How to Acquire a Parking Permit

Vehicle registration for the 2023-24 academic year does not begin until June 15.

All employees and students who wish to have a vehicle on campus must register their vehicle with Student Life.

Parking pass priority is given to students based on 1) date of entry and; 2) earned college credit hours.

Note on the Silver Day Pass: If a Silver commuter pass holder has a school-sponsored overnight trip, the silver pass holder may park in the Belk parking lot. If ticketed, the student may appeal.

Freshman who are living in Honors Lodges are eligible for a Gold pass.

With limited parking on the Montreat campus, new students (first time freshman and transfers in August) will be eligible for the blue parking pass. (Freshman student status is defined by 29 or fewer earned college credits). Should additional gold spaces become available, the Student Life office will maintain a waitlist, and priority will be given to transfer students. The college does provide a shuttle service for students to get to Black Mountain and the Black Mountain campus to access his/her vehicle in the designated Blue parking areas.

Remember that all cars must be registered.

A shuttle will transport students to and from the Black Mountain parking locations at regular intervals. The shuttle schedule may be found here.

If you are not bringing a car to campus, please fill out the No Car on Campus Form. Please make sure to complete the form before September 1, 2023 for the Fall 2023 semester.
