RRO Locations



On-Campus Parking for RRO

Students and guests are able to park on-campus for free during orientation by registering their vehicle.

A parking registration link will be sent to each attendee one week before your session with instructions to register your vehicle.  Vehicles not registered may receive a parking citation and could possibly be towed.

Please note: Registering your vehicle for parking during RRO is different than registering your vehicle for on-campus parking during the academic year. 
To purchase your parking permit for the academic year, visitTransportation & Parking Services

Rental Cars

If you are renting a car and do not know your license plate number, you can register for parking on-site.  However, if you do know your license plate, it is STRONGLY encouraged that you register your vehicle before coming to campus.

ADA Parking

Parking in other lots, reserved spaces, or in fire lanes will result in a parking citation. All handicap parking spots on campus are available to registered vehicles with a current handicap permit that is displayed in the vehicle.
