Student Parking Decals (Resident & Commuter)

1.  RESIDENT — Students residing on campus in Truman State University housing are issued GREEN Resident parking decals. If a student’s residency changes, the resident decal must be removed and returned to Parking Services prior to an off-campus or commuter decal being issued. Green Resident lots are strictly for the use of residence hall and apartment housing occupants. Parking in these lots is enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

2.  COMMUTER — Students commuting or living off-campus will be issued BLUE Commuter parking decals. If a student’s residency changes, the commuter decal must be removed and returned to Parking Services prior to a resident decal being issued.  The Blue Commuter lots are enforced 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

3.  PARK & SAVE — This GOLD parking decal is available at a considerable savings – $50. The Gold Park & Save parking decal is allowed to park in ONLY two parking lots located at the south end of campus.  Those two lots are Stokes Stadium parking lot and the parking lot north of the tennis courts just off Florence Street.  Individuals who purchase a GOLD parking decal may upgrade to a resident or commuter parking decal (dependent on residency per the guidelines listed above). The GOLD decal would need to be removed from the vehicle and returned to Parking Services and the difference of $80 will be assessed during the Fall semester.  The upgrade price will be prorated as indicated by the schedule listed.
