Transportation Services is transforming our parking operations with new technology that offers increased flexibility and reliability. These changes will simultaneously provide better options to purchase parking permits, while also utilizing the University’s parking infrastructure more efficiently. Customers will be able to buy and manage most parking products online. Most products will no longer require a paper permit and will instead be tied to a license plate. Several existing products are also being modified.

Most current customers do not need to take any action until it is time to renew their permits. Customers who currently use Individual Commuter Tickets (ICTs) will need to act sooner, as will department and event coordinators

Thank you for your patience as we update our parking system. Here are the key dates to know:

  • Thursday, Dec. 3: Last day to purchase new ICTs or return old ones for a refund.
  • Thursday, Dec. 10 - Monday, Dec. 14: Parking system transition. You will not be able to conduct transactions with the Transportation Services office during this period. Campus gatehouses and parking lots will be open.

  • Tuesday, Dec. 15: New parking system launches. You will be able to log in to the new customer portal starting on this day.

For more information about the new customer portal, check out the user guide. For more information about how specific products are changing, please see the links below.  If you are interested in learning more about the project as a whole, please visit the parking modernization page.

Night permits

Faculty and staff who plan to park every night may purchase a night permit valid from 4 p.m.– 8 a.m. the following morning. Permits will be linked to vehicle license plates, with no need to display a paper permit.

  • Parking lots are assigned each quarter based on lot availability at the time of purchase.
  • Permits in ungated parking lots or garages will be available for purchase via the online customer portal, as well as in person at the Transportation Services office. Office operations have been impacted by COVID-19 and visits are by appointment only. Review our current operating hours and protocols for office visits.
  • Permits in gated facilities must be purchased through the Transportation Services office.
  • If you are eligible to obtain an out-of-area permit, you will be able to do so through the customer portal as well as at one of the gatehouses on campus.

Faculty and staff who park on campus infrequently may wish to purchase the new Daily Night permits.

  • Lots are selected when purchasing the permit on the online customer portal, based on space availability at the time of purchase.
  • Permits are available the same day or up to two weeks in advance.
  • You can purchase up to 10 Daily Night permits at a time.
  • Rate for the Daily Night permits is the same as for the Night permits ($2.92 per day).
  • Valid from 4 p.m. to midnight.

Night permit holders who work later than expected can purchase a Night Overtime permit through the customer portal. This permit is sold at the daily rate (currently $8.75 as of FY21) for any time after 8 a.m. and is valid until the following midnight. When purchasing a Night Overtime permit, it is valid for the current calendar day only, so it should not be purchased before midnight.

What’s changing:

  • Permits will be linked to vehicle license plates. You will be able to manage this online.
  • Please continue to use your existing quarterly paper permit for now. You will switch to the license plate-linked permit when you next renew your products or if you make any changes to your permit after mid-December.
  • Night Overtime permits will be available online, rather than needing to call the Transportation Services office and then stopping at a campus gatehouse. Night Overtime permits will be sold at the daily rate, rather than by the hour.
