Parking Permits and Enforcement update

Parking permits are still available to be picked up in the Parking and Transportation Services office located in Lot 26, the North Campus Deck.

Enforcement of all parking regulations will begin Tuesday Sept. 8, 2015. All vehicles should be located in a properly designated area by that date to avoid being cited. 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.
