  • This permit is valid in any lot designated as a "Commuter" lot. Please utilize the parking map associated with each location below for the best lot to park in.
  • Please note that if you utilize the gated visitors lot located on Buchtel Avenue or any street meter space, you are subject to fees associated with parking in that area. This gated lot does not honor the parking permit we have issued for you as an Orientation visitor.
