All faculty and staff members are eligible to park on campus at no cost but only after applying for and receiving a parking sticker. These stickers will be valid for the entire academic school year.
Parking and operating a motor vehicle, on the Providence College campus, is a privilege, not a right, and constitutes acceptance by the individual of the responsibility to ensure that his or her vehicle is neither parked nor operated in violation of any of the College regulations.
A parking permit allows a faculty and staff member to park on campus but does not guarantee a parking space.
Newly hired faculty or staff may apply for a parking permit at any time.
PLEASE NOTE: You may only apply for a PC parking permit from an on-campus computer. These computers are located in the computer labs; Koffler, Accinno, and Albertus Magnus, or in the Library.
All mandatory fields must be completed so that the application process can successfully proceed. Print and retain the voucher (final page in application process) for your records.
IMPORTANT: Permits can only be obtained through the below link and will be issued by the Office of Safety and Security.
Stickers must be placed on the lower part of the driver’s side windshield. The sticker is not to be removed or transferred. A replacement sticker may be obtained for a newly purchased vehicle or a replacement windshield at the Office of Safety and Security.

Due to inclement weather, students and faculty/staff are advised to call the weather line at 865-1012 for information regarding school closings and class cancellations. In the event of a snow emergency, vehicles need to be moved and students and faculty/staff must listen to the snow line instructions in order to know when plowing will be conducted in each parking lot.
