A valid NCSU parking permit is ALWAYS REQUIRED Monday through Friday EXCEPT official University Holidays (times when the University is closed).
When classes are not in session, but employees report to work, any valid NCSU parking permit is valid in all parking areas EXCEPT employee areas (B, C and A) and reserved spaces. Employee areas always require an area specific permit; B for B areas, C for C areas and A for gated A areas. Permits are always enforced during exam and reading days.
Parking meters, timed spaces, pay lots, reserved spaces (including 24-hr. reserved spaces) and "no parking areas" are always enforced during student break times. Permit enforcement always resumes at 7:00 a.m. whenever classes resume after holiday/break times.
Student break and holiday dates are posted in "How Not to Get a Ticket" on the Manage My Parking Page.
