A parking permit is needed to park in most areas of the university. Permits are issued to students and employees on an annual basis each August. The fee for student permits is $150 annually. Parking applications can be obtained at the Office of Public Safety, Thorn Street, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information on campus parking areas, please review the Campus Map.
In addition to permit parking areas, there are two pay stations located on campus for visitors or students without permits. One pay station is located in Lot 12 below the Rec Center and the other is located in Lot 16 behind Gemmell. These pay stations accept debit or credit card only.
Clarion Area Transit
Students are encouraged to use the Clarion Area Transit bus service instead of driving to campus. All students may receive a free stadium permit instead of purchasing an on-campus permit. In addition, students ride free with a student ID.
The hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., seven days a week. Weekdays, the Campus Loop route travels every half-hour to many off-campus apartments in the Clarion area and to the University Stadium. In the evenings, the Mall Run travels hourly from the campus, stadium, and surrounding area to the Mall (exit 62) area. For more information on the bus, visit www.clarion.edu/bus.
Students at Clarion can now have wheels with no strings attached. Zipcar, the world’s leading car-sharing service, is now on campus. For more information about Zipcar, please see www.zipcar.com.clarion.
