Residents who would like to park a motorcycle or scooter on the Illinois campus will need to obtain a parking permit at the University's Parking Department. In addition, you will be expected to place one of your issued bicycle stickers on your motorcycle or scooter.
Limited parking is available. Apply for a parking permit at the Parking Department. The University's Parking Department determines the annual fee, bills your account and distributes the permit from their office.
Ashton Woods and Orchard Downs Parking
Each leaseholder is eligible for one parking permit each lease year. If a leaseholder has a dependent (spouse, parent, etc.) living with them in their apartment, the leaseholder may apply for a second permit for their dependent's car. At Orchard Downs, there is enough parking for one vehicle per family. If you have a second car, it should be parked in the “L” lot at the far south end of the complex.
Current residents who already have registered their car and have a parking permit, will continue to use that permit through the lease year. To update a parking permit, residents are asked to bring their current one to the Family & Graduate Housing Office.
Current residents or new residents who need to register their car and obtain a parking permit, will need to apply at Parking Request and then will be notified when their parking hangtag is ready to be picked up at the Family & Graduate Housing Office.
Permits are valid through July 31 each year. Permits must be returned with keys prior to vacating the apartment.
As with most college campuses, parking on the Illinois campus is limited. Please observe all signs posted at lot entrances. The campus Parking Department can help with temporary permits, parking information and detailed maps.
Visitor parking at Orchard Downs and Ashton Woods is managed through Family & Graduate Housing.
