For employees or frequent guests:

  • Request a parking card for department affiliates. Visitors present the card at a gatehouse to receive a daily parking permit or swipe it for gate arm access if appropriate.
  • Order a department out of area permit. When combined with any valid daytime parking permit, this enables department employees to park in various campus lots for up to three hours while conducting University business.
