Resident Student Permit Rates
Effective Sept. 1, 2017
Resident student permits
 ‘RES’ daily scratcher sales are not available to the general public and are limited to six per person per month. Stanford affiliation required.
Students who live on campus can buy permits for their designated house or dorm areas, but are NOT allowed to purchase 'A,' or 'C' commuter permits. You're only allowed to keep one motorized vehicle on campus unless you're in couples or family housing.
Resident student parking is divided into the following areas: West, South, East, SJ, and Escondido Village. See the Parking and Circulation Map for the locations of these areas. Each permit is valid only in its area.
- You can make installment payments on a yearly permit either through recurring debit/charge service.
- Permit ordering, payment, and delivery options are listed on our How to Purchase page.
- The Parking and Circulation / Campus Map shows where each permit type is valid.
You can buy a regular Resident permit and park in a full space, or get a Motorcycle/Scooter permit which is good only in 'MC' spaces. If you're single and own both a motorcycle and a car, you'll need to leave one at home.
Resident Visitor Permits
Resident student lots are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In order to park in these lots, visitors will need to have a one-day 'Resident' scratcher permit, valid until noon the next day. Residents in Stanford student housing are eligible to purchase up to six scratchers per month.
