Request a Temporary Guest Parking Pass

Temporary Guest Parking Pass Policy

If you are requesting a Temporary Guest Parking Pass with less than 24 hours notice, you will need to visit one of the following locations in-person: Campus Safety Dispatch (24/7), the Main Campus Welcome & Information Desk (WID), the Priory WID or the Coughlin Commons WID.

Temporary Parking Permits will ONLY be issued if your request is completely filled out. They are to be placed on the front dashboard driver’s side face up and unblocked.  If the permit is blank or unreadable you will receive a ticket.


It is against Dominican University’s code of conduct to alter the information on a temporary permit. Altering a temporary permit will result in a parking citation and the restriction of further temporary permits. Misuse of the temporary permit system will restrict the issuance of temporary permits to the individual, their guests, and their vehicles. 


Temporary permits are designed to temporarily allow drivers with a valid permit to use an alternate vehicle when their vehicle is unavailable in order to park on Dominican University property.  They are also available for visitors to use when there is no parking available in the Visitors Circle or they are on campus for more than two hours.
