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 contacting Customer Service or by logging in to the online self-service portal via the website homepage. See the Updating Vehicle Information how-to guide for detailed instructions.
Customers who purchase an annual permit are provided an annual access keycard with a unique QR code, which facilitates garage access if included in the permit purchase. In addition to facilitating garage access, the keycard provides access to event parking facilities.
Presentation of an annual access keycard provides no-cost entry into surface lots being sold at an event rate, regardless of final destination. Additionally, customers whose permit normally provides access to the garage being sold at an event rate may use their annual access keycard to enter the garage at no cost.
During campus-wide events (known as global events), such as football or select stadium concerts, an annual access keycard grants access to all public day-of-event facilities.
Annual permit holders unable to present an annual access keycard will be required to pay the nonrefundable event parking rate to enter the facility. Permit holders are encouraged to have their annual access keycard readily available year-round.
Overnight permit parking is restricted to designated rows on the west end of Carmack Lot 5.
