Parking & Transportation

Fall 2023 decals are on sale starting July 15, 2023. Please follow this link to the parking portal to purchase your decal. You will use your Tiger World credentials to log into the parking portal. Please also read the Parking Policies, Regulations, Citations, and Appeals booklet for more information on where and when you can park on campus.

Please check this site frequently for regulation changes. Parking Citation appeals are not granted on the basis of being unfamiliar with the regulations. You can also check our instagram account for updates.

Please note that reserved parking spaces are marked by signage. These spaces are reserved 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you park in a reserved parking space that you have not purchased from the university, your vehicle will be ticketed, booted, and/or towed. Regular parking and traffic rules apply on campus. Rules and regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Parking permit charges and updated ticketing prices can be located on our Cost of Attendance webpage.

*Faculty/Staff decals may be paid for through payroll deduction. Log into "My Parking Account" to access this form.

Commuter students who have valid student permits and faculty/staff who have valid faculty/staff permits from other University System of Georgia institutions are not required to purchase a Savannah State permit. Those vehicles with these permits must be parked in the spaces designated for commuter students and faculty/staff, respectively.  If the institution does not issue a physical permit, a temporary permit from SSU must be purchased.

How do I purchase a parking permit?

All students and employees who park on campus must log in to their Parking Account online at to register their car, and purchase a permit (regardless of method of payment). 

Available parking lots are designated for each of the seven parking categories (Commuter, Contractor/Vendor, Faculty/Staff, Reserved, University Village, University Commons, Tiger Court, Wright Hall, General Residential,  and Retiree). Parking is restricted to the designated lots on class days during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Resident students: During restricted hours, resident students must park in their assigned lots. 

After restricted hours, resident students may park in any lot on campus, as long as it is not in a reserved or otherwise designated space (ADA/handicap, service vehicles, etc.), except for the Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking lot, which requires a Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking permit at all times (24/7). Students with a Wright Hall/Tiger Court parking permit may park in any General Residential space if the lot is full.

Vehicles with decals of any assignment can park in the following lots at any time: Student Union, extended Kennedy lot, behind Wilcox-Wiley, Bostic Hall, and the Tiger Express lot.

Do not park on the yellow curbs, in the grass, or in marked/reserved spaces in the Wright Hall/Tiger Court lot. If violated, vehicles will be towed. Do not park at bus station blocking gates or ramps. Your vehicle will be towed at your expense. 

Decals for parking in Tiger Court/Wright Hall lot are limited to the number of spaces in the lot; living in these residence halls does NOT entitle you to park there without a valid Tiger Court/Wright Hall decal. If the Wright Hall decals are sold out, you can purchase a General Residential decal. You are not able to park in the Wright Hall parking lot without a Wright Hall decal. 

Commuter Students: you may park in any lot designated for commuter students during restricted hours.  After 4 p.m., you may park in any non-residential space that is not reserved. Commuter students may not park in residence hall parking lots at any time.

Faculty and staff: If you have a faculty/staff permit, you may park in any lot designated for faculty and staff, as long as you do not park in a space specifically designated for students within those lots.  If you have a reserved space, you may park in any other legal spot on campus that is not another reserved spot.

How is parking enforced?

Parking is enforced by Savannah State University's Department of Auxiliary Services and Parking Services. Parking rules and regulations, permits, parking pass information, and citations are found in the linked document  Parking Policies, Regulations, Citations, and Appeals. You have the right to appeal any citation online within 10 days. After 10 calendar days, the right to appeal is forfeited.

Regardless if an appeal is submitted or not, the citation to which it pertains is due and payable when the citation was issued. Employees will be charged for any unpaid citations when they leave university employment.
