 PARKING APPLICATION.

I PAID IN FULL FOR THE FISCAL YEAR, WHAT DO I DO?
If you paid the full amount for the year you will still have to come to Public Safety with a completed application, your valid CCNY ID card and your original Bursar's receipt to pick up their renewal permit.   If your ID Card sticker reads anything other than the current year then it is NOT VALID and you will need to get an updated ID sticker from the ID Office.  

HOW DO I GET A NEW PERMIT (NOT A RENEWAL)? - WAITING LIST
This is explained elsewhere on this page, however o
nce we run out of permits you will need to place your name on the waiting list.  You will do this by emailing PARKING@CCNY.CUNY.EDU using your CCNY Faculty or Staff email account

WHAT DOCUMENTS WILL I NEED?

If you are renewing you only need to bring the new application, your valid CCNY Faculty or Staff ID card and your original Bursar's receipt.  You do not need the other supporting documents unless there has been a change in your insurance or you are adding a vehicle.  If this is a first time permit for the fiscal year then you will also need a copy of your vehicle registration(s), vehicle insurance card(s) and your valid drivers license.   If your ID Card sticker reads anything other than 2018  then it is NOT VALID and you will need to get an updated ID sticker.   

We respect your time so to speed your visit at the Parking Desk we strongly suggest that you bring a black or blue ink pen and photocopies of your documents and a filled in copy of your application.  We will attach the copies to your application and file them away in a secure location.

CAN I START USING MY PERMIT BEFORE JULY 1ST?
No.  You must continue to use your current permit that expires on June 30th. 

CAN I USE MY OLD PERMIT AFTER JULY 1ST?
No, unless it is a St. Nicholas Terrace permit which is valid for a year.  

WHAT IF I DON'T RENEW MY PERMIT IN TIME?
If you do not renew your permit in time it will be offered to the next person on the waiting list and you will loose your right to claim a renewal unless you paid for the year. 

I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS TIME TO RENEW, WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Permits are clearing marked with the expiration date.  Though we send email broadcasts to the college community about parking permit sales, and many other Public Safety matters, it is your responsibility to renew your permit on time.  
 If you don't receive these emails you should write to broadcast@ccny.cuny.edu and ask to placed on their mailing list.  The same information that is in a parking Broadcast email can be found on this web page.  Remember, if you do not renew your permit by January it will be offered to the next person on the waiting list and you will loose your right to claim a renewal unless you paid for the year.

WHERE CAN I GET A PARKING PERMIT APPLICATION?
You can download the parking permit application here: PARKING APPLICATION.   Applications are also available in the Public Safety office, NAC 4/201. Please bring a black or blue ink pen with you and photocopies of your documents.  

I DON'T PARK 12 MONTHS OF THE YEAR.  CAN I GET A DISCOUNT?
No.   We do not sell by the semester, month, day or the hour - we sell by the fiscal year (July to June).   If you buy for the year and you decide you no longer want the permit you can physically surrender it to the Parking Desk, NAC 4/201 and we will start the refund process.  Your refund will be for the time that remains on your permit in whole months from the date you physically turn in the permit.  The surrendered permit will be offered to sale to the next person on the waiting list.   

CAN I LEND MY PERMIT TO A COLLEAGUE, TO A STUDENT OR USE IT ON A CAR NOT REGISTERED TO ME ON MY APPLICATION?
No.  If you do so you risk loosing your parking privileges but you also risk having the vehicle towed since the permit is being used in violation of the rules and regulations which are clearly stated here, on the parking application and posted on signs in the parking lots.  

I THINK SOMEONE IS USING A FORGED PARKING PERMIT, WHAT DO I DO?
Thank you for letting us know.  Do not approach them.  Call us at (212) 650-6911 and we will respond, investigate and take the appropriate action.  
Duplicating and/or using an altered CCNY parking permit is a crime under NYS Penal Law Section 170.10 Forgery in the second degree which is a Class D Felony and is punishable by imprisonment of one year or more and/or a fine.  

HAVE YOU EVER ARRESTED ANYONE FOR USING A FRAUDULENT PERMIT?  Yes.

I HAVE A PERMIT BUT WHEN I ARRIVED THERE WERE NO SPOTS LEFT, WHAT DO I DO?
All spots are filled on a first come first served basis.  We usually fill all of our spots weekdays and if you arrive on campus later in the morning or early afternoon you may have to wait for a spot to become available.  The NAC lot usually fills up first and South Campus an hour or so later. 

WHEN I GOT TO CAMPUS I SAW SOME EMPTY SPOTS IN THE NAC LOT, WHY WON'T THE OFFICER ALLOW ME TO PARK THERE?
Sometimes spots may appear to be available but they are not.  They are being held for reserved permit holders who asked us to hold their space for them past the 10:00 AM deadline or they are being held for one of the 10 guests we accommodate each weekday. 

I WAS DRIVING AROUND THE NAC LOT LOOKING FOR A GOOD SPOT AND I FOUND ONE BUT IT HAD A CONE IN IT.  CAN I MOVE THE CONE?  No.  If you do we will try to contact you and request that you move your car immediately.  If you fail to move your car or we cannot reach you we may either have your vehicle towed or we may suspend your parking privileges or both.  

WHAT ABOUT STUDENT DAY PARKING?
Unfortunately there is no Day Parking for students.  Please note that students who hold a part time job at the college and have a Staff or Graduate Student ID are not eligible.  If you obtained a permit in violation of this policy we will revoke it.  WE DO AUDITS AND CHECK THE RECORDS. 

IS THERE HANDICAPPED PARKING ON CAMPUS?
Yes, we have a limited number of handicapped parking spaces in the NAC lot.  They are for disabled CCNY Faculty, Students or Staff possessing a government issued disabled persons parking permit and who also possesses a valid paid CCNY parking permit.  The Government issued permit may ONLY be used when the permit-holder (CCNY faculty, staff or student) is traveling in the vehicle.  Any person uses a disabled parking permit and abuses any privilege, benefit, precedence or consideration arising from possession of the permit, may have it revoked by the issuing agency.  THIS IS THE LAW.  If such abuse comes to the attention of the Parking Desk, we will document and inform the agency that issued the disabled permit and we will revoke the driver's on-campus parking privileges.   

HOW CAN I GET A NYC DISABLED PARKING PERMIT?
In New York City you go to the NYC Department of Transportation WEB page that deals with this issue by clicking HERE.   NYC Disabled parking permits are available to both residents and non-residents of NYC.  We honor disabled persons parking permits issued by any goverment authority. 

I HAVE A TEMPORARY MEDICAL ISSUE AND A DOCTORS NOTE - CAN I PARK IN ONE OF THE DESIGNATED HANDICAPPED SPACES?
No, that would be illegal.  If you want to park in a designated handicapped spot you will need a disabled parking permit.  You can get the information on how to apply for one on the NYC Department of Transportation's WEB page that deals with disabled parking permits (see above).  You can apply for one outside NYC by visiting your town or county clerk. .  

ARE THERE PUBLIC GARAGES IN THE AREA?
Yes.  You will find some options if you Google "PARKING NEAR THE CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK".  You can also try Parkwhiz.com or
 Parkme.com.  You can also Google "PARKING NEAR THE CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK".  We do not endorse any particular private parking facility. 

IS THERE ANY STREET PARKING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD?
Yes, but make sure you check and obey all of the parking restrictions which are posted on pole mounted signs.   You can get additional information by going to the  NYC Department of Transportation official Street Map: www.nycdot.info.  The interactive map shows parking restrictions street by street.  

IS THERE GUEST PARKING?
Yes but it is extremely limited.  It was designed for certain visitors to the College (ie. guest lecturers, repair technicians, etc.) and not for those attending tours and open houses or special events (unless the event host has arranged for parking).  It was NOT designed for faculty or staff who occasionally park on campus. ​We strongly suggest you email your requests to parking@ccny.cuny.edu well in advance of the requested date as we fill our guest spots every weekday.  Tuesdays and Thursdays are in most demand while Friday has the least demand. Our parking lots are closed weekends and holidays.

ADDITIONAL FAQS:


The purchase of a parking permit does not carry with it any rights, nor does it guarantee a parking space. CCNY merely agrees to allow a person to park his/her vehicle on the campus, when and if a proper space is available.

Storing a vehicle on CCNY property for personal reasons is strictly prohibited. It is a violation of this policy for a permitted vehicle to remain on CCNY property while the permit holder is engaging in non-CCNY related business. Anyone needing to leave their vehicle on CCNY property because of emergency or other circumstances must apply in writing to the parking@ccny.cuny.edu.

The permit holder assumes all responsibility for any damage and/or liabilities incurred to the vehicle while parked on CCNY property, including, but not limited to, theft, vandalism, damage to, or loss of, the vehicle or personal property contained in the vehicle. CCNY is not liable for personal injury, damage, theft, or loss of property arising from the exercise of parking privileges.

You park at their own risk.
