Resident Student Parking

A resident student is a student who resides on campus in the dormitories.

Resident students who park a vehicle on any of the MCC Campuses are required to go on-line to their MCC parking account and request parking at the start of each semester.  When students request parking, they are also required to register the license plate(s) of all the vehicle(s) they may be parking on campus. Parking registration is available online 24 hours after you register for classes.

Parking Enforcement

Parking enforcement begins approximately 2 weeks following the start of each semester to ensure students have time to register for parking. 

Fall and Spring semesters:  A transportation fee is placed on the student's tuition bill at the time the student registers for classes if they are taking at least one on-campus class. 

Summer and Intersession semesters:  Students are not charged a parking registration fee until after they have registered their vehicle(s) online.  The payments for the transportation fee or parking registration are taken by the Student Accounts Office.  The payments for parking violations are taken by the Parking Services Office.

How To Register

There is no additional charge for registering multiple vehicles on your parking account. However only one vehicle that you have registered is allowed on campus at a time. Any students who have parents that are employees, must still register their vehicle(s) even if it is being shared. Instructions for registering your vehicle(s) are as followed:

  • Log into your  MCC account with your MCC network account and password
  • Select the "Student Home" box
  • Select the "Parking" box
  • Select the "MCC Login" and log into the MCC Parking Portal using the same MCC email and password as above
  • Click on "Register Vehicle"
  • Read the Terms of Service.  You must click "yes" to continue.  *Agreeing to the terms will allow financial aid to cover your parking permit fee, only if you are awarded enough to cover the balance.*
  • Select the Semester Permit you are requesting.
  • Select either a "Vehicle Listed" (a previously registered vehicle) or select "Add a Vehicle" to enter a new vehicle.
  • Select "Confirm" in the bottom right corner
  • Select "Add permit to Cart"
  • Select "Checkout".  This will generate a Confirmation Number and complete the registration process.  *If you do not receive a confirmation number, you did not fully complete the registration process.*

All license plate numbers registered must be accurate in order for your parking registration to be valid.

To register additional vehicles at any time during the semester:

  • Log into your parking account and click on "Add or Change Vehicles" 
  • Click on "Add a New Vehicle" in the upper right corner
  • Click on your current permit under "Permit to Modify" and enter the new vehicle information 
  • Select "Confirm"

To add a rental/loaner vehicle to your account:

  • Log into your parking account and click on "Add or Change Vehicles"
  • Find your current vehicle and click on "Temporary Replacement" under the license plate
  • Enter the vehicle information of the rental/loaner vehicle
  • Select "Confirm"
  • Select the dates you need the temporary vehicle, and click "Confirm"

The vehicle information will switch back to your permanent vehicle automatically once the time frame you entered has expired.

If you have any difficulties or require more assistance, please email or call the Parking Services Office.  You can also visit the office in person during normal business hours.


Parking lots R, S and T are designated for resident students only. Between the hours of midnight and 6:00 am, all resident students must be parked in one of those three lots. Anyone parked outside of those lots will be subject to ticketing.

Parking lots C, D, E, F, G, H, H1, J M, M1 and Q are also designated for all students on the Brighton Campus between the hours of 6:00 am and midnight. After 5:00 pm, lots A and K on the Brighton Campus are also available for all students who have a valid semester parking registration.

Registered students are prohibited from parking in the visitor’s lot (lot V) for any reason.

Resident Guests/Visitors

Resident students who wish to have a guest park on campus must purchase a guest permit either online or on your MCC parking account, or in person from Parking Services (Building 21, Room 140) during business hours. All guests must park in parking lots R, S, or T only.  The cost for a guest/visitor permit is $1 for a 24-hour period.  Please plan accordingly.

Guests/Visitor Permits obtained from the Parking Services Office are paper permits and must be displayed visibly on the vehicle's dashboard. All information must be written in pen with no alterations. Any alterations on the permits will void the permit and cause the vehicle to be subject to ticketing.

Resident visitors and guests are not permitted to park in Parking Lot V (Visitor Lot) for any reason.
