Students who wish to park in BYU's student parking "Y" or "G", now need to register and pay for fall and winter semester parking. Spring and Summer is Free, but they still have to register.
When do I pay for parking?
Fall – You can pay after July 1st
Winter – You can pay after December 1st. (That fee covers December 1st to the end of Winter Semester)
Do I get a sticker when I pay?
No, once you register your vehicle and pay the fee, your license plate is in the digital registration system. When the license plates are scanned by officers, yours will show as having been registered and paid. Check your status by logging into home.byu.edu/webapp/traffic and checking your status in Step #3.
How do I register?
The easiest method is to use the BYU Mobile App Parking Feature. You can also use https://home.byu.edu/webapp/traffic/vehicles/
Where can I park for free?
Vehicle must be registered to park in Unpaid/free:
They are called the U or Unpaid lots. Check maps.byu.edu for the location of all parking lots.
Spring/Summer – All “Y” and “G” lots are free but student must still register the vehicle.
After Hours “Open Parking” rules will not change
If I am an undergraduate student and pay for parking, where can I park?
All “Y” lots and Unpaid Lots
If I am a Graduate student and pay for parking, where can I park?
All Unpaid lots, All “Y” lots and all “G” lots and unpaid lots.
Who has to pay for parking on campus?
Students who are not on-campus residents.
I live in Helaman or Heritage Halls, where can I park and do I pay?
On campus residents do not need to pay parking fees to park in the B or C lots, but they may not park in the Y or G lots.
I live in YMount and Yview. Do I need to pay to park?
YMount and YView residents do not need to pay to park in their building lots or “Y” or “G” depending on if they are an undergraduate or graduate student.
Do employees have to pay to park on campus?
No. All full and part-time employees with ACGY privileges will not need to pay for parking. Student employees will pay for parking fees.
Do children/spouses of employees need to pay for parking?
If the dependent is driving a car that is registered to an employee, they may park in the “Y” or “G” lots depending upon their status. The child or spouse should definitely not park in the “A” lots as those are intended for employees. Students incorrectly parked will be cited even if the vehicle could be parked in an A lot by the employee. If the dependent wants to register their own vehicle, they must pay the $60 fee.
How many cars can be registered?
Students may register 2 vehicles but only park one at a time in a “Y," “G," or unpaid lots.
Employees may register 3 vehicles but only park one at a time on campus.
What if I already have 4 vehicles registered?
Delete the extra vehicles before October 1st.
On October 1st, a process will be run to delete extra vehicles starting with the ones with the oldest registration/add date.
Registration Type – what do those mean?
Permanent Vehicle: A car you will regularly park on campus. Students may register 2 and employees may register 3.
New Vehicle with Temporary Registration: If you just bought a car and don’t have a license plate, you can temporarily register using the number on the paper plate you were given at the department of motor vehicles. You must return and enter the real plate or risk getting a ticket.
Rental/Borrowed Vehicle: In addition to your Permanent Vehicles, users may temporarily register a borrowed vehicle. Rental/Borrowed vehicles may be parked in the same lots as your permanent vehicle dependent on your student status and if you paid the $60 fee.
If I park a car but haven’t paid and then get a ticket/citation, is there a grace/forgiveness period?
No, the fee must be paid before the citation, so if you get one you’ll need to pay the $30 citation plus the $60 parking fee.
My husband/wife and I are both students, do we both have to pay?
Yes each student should pay the $60 fee ($120 total) unless you know that you will never both park on campus in Y or G lots at the same time. If two vehicles are detected simultaneously, you will receive a citation.
Can I get a refund?
No. Once you pay for parking, you have a virtual permit for the entire semester. That’s why we are charging for one semester at a time. We want students to have flexibility in case they are not attending the whole year.
Do the fees decline as the semester progresses?
No, the fee is $60 per semester.
I think I paid, how do I verify?
Return to the parking registration page and check Step #2 and #3. #2 will show the payment and #3 will show which lots.
You will need to complete the New Vehicle Registration for each vehicle you wish to register. Below is a screenshot of Step 1.
Below Step 1, you can see your currently registered vehicles. There is a limit to how many vehicles you can have registered.
For Step 2, follow your way through the payment process. When completed, you should receive a payment confirmation page and a confirmation email.
BEFORE you park in your designated lots, check Step 3. This shows your parking privileges, and tells you where you are allowed to park.
For additional questions, feel free to call the OIT Service Desk.
