Parking and Transportation

    Vehicle Changes

    To update the vehicle registered to your parking permit, fill out the Vehicle Change Request form.

    License Plate Recognition

    Illinois State uses License Plate Recognition (LPR) to enforce the majority of our permits. Instead of a physical permit, you will be issued a virtual permit that is tied to your license plate. Students are limited to one license plate per permit. Faculty and staff may register more than one license plate.
    Because your permit will be linked to your license plate, it is extremely important that your license plate is entered correctly when purchasing your permit and updating your vehicles. Please see the license plate entry requirements. If you need assistance with this process, please contact our office and we will be happy to help.

  • Keys are locked in a car.
