Visitor/Temporary/Overnight Parking

​​​​​​​​​​​Parking Permits


Visitors to the Providence College Campus are eligible to park on campus at no cost but only after receiving a temporary parking pass from the Office of Safety and Security.

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 visitor to park on campus but does not guarantee a parking space.

Overnight Guests:

Students need to register their guests online with Residence Life at least 48 hours in advance. Any guests of students wishing to park their vehicle on the Providence College campus must obtain authorization from the Office of Safety and Security.

To obtain a pass:

The Providence College student must accompany their guest to the Security Office. A Providence College ID and their guest’s license must be shown for identification. The vehicle will be logged in and assigned to a parking location. A weekend overnight permit will be valid Friday and Saturday night and will expire at 12:00 midnight on Sunday.

PC students accept full responsibility for the actions of their guest.

Passes must be hung from the rear view mirror and be visible at all times. The pass is not to be transferred to another person.
