Student Commuter Permits

Student Commuter Permits are available for sale at a variety of price levels according to where vehicles can park, the number of days per week of usage, and the term length of permits.

Student Commuter Permit descriptions, pricing, and sales locations are listed below.  Note: Commuter permits are not valid for overnight parking.  On-campus residents and vehicles requiring overnight parking must purchase an ‘H’ (Housing) Permit.


  • All Student Commuter Permits are available for purchase through SJSU Parking Online Services and Parking Services office.  Please note: Parking permit is no longer available for sale at the Bursar’s office.
  • Be aware of the effective and expiration dates of all decal and temporary permits to avoid being cited for parking without a valid permit.  Hourly and daily permits may be purchased from paystations when parking at all other times.
  • Following an online permit purchase, please print and display your temporary permit face-up on the front driver-side dashboard of your vehicle.  Temporary permits are available for printing beginning on the effective date of the permit and expire 10 days after the purchase date (and not the printing date).
  • If you do not receive your decal permit in the mail before your temporary permit expires, please visit the Parking Services office to follow up.
