Home / Parking / Uptown Campus Parking / NEW! Fully Digital Permits / NEW! Fully Digital Parking Permits
Parking Services is happy to announce that all uptown parking permits will be fully digitized starting Sept. 1, 2022.
This means you’ll have one less line to wait in when you arrive on campus in the fall. You’ll be able to purchase a permit and update your account online, at your convenience. And you’ll no longer have to keep track of hangtags or paper receipts.
All parking permits will be monitored by a parking enforcement vehicle equipped with cameras that read license plates. This means permit holders will need to make sure their license plate is visible. We ask that permit holders make sure license plates face the driving lane so that each license plate can smile for the camera.
Do I still have to pay for a parking permit if permits are digital?
Yes. All permits will have a cost associated with them.
What if I don’t have a device to purchase a permit online?
If you do not have a device for purchasing a permit, you can go to the Campus Services office on the uptown campus, located at 107 Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life, which is on McAlister Drive.
Can I reverse into a parking spot?
Sometimes. You can reverse into a spot if your license plate faces the driving lane.
I have a license plate on the front of my vehicle, can I reverse into the parking spot since my license plate will be visible to the monitoring camera?
Yes. You can reverse into a spot if your license plate faces the driving lane.
Can I put a cover over my vehicle?
No. Vehicles parked on campus may not use a cover on their vehicle as this may prevent the parking enforcement cameras from reading the license plate.
Can I still add multiple vehicles to one permit?
Yes. However, only one car at a time can be used on campus per permit.
If I can add multiple vehicles to one permit, can I also add multiple users?
No. Only the account holder is allowed to use their registered permit.
What if I am parking a rented vehicle?
Since Parking Services no longer requires a physical permit to be displayed on the uptown campus, visitors can use their smart phone to purchase a permit once they have the license plate number of the rented vehicle.
What if I have a scratch-off permit?
You can use your scratch-off permit until it expires.
What if I typically buy daily parking passes?
You can still use an onsite physical pay station, or you can use the online system to purchase a daily permit.
Can I park anywhere on campus now, including reserved spots?
No. The same parking rules and regulations apply to digital parking permits. For more information, view the uptown parking rules and regulations.
