The Campus Transportation Management and Identification Office accepts cash, credit and debit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover), checks and money orders.

Faculty and staff registering for parking must appear in person and should be prepared to provide their personal contact information (name, address and telephone number) and vehicle information (license plate number, state of registration, make, model and year of the vehicle).

Beginning Aug. 11, the Campus Transportation Management and Identification Office will temporarily relocate to the Pryzbyla Center, Room 321, to accommodate the number of people registering. The office will reopen on Monday Aug. 31, in its regular location at Leahy Hall, Room 121. A full schedule of hours and locations is available at http://publicsafety.cua.edu/vehicle.cfm.
