Parking permits: How to pick up or purchase

Here is how to buy a parking permit if you have not done so, and how to pick up your permit if you have.

If you have purchased a parking permit, you may pick it up at the Facilities Office in Sorensen Hall.

Or, if you have not purchased a permit and you are on campus, you can buy one at the Facilities Office.

Pickup and purchase

Go to the back entrance of Sorensen Hall (dock area) and buzz in via Police Public Safety. You must be wearing a mask to enter.

Only the person picking up the permit or buying a permit may enter the building. (If you bring friends or family with you, they must wait outside.)

The Facilities Office is the first office on the left side. Go to the window with the big blue A to pick up your permit.

While you are inside the building, please practice social distancing. If you are waiting in line for your permit, stand at least 6 feet behind the person in front of you.  

If you are buying a permit, please have all of your vehicle information with you and payment. We will accept cash, check, money orders, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

Facilities Office hours

Week of Aug. 24: Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

Buying a permit if you are not on campus

If you have the parking packet you received over the summer you can still fill that out and send it back with payment.  

If you do not have a packet, you can print out the vehicle registration and mail it in with payment to:

Augustana College
639 38th St.
Rock Island, Ill., 61201

If you have bought a permit you will receive a receipt in by email. Most receipts have been emailed out except for some requests received late last week; these are being processed now. If you are just now mailing out your parking purchase, please allow 5-7 business days to get your receipt.
