Vehicle Registration

Before you can obtain your vehicle registration permit, you must have obtained your Student ID.

Vehicle registration is available 24 hours a day at the Valparaiso University Police Department (VUPD), 816 Union Street: You may obtain your parking decal at the VUPD Check-In table at the Café. Otherwise, each student may personally appear at the VUPD office to pick up their parking decals and pay the registration fee of $125.

  • Valid driver’s license
  • Proof of vehicle ownership (state title, license plate registration, or license-applied for permit); vehicles with dealer plates are not eligible for campus vehicle registration
  • Valparaiso University Student ID
  • Bill of Sale (Newly purchased vehicles only)
