Parking on Campus

Welcome to Colorado State University Pueblo! 

Job Openings

Did you know? Colorado State statute dictates that our university parking program pays for itself. The Parking and Safety Office does not receive tax or tuition money. The money collected from permit sales and citation fees pays for all parking costs. These costs include new construction, parking lot, sidewalk and road maintenance, signs and enforcement, and parking operations. 

Parking on campus is monitored through a virtual permit system that scans your license plate. All vehicles parked on campus must have a valid CSU Pueblo parking permit. 

All visitors to campus must obtain a parking permit Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 7:00 pm. Permits are available in the Parking Office located in the Administration building, room 118 from 7:00 am - 5:00 pm. 


**If you are an invited guest to campus, please ensure your University Contact obtains a parking permit prior to your arrival. This can be done by supplying your University Contact with your name, contact number, vehicle license plate number, and vehicle information. 

Student, Staff, and Faculty Parking permits are sold online, 24/7, at The Permit Store

Residential Permits are available to students living in campus housing. This permit allows you to park in designated housing parking lots and student parking spots across campus.  University Village at Walking Stick Apartment Residents receives parking lot-specific permits. Only apartment residents are permitted to park in University Village at Walking Stick Apartment parking lots.
