Visitor Parking

Visitors are required to obtain a temporary visitor permit prior to visiting. This permit can be obtained by the Champlain employee hosting the guest using champlain.thepermitstore.com or by emailing parking@champlain.edu three days prior to the visit.

How can I get a permit for my guest?

Obtain a visitor permit for a guest by visiting champlain.thepermitstore.com, logging in to your parking account (or making one), and selecting the date for which the temporary permit is needed. This process takes three minutes or less and at the end you either print the temporary permit to give to your guest, or 'print' to PDF and email the permit to them.

For a step-by-step guide, see detailed instructions here.

Where should my guest park?

Visitors may park in any lot that their temporary parking permit allows. If the parking permit is not specific to a lot, visitors may park in any unrestricted lot or on any street. Keep in mind that there are some lots that are restricted for certain uses only. Pay attention to signs at each lot or space.

A Champlain Transportation Google Map is available that shows all parking locations as well as an accessibility layer that shows the exact location of all disabled parking spaces and access routes on campus. There is also an official printable accessibility map.

Perry Hall/West Hall lot is for visitors to the Admissions Office ONLY. Visitors to Admissions must display an Admissions office temporary visitor permit, which can be obtained at the front desk inside Perry Hall. No other visitors, employees, or students should park in Perry Hall/West Hall Lot.

What if I need a temporary/guest permit for myself?

Students and employees who wish to obtain permits for themselves due to extenuating circumstances should still email parking@champlain.edu at least three days before the temporary permit is needed.

If there is an emergency or special circumstance on the day, please call Parking at 865-5496 or Public Safety at 865-6465 with a vehicle description and location, so that the vehicle will not be ticketed.
