When you have registered for your courses for the current school semester, a campus (ID) card may be requested by logging into your campus card account.  Once logged in, click the link that says "Submit New Photo" and follow the directions. 

*Please note, if you are an online student you will be required to upload your official government-issued ID such as a Driver’s License or Passport for verification purposes.

The Campus Card Office is located at 115 Wilder Tower on the main campus and in 109 Varnell-Jones on the Lambuth Campus.

Step 8: Learn More About Parking on Campus

For students, General Permit Parking is paid for through the Maintenance Fee portion of your semester tuition. Once you have registered for classes, a semester validation sticker will be mailed to the address on file with Student Records. New students are mailed a permit (hangtag) along with a semester validation sticker prior to fee payment. The UofM permit (hangtag) must be updated every semester with a current semester validation sticker. Resident and priority parking is available for additional fees.
