Construction Vehicle Parking

For your convenience, construction parking permits are now available exclusively for order online.

  • New! A contact free option to obtain permits and self manage needs online is now available.

Once a parking account has been created for the company, the Parking and ID Card Services Office will be happy to provide the designated company contact with instructions for logging in and ordering construction parking permits for their workers online.
  • Please note that construction parking permits are now “virtual permits” specific to each vehicle. The vehicle license plate number registered will be how SMU Parking and ID Services validates the permit using License Plate Recognition technology. The license plate must be visible to the drive lane for us to scan the plate.
