Commuter Waitlist

Commuters will have the option to add themselves to the new commuter waitlist. If you do not receive the zone of your choice you can add yourself to the commuter waitlist through the parking portal at myparking.msstate.edu.

This can be done by selecting "Add/Edit Waitlist" located at the top of the parking portal page as well as below "Get Permit" at the bottom of the parking portal page. The commuter can choose and rank their top 3 zones to be added to the waitlist. If you are awarded one of your waitlist choices, you will receive an email with the zone you are awarded. You will have 3 business days to come in to our office at the Roberts Building with your award letter to switch your permitted zone. After 3 business days, you will be removed from the commuter waitlist and will have to re-add yourself. 

If you are awarded your first choice, you will come off the waitlist for your second and third choice. If you are awarded your second choice, you will come off your third choice and remain on your first choice. If you are awarded your third choice, you will remain on your first and second choice.

The commuter waitlist is awarded on a first come first serve basis.
