Returning Student Parking Registration


Distribution of parking is based on “longevity” of a students tenure at MUSC and registration will occur over a two-day period in which returning students will be assigned access to the site based on the number of semesters they have accrued to this point.  Additionally, students who feel that their “academic requirements place them at an undue safety risk” will be given the opportunity to submit a request to their respective college’s Associate Dean.


Registration Dates:  Parking registration for returning students will take place March 18 - 19, 2024 on the Aims Parking website.  Your registration date will be assigned based on the number of semesters you have enrolled.  You will receive notice of your assigned registration date the week before.  If you need assistance during online registration, please email the student parking registration help desk at from Monday, March 18 at 8:30 AM through Tuesday, March 19 until 5:00 PM.

Online parking registration will continue Wednesday, March 20 – Friday, March 22 and any questions during this time (or any other time throughout the year) should be emailed to Allison Mergler in the Office of Parking Management at

Parking decals will NOT be mailed. Parking Management will use Virtual Permitting to monitor cars/parking lots.

Any unclaimed parking spaces after registration will be distributed through the Office of Parking Management starting Monday, April 8, 2024.
