parking space. We suggest arriving on campus as early as possible, leaving yourself with enough time to try and find a space in one of our 8 parking lots. Keep in mind that general permits are not valid at parking meters, pay & display spaces, in faculty designated spaces or in the Homburg Members Only parking lot.

  • 8 month permit - $290
