All University faculty, staff, contract employees and students who wish to park their vehicles in a University-owned parking lot (other than the Olmsted pay lot) for the 2013-2014 school year will need to register their vehicles and purchase a parking hang tag. Parking permits and parking lots are designated as either daily commuter or overnight parking. Parking hang tags will be available for sale beginning August 1, 2013. Hang tags can be purchased in the Cashier’s Office or purchased online for your convenience. Prices and details are listed below. Be sure to purchase the appropriately designated permit and read the signage designation posted on the entrance to each parking lot. The type of permit will determine where you are allowed to park on campus.
**Drake University does not replace lost hang tags or refund the purchase price of lost hang tags.
Overnight Parking Permits:
Only students living in Drake residence halls and the Drake West Village will be allowed to purchase overnight permits. Overnight parking permits will be sold on a “first-come-first-served” basis and will only be issued for the actual number of overnight-designated parking spots (approximately 1,100 spots for 2012-2013).
Daily Commuter Parking Permits:
All non-residence hall students and employees should purchase the daily commuter permit. Given the number of students, employees and visitors on the campus each day, there are simply not enough parking spaces on campus to ensure a convenient parking spot for every daily commuter permit sold.
Where to Buy Permits:
Effective August 1, 2013, students, faculty and staff are encouraged to register their vehicles and purchase hang tags online via blueView. You may also purchase hangtags in the Cashier’s Office, 115 Old Main, during regular business hours beginning August 1, 2013.
Commuter students purchasing online will be mailed their hangs tags to the address on the vehicle registration up to 2 weeks prior to the start of the term. After that date, the hang tags will be available for pick up in the Cashiers Office.
Students living in the residence halls have the option of purchasing their hang tags online as well and are encouraged to do so, but their hang tags will not be mailed and must be picked up in the Cashier’s Office the next business day, 115 Old Main on or after August 26, 2013.
Faculty and Staff hang tags purchased online can be picked up in the Cashier’s Office the following business day, during regular business hours beginning August 2, 2013. These hang tags will not be mailed through inter-office mail.
The link to purchase your parking hang tag can be found on the My Drake Account tab in blueView, My Drake Account Tab, Parking Tools Channel. Students, faculty, and staff may also purchase hang tags at the Cashier’s Office, Room 115 Old Main, during normal business hours beginning August 1, 2013.
Owners of vehicles parked in Drake-owned lots without the hang tag will be subject to a $25 fine and possible towing at owner's expense. If the parking fine is not paid within 30 days of receiving it, an additional $15.00 late fee will be assessed.
If you have questions regarding this process, contact the Cashier’s Office at 515-271-3805. A copy of updated parking regulations can be found online at the Parking Tools Channel in blueView or by clicking Parking. **Drake University does not replace lost hang tags or refund the purchase price of lost hang tags.
