Annual Parking Permits for Faculty and Staff

Cars in a parking lot

Annual permits let faculty and staff use the same permit year-round. Find your best option from a variety of permit types.


In the right place? You can also see rates for short-term permits or student annual permits.

University or state funds may not be used to purchase staff parking permits, and faculty and staff may not use a university-funded permit.

See Where and When to Park for parking privileges and restrictions. When you're ready to buy, bring your campus ID and license plate number(s) to a campus parking office. Payroll deduction is available for all annual permits (except department reserved).

Expiration and cancellation:

  • An annual permit expires each year on June 30, and payroll deductions end. (You can also pay the annual rate upfront.) Each year, you must purchase a new permit. To cancel, submit a cancellation/refund form (PDF) and surrender your permit to the parking office to stop payroll deductions or to receive any refund due.
  • A multiyear A or B permit does not expire until you surrender it to a parking office. Payroll deductions for multiyear permits will continue indefinitely until you submit a cancellation/refund form (PDF) and surrender the permit. Multiyear permits are only available with payroll deduction.
