Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports

Parking Information

On-campus parking is available to eligible Dedman members.  Student, Faculty/Staff and Retiree members will obtain parking through SMU Parking.  Some membership categories will include on-campus parking while others will be required to pay an annual parking fee (See Fees).  An active membership at time of purchase is required.  Dedman members are restricted to Moody, Binkley and Meadows garages (See below for details).

Parking is based on a calendar year and not annually with membership enrollment.  Beginning in November, members can purchase parking for the upcoming year.  To purchase parking, visit the Dedman Main Desk and order your permit/decal from SMU Parking Services using our online Parking Permit Request form located on the computers in the Dedman Lobby.  Remember to bring the make, model, year, color and license plate number of the vehicle.  Members are allowed two individual vehicles listed under the same permit.  Permits are easily transferrable between vehicles.
