Vehicle Registration

All faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students who drive a personal or commercial vehicle on the DBU campus are required to register their vehicle(s) and obtain a valid Parking Permit Decal for the current academic year. There is no specific fee for a Parking Permit Decal, but it is included in the applicable Student Services Fee.

Vehicle registration is available in the Campus Security Department, located on the lower level of the Patty and Bo Pilgrim Chapel. The office is always open.

Vehicle Registration Process

  • On-Campus Students must provide a Verification of Residency card

  • All applicants must show proof of car insurance
