Wolf Pack Wednesday: Parking + Books

Subject line: The Rundown on Parking 🚗 and Books 📚

Sent: August 4, 2021


Parking Services

Loyola Parking Services is looking forward to a new academic year with you in it! All students who are enrolled in on-campus classes for the upcoming academic year and who wish to park on campus must purchase a virtual parking permit. Once completed, your license plate will be used as your permit to park on campus, so you won’t need to pick up a physical permit for your vehicle to gain authorized parking access. 

You can order your permit online in just a few easy steps!

  • Log in through the Single Sign On (SSO) portal 
  • Click on the “Parking Services” option in your SSO Apps
  • Select the “Permit” button in the top left hand corner of the page
  • Follow the steps on the screen to add the permit to your cart and checkout 
  • Once you complete the application, you will receive an automated email which lists the information you provided 
  • The application requires three business days for processing 
  • Once your application is processed, you will receive a second email informing you that your permit is active, listing the location and hours valid, if applicable 

In order to have a virtual permit, you must be enrolled in classes for the semester and show current vehicle registration, no exceptions.

Please note: the application is only accessible through student accounts. The Parents’ LORA account does not have the parking application.  

Contact our department if you have any questions or concerns.
