General Information for Students
Because of the two major building projects on campus, some of our parking space is moving to new parking lots on our perimeter. Construction zones may also keep staff and students from taking the shortest route from parking to your building. For this inconvenience, Lake Area Tech has waived the parking permit fee and will only charge a $10 service fee for all parking permits. This new procedure will be in effect until construction of the Diesel addition and Archway Complex is complete. Read more information on parking permits here. Parking permits DO NOT allow parking in visitor spots. Permit owners will be ticketed if they are parked in visitor parking. A parking permit is required to park in any LATC parking lot.
