Parking Permits for 2015-2016

As of  June 1, 2014 all students and Faculty or Staff must present a Nicholls ID  when applying for either a parking permit or a temporary parking pass. All visitors need to have a Drivers License to obtain a visitor’s parking pass. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

You can obtain your Nicholls ID from the Colonel Card Office located in the Student Union.


Driving a different car to campus today? You can now download and print an application for a temporary parking permit. Just fill out the application with your information and the information of the vehicle that you will be driving. Bring your application to our office and we will give you a temporary permit. Each temporary permit issued is valid for that one vehicle for two consecutive weeks. You are allowed to have two free temporary permits per semester only if you have a current decal from that school year. If you have not purchased a decal for the school year and get a temporary permit, you will be charged the full price of a permit. The parking rules for use of a temporary permit are the same as those with a regular permit.
