Since parking on campus is limited, prioritization of parking requests is necessary. For students, priority is determined by whether you live on or off campus and your total credit hours. For employees, priority is determined by the length of time you have been employed by the UM System. Some lots are restricted to only students who live in designated residence halls.
Students who live in residential halls are given priority for selected parking lots.
The residential areas and lots include:
If you request a student permit for a residential lot and you do not live in the associated hall, your request will be given lower priority than residents. However, you may request permits for up to 4 lots to increase your chances to secure a parking space.
To request a new permit, go to the Parking Portal at https://ctitt-mst.cticloudhost.com and complete the following steps:
There will be a notice indicating that there are no permits to purchase at this time at the bottom of the page. This is correct and will remain until an offer is sent to you via email if/when a permit is available to you. We anticipate offers being sent out to employees in mid- to late July and students will start at the beginning of August. We request you show us patience as this process generally takes us at least 6 weeks to complete. You will not be notified if you are ineligible for a permit for the lot(s) you have requested due to being outranked in seniority or if all permits have been sold.
To accept a permit offered via email, go to the Parking Portal at https://ctitt-mst.cticloudhost.com and complete the following steps:
After completing the purchasing process, you will receive two emails. The first will be a receipt confirming your purchase of a permit and the second will be a confirmation from our office that your order has been processed. In the second email, you will receive a temporary permit that you must print out and place in a visible place of your vehicle's dash when parking on campus.
Failure to properly display the temporary permit will result in Parking Tickets regardless of whether the vehicle in question is linked to your permit at the time of ticketing. Temporary permits may not be used past their expiration date. If you reach the week your temporary permit expires and have not received your physical permit in the mail, please come by our office and we will assist you. Improperly formatted mailing addresses may result in an additional two week delay for permits to be sent to our office for retrieval.

Payment for tickets may be done online via Credit/Debit card or paid in person with Credit/Debit card or cash. Tickets not paid by cash or card within 7 days of the ticket being issued will have the fine charged to their account.

Students must then pay at the Cashier's office or online through JoeSS. Additionally, tickets cannot be appealed once charged to an account.
Details on types of parking violations and fines can be found in the complete rules (see Rules and Regulations), sections .1001 through .1009. Most parking violations fall into the following categories; however, this is not an exhaustive list and fines increase after repeat violations.
After multiple offenses additional fines will be charged.
On the seventh parking violation, and every third violation after that, a vehicle may be towed at the owner's expense.
A Missouri S&T disabled parking permit will allow the permit holder to park in any disabled space on campus except in the visitor lot. If all of the disabled spaces are full in the area you wish to park, you may also park in a regular permit parking space, excluding metered parking. Disabled permits are valid from September 1 to August 31 each year. Please contact Parking Lot Operations at 573-341-4303, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please note that the condensed rules, while representative of the complete rules, do not cover all scenarios and should be considered general guidelines for parking at Missouri S&T. Parking rules are enforced according to the complete rule set, which is viewable via a button below the condensed rules.
Parking rules are discussed and adopted by the members of the Parking, Security and Traffic Committee and approved by the chancellor. This committee is formed of faculty, staff, and students. Minutes from each meeting are available to read.
