Registration and Decals

All vehicles parking on campus, with the exception of day visitors, are required to be registered with the Office of Safety and Security. All students, faculty and staff should register on-line:

FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS DO NOT HAVE CAMPUS PARKING PRIVILEGES AND MAY NOT REGISTER ANY TYPE OF MOTORIZED VEHICLE WITH BOWDOIN COLLEGE.

Parking Decal 2018-19When registering a vehicle you will be issued a parking decal. The decal must be displayed on a clean and dry area on the right side of the rear bumper of your vehicle. One decal will be issued for each faculty/staff vehicle registered. Students may only register one vehicle.

Parking decals are the property of Bowdoin College. The College reserves the right to revoke parking privileges. In the event of revocation, the decal must be removed and returned to the Office of Safety and Security.

Registering your vehicle whether you are a student, faculty, or staff grants you permission to park in Bowdoin designated lots based on the type of permit you have, but having a permit does not guarantee that a space is available in a location that is convenient to you. The Farley/Watson lots usually have ample spaces to park in.
