Welcome to The Department of Public Safety Parking Division

The Parking Division staff is committed to providing enhanced customer service. We are dedicated to making your parking experience a positive one.

Our website has been designed to help you find and understand parking on our campus while eliminating frustrations that you may encounter as a newcomer to Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Starting with the 2014-2015 academic year, freshmen and sophomores living on campus will NOT need to complete a parking lottery form. Applications for 2014-2015 parking decals will be available beginning July 1, 2014.

As part of Student Employee Appreciation Week, Linley Mayer was awarded the 2013/2014 Student Employee of the Year in the Parking Division. Linley was selected by her co-workers for her reliability, helpfulness, customer service skills, and initiative. Linley, a History major from Sparta, started working at the Parking Division in August 2012. Linley (left) is pictured with Eli Epplin (right), Parking Division 2012/2013 Student Employee of the Year. Linley will graduate this May, and will be greatly missed. We wish her the best in her future activities!
