A second parking hang tag may be purchased if one chooses to park their vehicle and motorcycle on campus simultaneously.

Vehicle Registration

Any UIS Student, Staff, or Faculty is eligible.

No person shall register a vehicle, or receive a parking Hang Tag for a vehicle, unless he/she completes the Parking Hang Tag Application form online. Once the online purchase is complete, the Parking Hang Tag receipt and a valid photo ID must be presented to the Parking Operations Office, in order to receive the appropriate Parking Hang Tag. No parking hang tags will be sold to individuals with “dealer” license plates on their vehicle(s).

Any eligible UIS Student, Staff, or Faculty, may register only his/her vehicle(s), or the vehicle(s) of a member of his/her immediate family, including any relative domiciled at the individual’s residence. Each individual UIS Student, Staff or Faculty, that has a vehicle on campus, will be required to register and obtain a parking hang tag at the full price for their own vehicle. No UIS Student, Staff or Faculty may register a vehicle(s) of another student, staff or faculty.

Registration of a vehicle is not complete until the hang tag issued, is hung on the rear view mirror or displayed visibly in the front windshield of the motor vehicle with the parking hang tag numbers facing outward and legible for inspection.
