Parking & Traffic Advisory



Due to switch installation work being conducted at the Carle Place Train Station, there will be NO train service to the Mineola Train Station on the following Saturdays and Sundays:

  • October 3-4
  • October 10-11
  • October 17-18 
  • October 24-25 

On the dates mentioned above, the Hofstra Train Shuttle will be making hourly stops at the Hempstead Train Station. 

We ask when utilizing the Hofstra Train Shuttle, please only sit in the designated seats and masks are required to be worn while riding the bus. 


Students, faculty, and staff can register their vehicle by clicking on the following link:


After logging into the Hofstra portal you will be brought directly to the parking permit form.  You will be asked to complete a series of questions related to the vehicle you intend to register for this academic year and upon submission will be able to download the parking permit.  If you are submitting the information via a method that does not have access to a printer, when you are ready to print the permit, you can access the permit by selecting on the parking permits icon in the myapps section of your portal. This is also a method to reprint your permit in the event it gets lost.  You may only register one vehicle per person per academic year. 

If you mistype your license plate, need a temporary parking permit at any point during the year, or drive a motorcycle, please email: Parkingpermits@Hofstra.Edu.  Someone will respond to you during business hours Monday through Friday. 

Finally, as the parking program requires you to print out your permit, please know that parking hangtags for you to insert your permit into will be distributed to employees and students in various locations such as parking lots when classes begin, Card Services if you are a new commuting student, and will be made available in various locations such as academic offices, the student center, and outside the building of Public Safety beginning August 24.  In the meantime, please display your printed permit without cutting it down on the dashboard of your vehicle.  Resident students will just be required to leave the printed permit on the dashboard of the vehicle.
