Students (Resident, Graduate and Commuter

AUM continues to grow, which means our campus is busier than ever. Additionally, access to our campus is not restricted by gates or boundaries. So, in the interest of safety for our students, faculty and staff, and visitors and guests, and to accommodate the growing need for parking, AUM has adopted this new Parking Policy.

General permits for non-resident students will be charged to student accounts. Resident Student parking permit fees are included in their housing fees.

Yes. Because your permit does not expire until the beginning of the next academic year, AUM cannot deduct the remaining cost if you do not return after the fall semester. 

However, students who start classes during the spring semester or register for summer classes will have the cost of their parking permits prorated for the remainder of the academic year.
