  9. There have always been parking spaces available. Sometimes they are on the outer edges of campus. This sometimes requires a 5 or 10 minute walk. To find a space close plan to arrive early. A PERMIT DOES NOT GUARANTEE A PARKING SPACE. It allows you to park on campus in a legal spot.
  10. PARKING SPACES - Parking services does not build anything. We simply administer the parking space that exist on campus. More parking space requires more and higher fees. EIU tries to maintain a balance between cost and availability.

  12. Unpaid parking tickets are transferred to the Business Office at the end of each semester. PARKING FINES THAT ARE NOT PAID WILL KEEP YOU FROM REGISTERING AND RECEIVING TRANSCRIPTS. Anyone that disregards parking regulations tramples on the right of others to park in their assigned spaces. You can AVOID ALL FINES by complying with the rules.
