Occasional Use Parking Permit Program

The goal of the Occasional Use Parking Program is to provide a way for people who ordinarily commute to campus to occasionally park on campus. The program is intended for full-time faculty, or staff.

Faculty, Staff and Affiliated Staff

Those wishing to park on campus occasionally may do so by purchasing daily permits upon surrendering their full time hangtag and enrolling in this program. One-day permit per month of full time employment per permit cycle (i.e.; 9mos.,12mos., etc.) is available at no cost. Additional permits cost:

  • Green Zone (if eligible) - $4.00
  • White Zone - $3.00
  • Brown Zone - $2.00

Example: A 9-month faculty member wishes to partake of this program at the beginning of the next permit cycle (June 1). They will receive nine one-day free permits and be eligible to purchase individual permits if need be.

The cost of the permits is set in such a manner that most people will realize a monthly savings on parking if the option is used one day per week. We encourage those interested in the program to choose their best option.

Faculty and Staff members will have the option to choose the Zone for which they are eligible based on their campus address. The Green occasional use permit option is wait list controlled the same as the full time Green Permit option.

Occasional use permits follow the same permit cycle as regular permits (June 1st – May 31). Previously issued permits will expire on May 31st. Anyone wishing to continue with program must reapply.


Faculty or Staff refers collectively to University personnel who provide or support the instructional, research, and public service activities of the University.

Affiliated Staff refers to individuals who are employed by organizations that do business at the University and are such designated by Human Resources as affiliated. This will also include contractors with office space at the University.


Obtaining occasional use permits

Eligible students may obtain a permit by coming to our office at 38 Fletcher Place. Payments for permits can be made by cash, check, credit card or CAT$cratch.

We do not accept debit cards.

Use of permits

The customer is responsible for filling in the "expires" area of the permit with the date the permit is being used with an indelible marker provided by Transportation and Parking Services. These permits are valid only in the area as indicated in writing on the front of the permit. Any use of permits for purposes other than intended, or failure to fill in an expiration date, may result in a violation being issued or may result in the loss of eligibility for this program.
