Motor Vehicle Registration

All UNO students (inclusive of full-time, part-time, day, evening, Saturday only, etc.,) must purchase a parking decal prior to parking any vehicle on the main campus or east campus. All parking on campus (except in pay parking lots) is by parking permit only. Decals are issued Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. thru 4:30 p.m. at the University Police Office, 234 Computer Center, 2000 Lakeshore Drive, New Orleans, LA 70148.

To obtain a parking permit University Police requires:

  • Receipt from completion of online application for decal or payment receipt for a parking decal from the Bursar’s counter.
  • Current driver’s license
  • Current motor vehicle registration (if a new vehicle, present your temporary license plate, which is attached to the back of your temporary registration paper)


Vehicle Registration Fees

  1st Motor Vehicle Additional Motor Vehicle
Fall Semester $100 $50
Spring Semester $85 $43
Summer Session $60 $30
Student decals are issued beginning the first day of Late Registration. Residential decals for Pontchartrain Hall and Lafitte Village must be renewed each semester. Privateer Place decals are issued by Privateer Place management personnel. There is no cost for residential decals.
 
Fees are subject to change without prior notice, and no refunds will be issued. However, decals will be replaced without charge (e.g., to accommodate broken rear windshields, new car purchases, and similar situations) if they are removed (valid decals only) and brought (with the current year and number of the decal showing) to University Police; otherwise, students will be charged for an additional decal in accordance with the rates in effect for that particular semester.
 
The Parking Decal must be permanently affixed to the vehicle to which it is assigned. Registration is not complete until the decal is affixed to the outside lower part of the rear windshield on the left (driver’s) side in the self-adhesive manner. Decals are nontransferable.
