    Vehicle Registration

    • The University is not responsible for any theft or damage while your vehicle is on the University of Detroit Mercy premises.
    • If your parking permit is stolen on campus, in order to obtain a replacement permit at no-charge, you must have a copy of the Department of Public Safety or police report.
    • The University requires current registration of any vehicle that is owned or operated by a student, faculty, staff member or visitor when such a vehicle is parked on any property owned by University of Detroit Mercy.
    • Motor vehicles parked on University-owned or leased property must be registered with the appropriate state or government agency and display that current license plate. If this is missing, the vehicle will be listed as abandoned and may be towed within 48 hours at the owner's expense.
    • Registration of a vehicle is complete only after the Detroit Mercy parking permit is properly obtained and displayed.
    • Replacement permits will cost $20.
    • If you leave the University and lose your parking permit then return to the University within two years, you will be responsible for the $20 replacement fee.

    Obtaining a parking permit

    Students

    New students shall register their vehicle at the Parking & ID Office within the first 10 business days of the semester for which they are enrolled. The hanging permit is transferable to all vehicles driven by you. If you are found in possession of a faculty/staff parking permit, you are subject to possible student code of conduct violations.

    A completed registration form is required when registering. The following documents must be presented:

    1. Current state vehicle registration
    2. Driver's license
    3. Printout of your class schedule for the current term

    Faculty/Staff

    University employees purchase parking permits via payroll deduction for full-time faculty on the 20 pay cycle and the charge is $7.80; part-time employees on the biweekly pay cycle is $3; for all other employees, the charge is $6. Paying this fee does not guarantee finding a parking spot when and where you want to park. The hanging permit is transferable to all vehicles driven by you.

    A completed registration form is required when registering. The following documents must be presented:

    1. Current state vehicle registration
    2. Driver's license

    Permit location

    1. Permits must be visible from outside the vehicle.
    2. Daily permits shall be placed inside on the driver's side of the windshield.
    3. Hanging permits should be hung from the rear view mirror inside the driver's compartment only while parked. Remove the permit before driving as it can be cause for an "obstructed view" moving violation.
    4. The University is not responsible for any damage that occurs (e.g. exposure to the sun) to a permit left hanging in a vehicle while not parked on University property.
