University Policy on Smoking

Students, faculty, staff and other individuals have expressed serious concerns regarding the safety of individuals exposed to secondhand smoke on the campus. In response to these concerns, the Environmental Health & Safety Department would like to remind everyone of the University’s Smoking Policy that prohibits smoking inside and within twenty-five feet from all facilities and in all vehicles.

For more information and/or to read the entire official policy please visit the following webpage:


Housing Parking Permit

If you have a car or motorcycle on campus, you may only park in student lots and you must have a CPP parking permit clearly displayed in your vehicle at all times. Permits can be purchased at the University Cashier’s Office located on the first floor of the CLA building. Several parking lots have been reserved for residential students only. To park in these lots, please exchange your existing parking permit for a Resident Parking Permit at Parking and Transportation Services, located in Building 109. Bring your parking permit and Bronco ID or valid driver’s license to obtain a Resident Permit. Vehicles parked in residential lots not displaying the Resident Parking Permit will be subject to citation.


What is FERPA?

FERPA governs the limited release of these records (known as education records) maintained by an educational institution and access to these records. For more information on FERPA regulations please visit their website.

  • View contact and emergency information for accuracy
  • Update contact and emergency information, when needed
  • Complete the contracting steps to lock in your space for next year
  • Participate in important housing processes such as Room Selection (selecting a space for the next Academic Year)

At different times, additional features will be added for residents, such as the ability to request or perform room changes and signing up for waiting lists or lotteries.
