Transportation Services coordinates parking enforcement, permitting and shuttle services for Samford University.

It is the responsibility of the student, employee or contractor to read, understand and obey Samford University's traffic and parking policies.

Parking Permits

ALL students are required to register with Transportation Services.

By registering with Transportation Services, students will receive a parking permit for their vehicle, learn about parking zones on campus and can become familiar with parking rules and consequences.

STUDENTS, we encourage you to complete this registration process, not a parent or guardian, as it provides important information you need to know about parking on campus.
