Parking for students is available close to all campus buildings. Students assessed a transportation fee may order a semester parking permit at no additional charge. Students with the transportation fee must order their parking permit online through the MyYSU Portal. Students registered for under six credit hours may opt into the transportation fee by ordering a semester parking permit through the MyYSU Portal or purchase a daily parking permit. Valid YSU parking permits are required at all times in all YSU parking lots and decks.

Some short-term metered parking is available on the streets surrounding campus.

Parking areas are designated as follows:

M-Mixed Parking (faculty, staff, and students)

R-Resident Parking

F-Faculty/Staff Parking

S-Student Parking

Parking facilities for students include two parking decks and surface lots. Although some lots are designated for faculty/staff parking during the day, after 4:30 p.m. daily, most F-lots become mixed (except the F-1 lot on University Plaza).

Street parking is under the jurisdiction of the city of Youngstown. Tickets received for street parking violations must be appealed to the city. For more information call the Parking Office at (330) 941-3546.

The current parking regulations can be found on the YSU Parking web page.

For information on registration of vehicles and applicable fees, see the Tuition, Fees, and Charges section of this catalog.

Motorists' Assistance Program

Parking Services offers on-campus help with jump starts and lockouts to anyone with a valid YSU parking permit. The MAP will also lend out lug wrenches, jack stands, and gas cans. To contact the MAP program and shuttle service call (330) 941-3051 or stop at any staffed parking booth.

Disability Parking

All students who wish to utilize YSU handicap parking must bring their valid state handicap registration to Parking Services in order to receive a handicap sticker. Once the sticker is applied to your permit, you may utilize all handicap parking on campus.
