What if my permit is lost, or gets stolen?
Yes, there is a possibility that your permit may be lost or stolen. It is very important that you secure your car when it is parked on campus.
If the permit was stolen, you must file a report with the police. If it is lost, we also encourage you to make a police report.
If your permit is lost or stolen, report it to Parking & Transit immediately. You will be asked to fill out and sign a statement at verifying that you reported your permit lost/stolen. You will need to provide a copy of the police report, if a report was made, or the case number assigned by the police. A word of warning: if you make a fraudulent report of a lost or stolen permit, your parking will also be revoked, and a ticket issued.
For lost or stolen permits, Parking & Transit will program this status your permit number into the computerized handheld ticket writer. Upon routine scan of the parking lots, vehicles displaying lost/stolen or forged/altered permits will be towed, issued a $100 ticket plus the cost of the permit, revoked from parking on campus for a year, and the police notified.
If you have any questions about any of these procedures or policies, please feel free to contact us.
If you find your own permit, it is very important that you DO NOT use it. We recommend that you bring it in to our office — you may be eligible for a partial refund of the cost of your replacement permit.
If your permit is lost or stolen, a replacement permit will cost half of the current prorated price at the time of replacement.
If we are able to recover your permit, we will issue you a prorated refund for the price of the second permit upon its return.
