Frequently Asked Questions

I am a commuter student. Where do I purchase my parking decal?

Commuter students must sign into their Navigator account and click on the Parking Permit Request link to access the parking decal web store.
 

I am a resident student. Am I eligible to park on campus?

Only resident students who entered the parking lottery and were granted a decal are eligible to park on campus. If you missed the lottery and feel you have an extreme case that warrants review, there is a waiting list available. To access, you must sign into your Navigator account and click on the Parking Permit Waitlist link. All cases will be reviewed by Salem State administration. Application to the waitlist does not guarantee you will receive a decal.
 

I want to return my parking decal. What is your refund policy?

By default, Salem State University does not offer refunds for parking decals. However, the University also understands that there can occasionally be unique situations that require further review. If you feel your situation qualifies; please download, complete, and email a copy of this form to parking@salemstate.edu for review.
 

How do I access the new North Campus Parking Garage?

The parking garage is open to Commuter students and select North campus residents only. Access is granted via your Salem State ClipperCard, and should work automatically once you arrive on campus. If you have issues with your access, please email cardaccess@salemstate.edu.
 

I am an employee. Where do I purchase my parking decal?

I have a new vehicle, how can I update my information in your system?
