» Parking Permit or Parking Permit Waiver Registration


Chapman University has a mandatory parking permit policy implemented by the City of Orange. This policy is designed to promote on-campus parking so as to lessen the impact of street parking on the residents of Orange living in close proximity to the university. All university constituents – students, administrators, faculty and staff are required to have a parking permit and park in university owned or operated parking areas.  

Parking Permit Registration - System is now available to register for 2018/19 Annual Parking Permits

Parking Permit Registration System

Once you register, your license plate will be used as validation until your permit arrives in the mail; all permits will be mailed and no longer be available to pick up in person.  Please be sure you verify your mailing address when registering.  Please e-mail Parking and Transportation Services at parking@chapman.edu with questions.

Parking Permit Waiver Registration - System is now available to register for 2018/19 Waivers

Under certain conditions, the parking permit fee can be waived provided a Permit Fee Waiver is submitted online by the deadline and approved by Parking Services. Filing a false waiver and driving a vehicle to campus (including using a city issued Area-A permit to park closer to campus) may result in disciplinary action and/or a parking citation for violating the Parking Policy.

Parking Waiver System

After you have submitted a Waiver Form online (Waiver must be received by the waiver deadline 02/15/2019) please print the confirmation page for your records.  Student accounts will not be credited the parking fee unless the waiver reason is approved by the Parking Services Office.
