89% of the Staff Lots are gate controlled. To access these lots each staff member must be enrolled in the Parking Program and have a Photo ID/Access Card. The cards are generated by Purdue Calumet Police Department.

However, parking in staff lots that are not gate controlled will require the display of a “Hanging” permit. Hanging permits are available by request through the Police Department.

PROCEDURE TO OBTAIN A STAFF ACCESS PERMIT

  • Payment for staff access permits are administered through the payroll deduction, Office of Budget and Payroll.
  • Access to gated lots will require a Photo ID/Access Card.
  • Display of “Hanging” Permits

Hanging Permits are to be displayed by affixing the permit to the arm of the inside rear vision mirror with the permit number clearly visible from the front of the vehicle.

The hanging permit may be used in any vehicle as long as the permit is properly displayed on the vehicle.

  • On vehicles having no inside rear vision mirror, exceptions will be made for the permit display, by placing the permit, face up, on the dash in the middle of the dashboard.
