Parking Office

Downstate's Parking Office is a unit of  University Police which authorizes ALL Monthly Parking lot location assignments issues Vehicle Parking Stickers (and a KCH Access card for KCH locations) and all lot transfer requests. AFTER  you receive a Parking Office authorized monthly lot assignment, the Faculty Student Association (FSA of DMC Inc.) administers parking daily operational and payment matters at ALL locations. Parking at SUNY Downstate facilities is very limited. See also: Other Parking Resources (link)

Office Location: inside the University Police Building at 750 New York Ave (on corner of Clarkson Ave).

HOURS:   Normal business office hours are Mon to Fri. 9am to 3pm  Call first to be sure a Parking Office staffmember is present.

If you make advance arrangements with the Parking Office, you may be able to pick up or return your sticker or KCH Access Card after hours since there is usually UPolice staff on duty 24/7 at this UPolice building.

New Customers Requesting Monthly Parking -Instructions

1. Sign up on wait list: Add your name to the Monthly Parking Wait List by eMail - USE THIS eMail LinkInclude your lot location preference(s), and if applicable, your desired/ estimated future start date. See Monthly Parking Summary (link), and Parking Location Map (link)


All lots currently at capacity and have waitlists. For estimated waitlist times frames for each lot, see Link to more detail on each location. You will receive an eMail from Parking Office with a monthly parking offer when your name is reached on the waitlist.

The waitlist time frame for new customers is historically shortest at the 600Albany lot.  It’s often more expeditious to first become a Monthly Parking customer at any available lot, then request a Lot Transfer (instructions link) to your preferred lot location(s), since lot vacancies are filled first from the Monthly Parking Lot Transfer list. See also: parking waitlist process (link)

New incoming students can't apply for a Parking waitlist or set up a parking portal account until they have accepted admission and obtain a eMail address.

2. After you receive a monthly parking offer from Parking Office: Set Up New Monthly Parking Portal instructions (link). All parking portal SignUps require checking the box that you have read and accept Parking Terms and Conditions (link). Additional instructions will then be eMailed to you.

Once established, your monthly parking continues each month until/ unless you CANCEL it (link). Once cancelled, you need to re-apply as a new customer. Parking rates increase Jan 1st of each year per the negotiated  5-year Parking Rate Plan.  Payment for Monthly Parking is required for the month even if you will not be on campus; with exception made only for HR approved Leaves of Absence, as per 6/2020 centerwide announcement (link)

If you were a prior Monthly Parking customer with a Downstate Parking portal, your prior portal will be reactivated - you will need to review and update any portal profile details for currently accuracy (your vehicle details, contact info, and affiliation category, etc..).

Monthly Parking Lot Transfers-Instructions: Current Monthly Parking customers requesting Lot Transfers: send eMail to: USE THIS eMail Link. Include your contact info as well as your lot preference(s); lot map link. If you cancel your current monthly subscription, your waitlist status changes from Lot Transfer to New Customer and your wait time estimate increases significantly.

Monthly Parking Office Waitlist Process: Wait time depends on when current monthly parkers cancel (creating a vacancy to fill), or persons ahead of you on the waitlist decline transfer offers. You will receive an eMail from Parking Office with a transfer offer when your name is reached on the waitlist.

When a monthly space vacancy becomes available, requested lot transfers are filled first based on the date of transfer request date. Remaining vacancies are then filled from the new customer monthly parking wait list, in the date order of waitlist sign up. Hint: It’s typically more expeditious to first become a Monthly Parking customer at any available lot, then request a Lot Transfer to your preferred lot location(s), since lot vacancies are filled first from the Monthly Parking Lot Transfer list. For estimated waitlist times frames for new monthly customers at each lot, see Link to more detail on each location.

We highly recommend you add and "whitelist" these eMail addresses: (1) "" and (2) "Downstate Parking Portal " on your Downstate Outlook eMail contacts, to ensure future incoming eMails go to your Downstate "focused" eMail inbox.

Parking Office solicitations to fill monthly parking vacancies are sent solely via email and include the deadline by which you must reply. As a reminder, if you are offered a monthly parking lot assignment and you decline or do not respond to the offer by the deadline given, your name is removed from the wait list and you must re-apply to the wait list.

If you cancel your monthly parking, or choose not to accept your current lot assignment/offer, you forfeit all Downstate Monthly parking privileges and your current parking seniority date. Should you desire any future monthly parking, you need to send eMail to (link) to have your name added to the bottom of the monthly parking waiting list.

If your status changes: including Cancellations (link), Separation/Retirements, or official HR approved Leaves of Absence (link), you need to TIMELY notify the Parking Office. Send eMail to: and must be received prior to start of each monthly cycle (1st day of each month).
