Registering a second vehicle

Decals for additional family or domestic partner (as defined by University policy) vehicles may be issued for $15.00 per vehicle when no other member of the same household is a student or employee of the University. Faculty and staff who are eligible for a blue decal may purchase additional blue decals for their use after other eligible affiliated family member(s) or domestic partners (as defined by University policy) in the household have registered a vehicle with the appropriate decal.

I live in family housing. How many vehicles may I have?

Family Housing residents may register three motor vehicles, not to exceed two four-wheeled vehicles. The second four-wheeled vehicle must be parked in designated family housing areas. A motorcycle, moped or motor scooter must be parked in designated motorcycle parking areas. All vehicles must have the appropriate Parking Division decal and the Family Housing permit issued by the University Area Housing Office.

What if we want to car pool?

Employees or students who wish to rotate driving responsibilities with employees or students who are not members of their families may form car pools, by registering three or more vehicles. Each member of the pool will be issued a decal to denote membership in a designated car pool. One transferable hangtag will be issued to the pool and must be displayed on the rearview mirror in any vehicle bearing a car pool decal while it is parked on campus. Students are ineligible to be included in a blue car pool; however, employees and students may be included in a red car pool. A charge of $11.00 will be incurred for each additional vehicle added to an existing car pool.

My car is being repaired and I have a loaner.

If the vehicle is a loaner from a repair shop, you will need a temporary parking permit. Temporary parking permits may be obtained at Parking Division during normal hours of operation. Temporary parking permits may be obtained any other time from the SIU Police Department Telecommunicator located in Washington Square, Building A. The SIU Police Department is open 24 hours a day, everyday. Failure to obtain the Temporary Parking Permit may result in a parking citation being issued.

If you bring another vehicle that is in your household, that vehicle is eligible to be registered and should display a decal for which you are entitled. Such a vehicle is not eligible for a Temporary Parking Permit.

I sold the vehicle that had the decal. Now what?

When selling or trading in your vehicle, always remove the decal from the vehicle and return the decal (scraps) to Parking Division. Complete a new registration form for the new vehicle and present your valid driver’s license and car dealer paperwork. We will sell you a reduced price duplicate decal. Failure to return the decal (scraps) will be cause for you to remain responsible for any future citations written on the vehicle displaying your old decal and you will be required to pay current full price for the new decal. If the Parking Division offices are not open, go to the SIU Police Department located in Washington Square, Building A for a temporary permit (valid only until parking offices are open for business).
