The parking department at LMU utilizes license plate recognition (LPR) technology to identify registered vehicles and their parking privileges. No physical (hangtag/sticker) permit are issued. Registration and payment for parking are done online, via LMU Park found on the mylmu portal. Multiple vehicles may be registered, however, only one vehicle may be on campus at a time. Parking assignments are based on your association, so please review your parking privileges prior to parking on campus.
