Student Permits

Purchase a Permit

Students can purchase parking permits online. You will need your PODS ID and password to login. A vehicle must be registered with the University before parking on campus or it must be parked in a paid space. To register your vehicle and purchase a permit, log into your account and follow the instructions. 

TAPS has integrated a new parking software that utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR). LPR is a plate-recognition technology that associates parking permits to a license plate and not a decal or hangtag.  

After purchasing a permit online a confirmation will be emailed. Once the confirmation is received the permit is active. This software also allows you to update your vehicle information and add additional vehicles to your permit from your online account. Only one vehicle associated with a permit may be on campus at a time. 

Proximity card permits (garage and paid lot) for students must be purchased in the Parking Services office located in the basement of the Administration building.

Permit Display

TAPS has integrated a new parking software that utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR). LPR, is a plate-recognition technology that associates parking permits to a license plate and not a sticker decal or hangtag.

License plates must be visible from the drive lane for LPR to work properly. If you are from a state that does not require a front license plate, for example Pennsylvania, vehicles must be pulled into a space nose first. A one time warning will be issued for this offense.

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.
