Parking Permits

All Denver Seminary students, faculty and staff are required to display the appropriate parking permit on the inside of the windshield in the lower right/passenger-side corner while parking in campus parking lots. Distinct, color-coded permits are required for students, students who live in the campus apartments, and Seminary employees (full time faculty, staff and associated faculty). These permits are valid for one academic year (the year is printed on the permit), and a new permit must be obtained annually.

  • Students: New students will receive a parking permit application form during new student orientation.  Applications for continuing students are available by email attachment sent prior to the beginning of the fall semester, or at the Information Reception Desk in the lobby of the Graber Administration building (business hours Mon-Fri 8:30 am-4:00 pm). The completed application is to be submitted, along with the appropriate fee, at the Information Reception Desk. The permit is issued immediately.
  • Faculty/Staff/Associated Faculty: Seminary employees will receive a parking permit application form by email attachment sent prior to the beginning of the fall semester. New employees will receive an application during new employee orientation. The completed application is to be submitted, along with the appropriate fee (if necessary), at the Information Reception Desk. The permit is issued immediately.
  • Campus Residents: New campus residents will receive a parking permit application at the time of move-in. Applications for continuing residents are available by email attachment sent prior to the beginning of the fall semester, or at the Information Reception Desk in the Graber Administration building lobby. This is a permit unique for campus residents, and an additional “Student” permit is not required.
