Rec Center Members


Parking with a Rec Center Membership

If you will be using the Rec Center or Kelly Family Sports Center facilities, you will need a parking permit, unless you choose to park and pay at a meter or pay station.

  • While you have an active Rec Center membership, you are eligible for a no cost permit valid for parking in the student sections of Lots B, C, G and H.  The permit is NOT VALID at meters, pay to park lots or designated spaces.
  • Permits are issued one semester at a time and will expire on the end date of your membership or the end of the semester, whichever comes first.
  • Permits are not required to park in student parking spaces during the Spring and Summer semesters.
  • Rec Center permits cannot be issued or used by current students of the university.  Your permit privileges will be suspended if found to be in violation.
  • Only one permit can be issued per individual and may be transferred to additional vehicles as necessary.
  • Effective dates on permits must be visible and displayed at all times for the permit to be considered valid.
  • Parking Services can be contacted at 616-331-PARK (7275) during posted business hours.
  • Should you receive a citation while on campus, please refer to the information provided on the citation or visit Appeal Citation for citation appeal information.
