205 Parking Permits
Parking on the Oregon State University’s Corvallis campus requires a permit. Parking Services is an auxiliary enterprise and sells permits for parking to faculty, staff and students as individuals.
Institutional funds are not to be charged for parking space furnished to employees for personally owned automobiles when the employee’s primary work location is on or adjacent to the main OSU Corvallis campus. This ruling applies to annual staff permits, daily permits, five day parking permits, temporary ten day cards, etc. Only permits for spaces for university service vehicles may be paid for with university (non-grant) funds.
Temporary shared or daily permits for those employees whose primary duty station is away from the Corvallis campus and surrounding vicinity may be paid for with university (non-grant) funds as long as employees are visiting the main campus to conduct university business on a temporary and infrequent basis. Use of university funded permits for these purposes must comply with OUS, OSU, and IRS Travel Policy guidelines.
Parking Permits purchased for employee use with institutional funds must be supported with documentation and include the following information at the time of purchase:
- Type of permit purchased
- Description of the circumstances creating the need for the permit
- Employee(s) who will use the permit
- Primary work location of employee(s) who will use the permit
Income from parking permits and citations are deposited into separate accounts which form the operating funds for Parking Services. If a permit is refunded, the refund comes from the income account for permits. The same applies to citations. Once a month, outstanding Accounts Receivable (A/R) citation accounts are sent to Collections.
