PARKING PERMIT

If you are parking on the APU Azusa campuses, you need a parking permit. If you only visit the Azusa campuses occasionally, you will need to obtain either a parking permit for Regional Campus students (with a $4.75 processing fee that will be charged to your student account) or a visitor’s pass on the day of your visit from the welcome booth on University Drive or in the Parking Office in Adams Hall to prevent being ticketed. Regional Campuses do not require parking permits but all students are required to register their vehicles in case of emergency at the following link: apu.thepermitstore.com. You may also use this link to request a parking permit. Once you register online, if you are an Azusa campus student or have at least one class at the Azusa campuses you must purchase a permit ($129.75 per semester), your student account will be charged and your parking permit will be mailed to you.
