Important Information Regarding Parking for First-Year Students
All residential students (including incoming freshmen) will be able to request a parking decal through our online application process (available mid-summer.)
The university has expanded its existing shuttle bus service as requested by students to Downtown New Haven and Hamden Plaza throughout the weekend and offers shuttle bus services to Union Station. We also have also expanded an already rich array of evening, late night and weekend social, recreational, and cultural activities and programs through the University. Learn more about Southern's Shuttle Bus services.
The university also maintains a webpage dedicated to student transportation. Learn more about transportation services such as the Zipcar car rental program, U-Pass transportation pass, NuRides program and R.I.D.E.S. program.
Please contact the Office of Residence Life or University Police for any questions regarding parking.
