3. Apply for your parking permit

To apply for a parking permit, take your ND ID card and license plate number with you to the Parking Services office in Hammes Mowbray Hall, just northwest of Grace Hall.

Alternative: Once your University Net ID is active, log in to insideND (ND Net ID and password required) and apply for your parking permit through the iNDcars link (in the Quick Links channel). Present your ND ID card at the Parking Services office to pick up your permit.

Permits must be renewed each academic year.

Your safety is important to us. Familiarize yourself with the emergency evacuation procedure(s) in your building or area. More safety information is available, including the services provided by the NDSP and the ND Emergency Alert System at The Crime Prevention tab includes videos and other resources that help minimize your exposure to risk.
