Parking Registration


All vehicles operated and parked on Fontbonne University property are required to be state licensed and in operating condition. They must be registered with Fontbonne and display either a current Fontbonne parking permit or a valid visitor’s pass. Visitors conducting business with Fontbonne University from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, are required to register in the Information Office, Room 111 in Ryan Hall.

After normal working hours, visitors should register in the Public Safety Building across from St. Joseph’s Hall. Visitors seeing students are required to register in the Public Safety Building. A parking “GUEST” pass will be issued to each visitor during the registration process. It is the student’s responsibility to insure that their visitors are properly registered and aware of our parking regulations. A guest may not use a student’s parking permit.



Students living in the residence halls are required to purchase a resident permit. This authorizes overnight parking. Residents may not have more than one registered vehicle on campus at any given time. Commuter students on campus after 12 a.m., Sunday through Thursday or after 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday should register for the evening with Public Safety.

Parking Permits

Parking permits are required to be displayed on all vehicles operated and parked on campus by members of the Fontbonne community. This includes all faculty, staff and students working, attending class, or using the facilities on campus. Food service, bookstore and other contract employees assigned to the Fontbonne campus are also required to obtain a parking permit for their vehicle.

Parking permits are sold in the business office, Room 215 in Ryan Hall. Permits are sold for personal use. A permit may not be given away, resold or used by other people. Misused tags will be forfeited. Citations will also be issued for the misuse of tags and violators will lose their campus parking privileges for 12 months and may face criminal charges. Penalties apply to both the person purchasing the tag and the person using the tag.

Parking permits may be purchased by the school year or term:

Parking Cost 2018/2019 School Year
Annual Permit
Term Permit
Full-time faculty and staff (30 hrs or more) $150 $100
Part-time faculty and staff (29 hours or less) $100 $85

Resident students $180 $105

Parking hang tags may not be returned for a refund and Fontbonne does not replace lost or stolen tags.

Short-Term Parking

Short-term parking permits are available for purchase in the business office. A one-day permit is $5, a three-day permit is $10, a seven-day permit is $40. The one- and three-day permits may also be purchased after-hours in the public safety office.

Faculty, staff, students and contract employees may not use “GUEST” or “VISITOR” permits. A $50 fine will be assessed for misuse of a “GUEST” hang tag.

The purpose of a parking permit is to identify vehicles that have been authorized to park on university property. The permit is used to help identify unauthorized parkers and does not guarantee the availability of a parking space.
