New TWU Parking Regulations

Effective Fall 2013

The TWU Department of Public Safety is implementing a new parking permit registration process effective Fall 2013.   The most significant changes are that parking permits will be issued to the individual rather than the vehicle, and the registration process will be moved online.

Due to the change to the new system, parking permits for the 2013-2014 school year will not be available for purchase until the middle of September 2013.  Permit fees will remain the same for 2013-2014.

Current parking permits will be honored until the new system is implemented.  Students, faculty and staff are asked to voluntarily comply with TWU’s Parking Rules and Regulations, which are detailed here.

To view all of the changes to the parking system, visit the TWU Department of Public Safety Website.
