Parking Operations Information:

The Parking Operations has transitioned to virtual permits for visitors and guests.  This change will allow guest/visitor permission to be relayed to field personnel in real-time, and will help reduce citations issued in error to registered vehicles.  Additional information will follow later this year outlining how this change will impact faculty/staff permit holders.

Effective immediately, the following information will be required for all guest/visitor parking permission:

  • Vehicle License plate number
  • Name of vehicle operator
  • Make of vehicle
  • Model of vehicle
  • Desired parking location
  • Length of visit (in days)


  • Mobile contact number for vehicle operator (used for emergency/urgent communication)

Requests without all of the required information cannot be processed. The preferred method to request parking permission is by email – parking@cortland.edu.  Permission may be requested in advance of visit.
