Parking at Binghamton University is designed to support students, faculty, staff and visitors. See the side tab for more information on parking options and purchasing a virtual permit. Transportation and Parking Services welcome questions and comments about the quality of service.

When parking from 7 a.m. Monday through 4 p.m. Friday, a valid parking permit is needed. Paid parking options are also available in the parking garage, visitors lot and metered spaces.

On the weekends from 4 p.m. Friday until 7 a.m. Monday, no parking permit is needed to park in a valid parking space. Paid spaces and all other parking rules and regulations are also still in effect, including permit designation and overnight parking rules. See the visitor parking page for more information on short-term parking options.

There are a variety of parking options at Binghamton University. Take a look at our campus parking map for directions around campus.
