If you wish to cancel, you may do so at the Housing Office by completing a Parking Cancellation Form and turning in your parking decal if applicable. Once parking has been canceled, you will be charged for the number of days you parked plus an $80 cancellation fee.
Parking decks are secured and monitored by police 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Residents are given an access card to gain entry into their assigned deck. Illegally or improperly parked vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense. Contact the Housing Office or the Community Desk for information regarding your towed vehicle. Georgia State University assumes no responsibility for vehicles or protection of any vehicle or its contents at any time.
Georgia State University Housing parking regulations require that every vehicle parked at the Commons or Piedmont North must be registered and have a current parking decal properly displayed in the vehicles rear window on the driver’s side.

On the various levels of the parking decks, there are several ‘University Housing Only’ parking spaces. These spaces are for GSU HOUSING PERSONNEL ONLY. Do not park in these spaces or you will be towed at your expense.
