» Parking & Transportation Services

Parking & Transportation Services coordinates and regulates the administration of the Parking Policy with respect to vehicle registration and parking enforcement in an effort to provide safe and available parking for all members of the campus community and their guests. We manage the University Shuttle Service for the Chapman owned parking lots and off-site residence complexes as well as oversee the University Rental Fleet.

Valid parking permits are required at all times.  Parking permits are virtual and are validated by license plate cameras.  Click the Permit Registration tab on the left for further information.  Parking areas are restricted/enforced based on permit type.  To review the Parking Policy and Plan, click on the links to the right.  

Parking permits for the 22/23 academic year are available online now.  Valid permits are always required, so make sure to register prior to parking on campus. 

**Resident students, please do not register for your 22/23 parking permit until you have been assigned housing to avoid registering for the incorrect permit.

21/22 parking permits expired on 8/19/22.  If you registered in the summer for a 21/22 permit, you will need to register again for a 22/23 parking permit.
