    Fall 2016 parking permits are still available to be picked up in the Parking and Transportation Services office located in the North Campus Deck. Commuter students who need to park from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. will need to purchase the Overnight Parking validation to park in designated overnight parking lots. Graduate Assistants must have an approved permit application in the system for overnight access.

    Enforcement of general permit and overnight parking regulations will begin Tuesday Sept. 6, 2016. As in previous years, the first citation will be issued as a warning for select minor violations; such as not displaying a permit or expired parking meters. Parking regulations will be enforced 24 / 7 on the main campus by both parking employees and the UAPD.
