Parking on Campus
Parking spots are available in seven campus locations for a fee. Students must complete a student vehicle parking permit application and pay the full amount prior to being considered for available parking permits. An early registration period has been established to allow returning students to request vehicle parking by class seniority on a first come, first served basis. After the designated early registration period ends all parking is awarded on a first come, first served basis with no deference to class seniority.
Yearly parking registration fees range from $150 to $400. Parking permit applications and fees are accepted online through the myRipon portal.
