Student Parking Permit

Marietta College Students are issued a student parking permit. Parking permits for commuter students are also available. Students are permitted to park in any lot that is labeled for their respective parking permit. Parking in yellow lots or within spaces marked with yellow paint is reserved for faculty and staff members. Students are not permitted to park in lots that are designated “Faculty/Staff only” at any time, or they will be subject to being cited or towed at the owner's expense.

Displaying Your Permit

Student parking permits, as well as dining services and bookstore employees, must be displayed in the rear window on the lower passenger's side corner. Marietta College employees must display their permit on their rearview mirror with the permit number facing out. Temporary permits will be placed on the dashboard. Citations may be issued for improper permit placement. Check signs at the lot entrances to see if you are permitted to park in the lot.

Temporary and Visitor Parking Permit

On occasion, students may have a guest or need to have their own vehicle repaired, making their own sticker unavailable to them. Students may come to the Marietta College Police Department office to obtain a temporary parking permit at no cost.

Visitor permits can be obtained at the Marietta College Police Department office. Anyone parking a vehicle in a campus lot must display a parking permit. Short-term visitor spaces are located at Fayerweather Hall. All vehicles without a permit may be towed at the owner's expense.
