Band 1 < $49,999 $41.00
Band 2 $50,000 – $99,999 $52.00
Band 3 $100,000 – $149,999 $72.00

Permit delivery

Parking permits will be delivered to the address used during registration. If you prefer to have your permit delivered on campus, please use your campus address.

Affix your permit to your registered vehicle when it arrives. There is no reason to wait until Sept. 1, as permits are valid immediately at no extra charge.

Park smart

The university is introducing a License Plate Recognition (LPR) system in 2017 to help collect data, increase security, and monitor parking on campus. The system will be vehicle-mounted and patrol the campus. Please park your vehicle so that your license plate is readable from the drive lane. This allows the LPR system to read the plates of the vehicles on both sides of the drive lane simultaneously, creating efficiencies and reducing costs in terms of vehicle idling time for the university.

Alternative transportation

Vanderbilt University offers a wide variety of transportation options. Faculty and staff can take advantage of the MTA ride-to-work program, vanpools, Express buses, Music City Star discounts, Zipcar, Enterprise CarShare and much more.
