New Employees

New employees should be able to purchase parking permits online (see instructions below). If you encounter any difficulties fill out the New Employee Form and email it to parking@mines.edu. Once the form has been processed, you will receive instructions for purchasing a permit.


Permit Renewal

Employees may choose to pay for their permits via a monthly deduction from their paycheck. These permits renew monthly until Parking is notified to cancel the permit or if the employee leaves Mines. If the permit is pre-paid then the permit must be paid for in full at time of expiration and cannot be renewed automatically. 

Types of campus permits

  • Commuter permits allow parking exclusively within all Commuter lots and areas identified on the campus map in yellow.
  • General permits allow parking within all General lots identified on the campus map in blue, on streets within the campus boundaries, Commuter lots, and along Tangent Way in Mines Park.
  • Garage General permits allow parking in the garage at 1400 Maple St and in Commuter lots.
  • Reserved permits allow for parking exclusively in the specific Reserved lot (red on the campus map) that they are assigned, and in Commuter lots. All Reserved permits are currently sold out and must be requested by adding your name to the waitlist for the Reserved lot you are interested in. Employees can be on up to three waitlists at one time.
