Tier System

Faculty and Staff Individual Parking Permit Tier System  

Cornell’s tier system parking permit structure matches staff with their most cost effective parking option.  

No Fee Permit Parking

A limited number of no-fee parking permits are available for the North Campus A lot. Bus service from A lot is as frequent as every ten minutes, and best of all, there’s no fee when you use your CU photo ID card at the fare box on TCAT buses.

No-Fee E permits are restricted to employees working in the associated permit area. 

Paid Permit Parking Areas

Paid permits offer different levels of privileges based on parking rate tier.  The more you pay, the more parking privileges available to you.  

  • All paid permits allow parking in their designated letter area and A lot.
  • Mid-Campus Tier permits add Perimeter and Outer permit areas to their parking privileges.
  • Central-Campus Tier permits are valid in their letter area, Mid, Perimeter, and Outer permit areas, student residential permit areas, and are eligible for a complimentary 30 minute loading permit, available from any parking booth. Central permits are also valid in designated FLEX spaces for up to two hours.

Motorcycle Annual Permit Rate—$119.94 (rate includes 8% NYS sales tax)

The M permit is issued and paid for annually and is valid only in signed motorcycle spaces. Alternately, permit holders can display their annual parking permit on a motorcycle and park in vehicle spaces in areas where the permit is valid. More...
