Parking and Public Safety
All students on main campus are required to have a parking decal for the vehicle they operate. All parking on campus is marked with lines. Areas not marked with lines is not a parking spot.
How do I obtain a decal?
Go to AP OneStop, select Self Service, click “Student,” parking decal application, request parking decal and follow the instructions. Although you may register your vehicle online you must physically pickup your decal from the Shasteen Building. Decals are also available at Public Safety/Campus Police (Shasteen Building), and at peak times the Morgan University Center Information Desk.
Note: Please be aware of the expiration date when you print your temporary pass and pick up your new decal at the Campus police station.
How much is the decal?
Student access fees cover the cost of the decal.
What if I use more than one vehicle?
The University uses a hanging decal system rather than an adhesive sticker. This allows the decal to be moved and used with any vehicle the registered person operates. Because of this flexibility and the limited parking on campus, each person is entitled to only one decal. Exceptions are made for married housing-student families with two licensed drivers, and in other extraordinary circumstances.
What if I get ticketed on campus?
