Parking Permit Options

I have received a number of calls related to parking permits and what folks can do if they already purchased an annual permit and may no longer want it. Here are some options:


Exchange an Annual Permit for a $24 Park-N-Ride permit

Tiger Transit operates two park-n-ride routes from the R-6 parking lot (located behind First Citizens Bank) and the P-6 parking lot (located at the Snow Center at Y-Beach). These permits are $24 for the year and permit users to park in the designated park-n-ride lot Monday – Thursday. After 4:30 p.m. each day and all day Friday, users may park on the main campus in either employee (if you an employee) or commuter (if you are a commuter) spaces.

To exchange out your annual parking permit:

  1. Bring your parking permit to Parking and Transportation Services

  2. Complete the payroll deduction form to change the deduction amount (only required if you are in payroll deduction).

  3. If you paid in full for your permit, the refund amount of your permit can be used to pay for the new permit.

  4. Pay the $6 permit exchange fee.


Return an Annual Permit

If you wish to return your parking permit in full you may do so at Parking and Transportation Services.

  1. Bring your parking permit to Parking and Transportation Services

  2. Complete the Payroll Deduction Termination Form (only if you are on payroll deduction)

  3. Complete the Refund Request Form (only if you paid in full for your permit). Please note that the refund will not be immediate.


Purchase Daily Permits for $2 per Day or several Temporary Scratch Off Permits

For those that ride the bus frequently or rarely drive to campus, there is a temporary parking permit option for you.


Online Temporary Permit for $2 per Day:

If you know you are going to be coming to campus, you can purchase online an employee temporary permit for $2 per day. 

  1. You follow the same steps above to access your Parking Portal and click “Get Permits”. You will

  2. Select  “Employee Temporary Permit”, check the boxes, and click “Next”.

  3. Select the date(s) you want your permit to be effective. If you only need one day, your Effective Date and Expiration Date will be the same day. These permits expire at 11:59 PM on the date of expiration.

  4. Complete the purchase process.

  5. Print and display the permit on your dash.


Temporary Scratch Off Permits:

For those that want to plan ahead or have added flexibility, you can purchase Temporary Scratch Off Permits in Parking and Transportation Services for $2 each. You can buy 1, 5, or 10 and keep them in your glove box. When you need to use one, take one out, scratch off the date you are using it (just like a lottery ticket), and hang it on your review mirror.  These permits will allow you to park according to the standard rules and regulations of any employee permit.
