How to order your parking permit through iParq

Quick Tips:

  • You must log in with your existing iParq account or create a new iParq account. Your UANET ID cannot be used to log in at this time.
  • If you do not see the appropriate permit options after searching with your emplID number, please contact the Parking Office to have this issue corrected.
  • If the permit you selected was removed from your cart after the account creation step, then your emplID was entered incorrectly during account creation. Please contact the Parking Office to have this corrected.
  • Once your vehicle(s) have been added to your account, make sure they are selected in the dropdown box(es) during the permit checkout process in order to associate them with your permit.
  • To purchase a commuter student overnight parking permit you must first proceed completely through checkout with one of the regular commuter student permits before adding the overnight permit to your cart.
