Parking Services



NKU Parking Services will have new technology in all three garages. This project will be evolving throughout the summer. When you receive your new permit you will notice a black box at the bottom, this is a masked barcode. The new parking equipment will use a barcode scanner to read the barcode and open the gate. Garage attendants will be available during business hours throughout the semester to assist with the new technology. Please contact parking services with any questions or concerns.



UPDATE: Departmental Validations are being sent out, please check this flyer for additional information:
