Permits provide access to designated surface lot parking and may provide garage access depending on the type of permit purchased. However, permit holders parked in designated surface lot hourly parking spaces and at single-space meters are required to pay the hourly rate. 
  

Link Your Vehicle License Plate to Your Permit

Paid permit verification is accomplished solely through license plate recognition technology; as such, it is important that license plate information be kept current at all times.

Up to two vehicles may be linked to a permit, but only one vehicle at a time may be parked on campus without additional payment. Paid hourly parking or a valid visitor permit is required for an additional linked vehicle to be parked on campus simultaneously.

Customers are responsible for ensuring that correct license plate information is linked to their permit. Failure to do so may result in citations.

License plate information may be updated by logging in to the online self-service portal and clicking on Link Vehicle(s) to Permit.
  

Event Hangtag

An event hangtag is included with the purchase of an annual permit. A hangtag is not proof of paid parking and only provides access to selected event parking.

Presentation of the event hangtag is required for no-cost entry into lots sold at an event rate, regardless of final destination. Annual permit holders unable to present an event hangtag will be required to pay the nonrefundable event rate.

Customers are encouraged to have their event hangtag readily available year round.
  

Extended Parking

Vehicles parked in one area for more than 72 consecutive hours without prior authorization will be cited as abandoned and moved at the owner’s expense. Customers who would like to leave a car parked on campus for an extended period of time should contact the CampusParc Customer Service Center.
