Parking Compliance Policy
Permit and Payment Requirements Enforced
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the phased campus reactivation, Transportation Services did not automatically renew parking permits that expired at the end of June. Faculty and staff returning to in-person work are encouraged to visit myparking.cornell.edu to check their permit and vehicle information before parking, as restrictions are enforced throughout campus. Fine-due citations are issued in response to permit and payment requirement violations.
Commuters should take time to examine their transportation options, especially if they require only limited, occasional access to campus.
Daily Decision Parking
Low-cost Parking Options Using Parkmobile
The Daily Decision program gives commuters access to low-cost, short-term options to meet their occasional parking needs. This program, using the Parkmobile app, provides community members greater flexibility than a traditional annual or semester permit, coupled with the convenience of contactless self-service.
Visit the Daily Decision page to learn more about parking options, prices, and locations, and visit Parkmobile.io to download the app, create an account, and park.
