Special Parking Requests

All services, with the exception of bike impound and tow releases, are available online or over the phone from 8am-4pm, Monday – Friday, excluding university holidays.

The Application for Special Parking Privileges form must be completed in its entirety. Please answer all questions clearly and completely. Letters or telephone calls requesting special parking will not be considered. Complete the application and email the completed application with any supporting documentation to our Parking Coordinator at ParkingRequest@police.msu.edu

Application for medical reasons must include a photocopy of a valid state-issued disabled parking placard or plate number.

For Non-University employment–related applications, the first page of the application must accompany verification of employment on the employer’s letterhead stationery, including the student’s work schedule, responsibilities, an authorized signature and a telephone number.

For University employment-related applications, both pages must be completed, including the student’s work schedule, responsibilities, an authorized signature and a telephone number.

Apply ten (10) business days prior to when the permit is desired to help insure time for review AND permit processing and mail time.  It generally takes between 7-10 business days to process the request (process time may vary depending on the time of year, i.e., the beginning of each semester is an especially busy time). If you submit an application during the summer for the coming fall semester/year, it will be reviewed starting July 1st of that year.

Call the Parking Services Office at (517) 355-8440 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday (excluding University holidays), to obtain the decision on your request.

If your application was initially denied, you may resubmit your request for further consideration.

No temporary permits will be issued during the application process; therefore, you must park in areas that are legal with your current permit.
