Commuter, stadium, general, restricted, and residence hall permits must be purchased online.  Night passes are not available online and must be purchased in person at the Office of Parking Services.  

How to Purchase Your Permit Online

  1. Visit the Parking Services' online portal page.
  2. Click Log in at the top of the page and then on the Affiliated Login button.  
  3. Log in with your Ball State username and password.
  4. Once logged in, click on Get Permits and follow the directions.

We accept Discover, MasterCard, or Visa for permit payment.  Eligible faculty and staff may also use payroll deduction for payment.  

If the location you want is full you can put your name on a waiting list visiting the online portal and clicking Add/Edit Wait Lists.  Being placed on a waiting list does not guarantee a permit will become available for that lot.  We recommend you purchase a permit for another available lot while you are on the waiting list.  If a permit becomes available, you will receive an email.   

Permit Exchanges

If you already have a permit and are upgrading your permit or making an exchange, be sure to bring your current permit with you. A new permit will not be issued until we receive the one you already have.

Special Parking Concerns

Individuals with special parking situations or concerns should contact the Office of Parking Services at (765)285-1208 for assistance.  We recognize the occurrence of unforeseen circumstances and may offer suggestions in keeping with the university's parking regulations.  Other special permits may be issued and must be used as instructed.
