USM Public Safety

Parking and Transportation

The Parking and Transportation Offices are located on the first floor of the  Parking Garage on the Portland Campus, and Public Safety headquarter (28 Husky Drive) on the Gorham Campus.

Parking and Transportation is responsible for  issuing parking permits,  collecting fines for parking violations, and answering any questions you may have about parking on campus.

For your convenience parking permits for students may also be obtained at the Campus Card Offices located at Payson-Smith Hall (96 Falmouth Street in Portland) and Upton Hastings Hall (52 University Way in Gorham).

Faculty/Staff parking permits currently must be purchased at the Parking and Transportation offices either in Portland or Gorham.

There is no charge for parking your vehicle in the parking garage,  however a parking permit is required for any vehicle parked on a surface lot.  Visitor passes may be obtained for short term parking at both Parking and Transportation offices as well as Public Safety offices in Portland and Gorham.

If you receive a parking ticket and wish to appeal the violation, please go to one of the links listed below for appeals.  This form must be completed within 10 days.

Parking and Transportation is also responsible for the management of the shuttle bus contract. For further information on the shuttle bus service and schedules, please click on the links below.
