Student Permits

Purchase a Permit

Students can purchase parking permits online. You will need your PODS ID and password to login. All students are required to register their vehicles. A vehicle must be registered before parking on campus or it must be parked in a paid space. 

If you intend to buy a permit online, your vehicle must be registered with the University. To do so, email a clear, readable copy of your vehicle registration along with your full name and B# to parking@binghamton.edu. Insurance information and titles are not needed. Your vehicle will then be added to your account within two business days or less. Sign on to your account to confirm the addition. A return email will not be sent. 

Day permits, month permits, proximity card permits (garage and paid lot), any payroll deducted permit, service hangtags and decals, and motorcycle permits for students must all be purchased in the Parking Services office located in the basement of the Administration building.

Special Note for Veteran Students

Students who are veterans, and who show us a copy of their DD214, can purchase a full-year and semester permit by paying the $25 registration fee. If your permit choices show any amount other than $0 in the permit fee column, you will need to show us a copy of your DD214. Once this is complete, you will be able to purchase your permit online at the reduced rate for the remainder of your time at Binghamton University without showing any further paperwork.

Special Note for GSEU Members

GSEU members whose paperwork has been processed by their department, can buy permits online at the discounted price and have the permit mailed to the address of their choice.

Single semester GSEU members can only buy the semester permit, Fall or Spring as appropriate, at the discounted rate. Full year permits are still at the full year price.

Continuous one year GSEU members, can buy the full year permit at the discounted rate. Semester permits are still at the full semester price.

GSEU members who hold one position during the Fall and then a different one in the Spring will need to contact Parking Services at 607-777-2279 or send an email to parking@binghamton.edu. If we see that there is funding for both the Fall and Spring, we will set the classification to Annual GSEU and the GSEU member will be able to buy online at the discounted annual rate.
