Campus parking requires a valid University of Vermont parking permit. Employees or Affiliated Organization employees may be asked to provide a valid ID or proof of employment in order to verify eligibility. Location eligibility is determined by the work address of the employee in accordance with Human Resources records. Parking services reserves the right to assign parking based on space availability regardless of campus address.

Access to spaces closer to core campus buildings (known as 'Green Zone' parking) will be allocated to faculty and staff based on a waitlist. Employees must request to be placed on a waitlist and will be notified by email when space becomes available. 

Vehicles assigned to parking permits must always be current. You may contact our office for assistance, or refer to our customer portal to update records. 

University of Vermont parking permits are non-transferable. If an employee's status changes and they are no longer eligible, they must return their parking permit to our office. The use of a parking permit by any other individual may constitutes a violation.
