Parking

Salem State University has permitted parking areas available on each of its five campuses. All vehicles parked on university property must be properly permitted. Parking permit decals will be available for purchase online through your Navigator or Polaris account beginning mid-August of each year. Vehicles that are not parked within the designated permit area are subject to ticketing and towing. In an effort to ensure compliance with the university parking regulations, the university police department has added dedicated parking enforcement officers. If you have any questions on this matter please send an email to parking@salemstate.edu.
