A new school year means that it is time to register for a new parking permit. For the 2019-2020 school year, students, staff and faculty can register online for their permit before picking it up at the Parking Office.
If you cannot register online you can do so at the Parking Office, which is on level one of the Portland campus parking garage, or the Public Safety Building on the Gorham campus.
To register (if you are a student) or purchase (if you are faculty or staff) your permit, log in to your mycampus portal and find the USM Parking Portal on the quick links menu. In order to register, you will need to have your license plate number on hand, as well as the make model and year of the car you want to register.
Once you find the Parking Portal quick link, it will take you to a page with a single sign in button. After you press that, select “get permits” from the following page. The site will walk you through the following process.
At the end, there will be a checkout page. If you are a student, the charge shown on this page has already been charged to your student account as a standard part of your tuition. You will not need to pay this charge and it should let you know that.
After you register for your permit, you will need your student ID to pick it up at the Parking Office.
If you want to pick it up in Gorham at the Public Safety Building, just let the Parking Office know to send your permit there. The Parking Office can be contacted at [email protected] or by phone at (207) 780-4718.
Permits will not be required until September 9th but you are encouraged to register early.
