Parking permits are required for vehicles that park on the GVSU Campus. Graduate, Alumni, Faculty/Staff, and Community Memberships can get a parking permit by showing their current membership card and driver’s license to the Public Safety Office 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. These permits will be valid for the current semester only and will need to be replaced each semester. The sole use of this permit is for non-academic field house recreational facilities use. It may not be used for any other purpose including events or academic classes. The permit is the property of the Grand Valley State University Department of Public Safety.
Permits may not be sold, altered or copied in any way. Lost or stolen permits must be reported immediately to Public Safety. Unauthorized or improper use of this permit will result in its confiscation, and may result in criminal and university penalties. Fraudulently obtaining goods or services is a crime, punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a fine of not more than $2,000.00.
