Registering Your Vehicle
Current Faculty, Staff, and Students
All faculty, staff, and students must register their vehicles with the Department of Public Safety at plnu.thepermitstore.com. Failure to register your vehicle may result in a fine and/or your vehicle being towed. All of this information can be found in the University Vehicle Code.

Register online at The Permit Store; click "Order A Permit" and then log in to iParq using your PLNU username and password. Once you complete your permit order, you will receive an e-mail from Public Safety confirming your order. When your application is approved, you will also be able to print out a temporary permit to place on your dashboard. All vehicles (cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters) must be registered. Note: The registration process is NOT complete until the permit is issued from Public Safety and the decal is installed on the inside lower left portion of the windshield of your vehicle.
You have seven (7) calendar days from the start of the semester to register your vehicle. Public Safety sends out e-mail reminders at the start of the semester.
After you place your order at plnu.thepermitstore.com, you will receive your permit based on your permit type.
Resident students: delivered via campus mail to your residence hall.
Commuter students: pick up at Public Safety office.
Motorcycle/Scooter: pick up at Public Safety office.
RA & ROTC: pick up at Public Safety office.
Faculty & Staff: delivered via campus mail to your office or department assistant.
All student parking permits must be renewed each year. Permits are active from the date issued until the expiration date or until deactivate by Public Safety. Employee permits are active until employment at PLNU ends.
Students are also responsible to update vehicle information in their iParq accounts when changing or replacing vehicles or when a new license plate is obtained, the same way you would with the DMV. Students must also update vehicle permits if they change residence from on-campus to off-campus or vice versa. For any questions about updating your iParq account information, contact Public Safety at 619-849-2201.
Yes. All vehicles must display a valid parking permit to park on campus. We offer a temporary parking permit for rental cars or borrowing a car from family or friends. Temporary parking permits can be obtained at the Public Safety office.
You can log in to iParq using your PLNU username and password. You will not be able to log in until you have created a student portal account. If you have difficulty, there may be a problem with your PLNU student account. Contact the ITS Help Desk at 619-849-2222 if you have trouble logging in.
It may be that your campus housing information or account information is not up to date. If you believe you are not pre-approved for the correct parking permit, contact the ITS Help Desk at 619-849-2222.
There is no fee for your initial parking permit, but there is a $10 fee for lost permit replacement. The only other fees are associated with citations issued by Public Safety personnel. Citations can be paid or appealed online at plnu.thepermitstore.com. Fines will be doubled and placed directly on your PLNU account if unpaid.
There are no exceptions to the Freshman Vehicle Policy. Students are expected to abide by this policy or be subject to fines and other discipline. Read the full policy here: Notice To Freshmen Students.
