Virtual Permits

As a reminder, most permits are virtual permits, meaning one will not be issued or mailed a physical hangtag permit. Your license plate serves as your permit. Your permit will be valid once purchased. Instructions on how to add and change your vehicles are available online. Please note that your license plate must be attached to your permit, not just your parking account.

  • Faculty/staff spring semester permits are valid until August 31, 2024.
  • Separate summer-only permits will be available for purchase in May 2024.
