Traffic and Parking

Vehicle Registration

All students driving a motor vehicle on campus must obtain a Palm Beach State parking permit.

  • The parking decal shall be adhered to the outside of the left rear window or left rear bumper.
  • Remove the decal upon transferring ownership of the vehicle.
  • Notify campus Security of vehicle title transfer.
  • Florida Atlantic University is no longer honoring Palm Beach State decals at the FAU Boca Raton campus, with the exception of vehicles parked in Parking Garage #1 at the FAU library and lot #19. (*Temporary PBSC Passes are not honored*) Current FAU students who are also enrolled at Palm Beach State College must obtain a current PBSC decal and comply with Palm Beach State traffic and parking regulations.

Students who can prove that they do not use Palm Beach State College transportation facilities at any campus may submit a Parking Fee Opt Out Form to any campus Dean of Student Services.

Reserved Parking

Reserved decals are restricted to full-time and regular part-time employees and will not be issued to temporary or student employees. Reserved parking areas are for faculty/instructors and staff only. Students can park at any unmarked space but may not park in Reserved or Visitor spaces.

Disabled Parking

These spaces are clearly marked with disabled parking signs and are monitored by campus Security and law enforcement agencies.


Temporary Permits: This dashboard pass will be issued for classes less than six weeks in duration by the host division or to employees of contractors working on campus, and to temporary or student employees.

Short-Term Permits: The Security office will issue a pass for unregistered vehicles, valid for up to three days. These passes must be displayed on the dashboard with expiration dates clearly visible.
