NKU Students, Staff, and Faculty will use their NKU credentials to log in, and then can update their vehicle information and order a standard permit. After completing the order, your permit will be available for pickup at the Parking Services office in the Welcome Center.

Visitor Permits

Please visit our Visitor Parking page for information on where to park and purchasing printable permits for using the surface lots.

Faculty/Staff Payroll Deductions

If you are a current Faculty/Staff member and do not plan to renew your permit, it is your responsibility to contact Human Resources to stop any further payroll deductions from occurring.


Did You Know?

To purchase a parking permit in office you must provide a valid photo ID and license plate number.

All students operating a motor vehicle on University property must register the vehicle with Parking Services.

It is widely believed that one can park anywhere after 6 p.m. without a permit. This is not true and many have incurred fines because of it.

Parking Services issues citations at all times with the exception of "out of zone" citations which are issued until 6 p.m.
