Registration for Parking Permit

Who Must Register?

All students (including part-time, evening & weekend, commuter, and residents), faculty and staff who intend to park a motor vehicle on campus must properly register their vehicle and display the appropriate permit. For the purpose of these regulations, the "campus" is defined as all property, which is under the control of Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Student parking permits are effective from the purchase date to the end of the academic school semester. Faculty/staff permits are effective from the application date to the end of the calendar. A parking permit does not guarantee a parking space.

Wentworth Institute of Technology considers parking as a privilege, which may be revoked temporarily or permanently, for justifiable reasons by the Department of Public Safety. Parking Permits are only available to students, faculty and staff of Wentworth Institute of Technology. WIT parking permits shall not be replicated, lent, sold or transferred to another party. Should a vehicle change occur, the Public Safety office must be advised immediately.

Wentworth Institute of Technology assumes NO liability for lost or stolen property or damage to any vehicle while it is parked on campus in one of our facilities. The University does not assume responsibility or liability for any lost property or damage associated with a vehicle being towed. Hours, rules, and regulations are subject to change without prior notice. A parking permit must always be displayed.
