Parking Decal Information


Decal Information

2016-2017 Parking permit/decals for faculty, staff and commuter students will be available for purchase online through Navigator or Polaris accounts in August 2016. At the time of your online purchase, you will immediately receive a temporary parking pass that is valid for 10 days to use while your decal is shipped.

Resident student parking permit/decals for the 2016-2017 year will go on sale in August. Only those resident students selected via the lottery will be authorized to purchase a permit/decal. Residence life will administer the lottery process and information regarding the lottery will be sent via Salem State email to all eligible resident students.

All permits must be purchased online via Navigator (students) or Polaris (faculty/staff). Permits will not be available for sale at the university police station. Please email with any questions.


Parking Permit Fees for 2016-17

Commuter Annual: $125
Resident Annual: $400
Additional Decal (Commuter) Annual: $125

First year resident students in Peabody and Bowditch are not permitted to have a vehicle on campus. If you have a special circumstance that requires a vehicle, please direct written correspondence to the parking office. The correspondence must include sufficient documentation to justify the need for parking privileges.

Resident students please note: There are a limited number of parking spaces available for resident students and as such not every resident student is guaranteed the ability to purchase a parking decal. Due to space inventory limitations, residence life will coordinate a lottery process to determine which resident students will have the opportunity to purchase a resident student parking decal. 

Student Accounts: New for the 2016-17 academic year, students will have the option of having the cost of their parking permit/decal applied to their student account. Simply select the "Student Account/Tuition Pay" option during checkout. The full cost of the decal will be added to the student bill at the time of purchase. Students will still have the option to pay for their parking permit/decal in full via credit card at the time of purchase. For the Fall semester, this option will be available through 10/5/16.

Replacement cost for original vehicle (if sticker is brought back) is $5.

Decals are nonrefundable.

Decal stickers are processed to prevent theft from vehicle. When peeling decals follow directions and peel off very slowly and carefully. If torn, the replacement cost is $5.
