Parking Access Gate Project Updates


Q: Why do I need new parking access device?

A: Parking & Transportation Services is installing new access gate readers that will replace the existing readers. Your old access device* will become obsolete once all gate readers have been installed.


Q: Who needs a new device?

A:  All authorized individuals who currently have an access gate device must obtain a new device in order to enter their assigned parking areas.


Q: When will I be able to use my new device?

A:  New access gate devices are set to begin working on Monday, December 22 at the central campus streets access gates only. Gates at C lots will remain in the up position while we continue to program user access. We hope to have all gates in the down position by Tuesday, January 6, 2015. A broadcast e-mail will be provided to notify our campus community.


Q: Where should I put my new device?

A: If you choose to attach the transferrable device to your vehicle, we recommend that you place it inside of the windshield above the state inspection sticker on the driver side.


Q: When will my old device stop working?

A: Old devices will stop working Friday, December 19, 2014. The gates will remain in the up position. On Monday, December 22, only the central campus streets access gates will be in the down position and a new device will be required. If you have not obtained a new access device by Monday, January 5, 2015, enter central campus through one of the manned parking booths for access during this transition. Visit the Parking Services Counter as soon as possible to secure your new device as all gates will be in the down position on Tuesday, January 6, 2015.

In order for us to properly assist you, please bring your valid photo ID (your LSUID card is preferred). You will need to provide your LSU 89 number for verification purposes and we will only issue a device to the rightful owner.

* You do not have to turn in your old device when you get your new one. Feel free to discard/recycle once the old device is obsolete.

Please contact us at or 225-578-5000 with any additional questions you may have. Again, we thank you for your continued patience while we strive to improve your on-campus parking experience.

Students to Resume Normal Zone Parking

Effective immediately, all students must resume parking in their normally designated zones during the hours of zone parking (weekdays from 7 PM – 4:30 PM).
