Welcome to Parking Services at Southern Oregon University

 2014-2015 Oregon Administrative Rules have been updated. Read them here.

The parking department is looking to hire students for several part time jobs writing parking citations. For more info visit CareerLink, or email

Please Note: Parking regulations are enforced year-round in campus lots, including summer term.

2015-2016 Parking Permits are now available to purchase. You can do so via MySOU by selecting the Parking Self-Service link (listed below). The new permits will be valid starting now until the end of summer term 2016.

Parking is first come first serve, buying a parking permit does not guarantee you a parking space.

Enforcement of new parking permits will begin October 5th, 2015
