Campus Parking and Permits

Please note the the 926 Main Street lot is designated for purple decal holders – 24-hour parking only. Commuters may no longer park in this lot.

Any individual, whether parking overnight or commuting, intending to park in a Clark University lot, is required to purchase a parking decal. Please click on the “purchase a parking decal using a credit card or bank account routing number” link at the bottom of the page to get started.

Decals for all 24-hour lots are sold out.

Commuters may purchase a decal using the link below.

Individuals who wish to be placed on a waiting list for any of our 24-hour lots should email PARKING@CLARKU.EDU. If you were unable to purchase a decal, you may seek out street parking around campus, and will be subject to the laws of the City of Worcester. Please visit HTTPS://WWW.WORCESTERMA.GOV/PARKING for more information about parking in the city of Worcester.

Once a decal is purchased for a certain lot, you will not have the option to change lots. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE OF THE ABILITY TO PURCHASE A DECAL ONCE BEING PLACED ON A WAITING LIST.


We are no longer accepting paper applications except for decals for additional vehicles and Fall Only decals (please read the 2023/2024 Parking Rules and Regulations for more information on these types of decals). These will have to be purchased in-person at the University Police station with cash (exact change) or a check made out to Clark University.

Decals CANNOT be transferred to another student. If a vehicle is found with an illegitimate parking decal, they will be ticketed and/or towed.

Your decal will be HELD AT THE POLICE STATION for you to pick upon arrival to campus.

The Out-of-State Motor Vehicle Form must be completed for every motor vehicle baring out-of-state (non-Massachusetts) license plates if parked in any of our 24-hour lots. If applicable, please complete this form and either deliver a copy in-person to the Clark Police station, send it through the mail, or email it to Unlike your parking decal, this decal should remain on your vehicle for as long as you attend classes at Clark and will not need to be renewed every year. If you have already received an Out-of-State decal from a previous year, It is not necessary to fill out this form again.

By purchasing a decal, you agree to having read and understood the information contained in the document titled “2023/2024 Parking Rules and Regulations”, which can be found below.
