Displaying your permit

Permits are expected to be purchased and displayed at all times while on campus. If you have not received your hangtag permit yet, please display a printed receipt in the vehicle windshield. There is no grace period for the fall semester.

Display permit on the rearview mirror or windshield, plainly visible from the exterior of the car. Failure to properly display a permit will result in a citation.

Purchasing a permit

Daily permits, summer SB, and motorcycle permits are currently available for purchase online. Please call us at 406-994-1723 or visit our office for any other permit designation requests including E, F, Garage, FGH, and Low Emissions permits.

Student Resident permits will not be available until after Residence Life reports your status as an on-campus housing resident and one day following class registration.

Parking permits for the 2019-2020 academic year will be available for purchase online on August 1, 2019. Please see our upcoming development page for information about how permits are changing.

Using your permit

The permit may be used on any vehicle you are operating. Please be sure to add all vehicles to your account if your license plate is your permit. Do not sell, give away or loan your permit without formally transferring your permit. The permit owner is responsible for any citations issued to a vehicle displaying your permit.

Carpooling

Those who carpool can share the same permit. In the event of a violation, the parking violation is charged to the permit owner no matter who is driving. If you forget your permit, you must purchase a temporary permit and display it correctly.


Please see the Campus Map for permit zoning.
