Report your lost or stolen permit.

Immediately file a missing permit report (Word file) and take it to the parking office (hours, map).

  • Only the registered permit holder can file a missing permit report.
  • Annual permit replacements are free.
  • Short-term permit replacements must be purchased, so protect your short-term permit.
  • Your lost or stolen permit becomes invalid after you file a missing permit report.

Report missing permits purchased by departments or organizations.

Immediately report any loss or theft of permits your department or organization has purchased in bulk.

  • Take proof-of-purchase documentation to the parking office (hours, map) to cancel a lost or stolen permit and add it to the missing-permits list.
  • Contact the UCSD Police Department immediately if multiple permits are missing.
  • Purchase replacement permits at the parking office. A discounted rate is available in some situations — complimentary replacements are not available.

Never display a permit that has been listed as missing.

The parking office officially lists annual permits missing under the following conditions:

  • A missing permit report is filed by a permit holder who suspects the permit lost or stolen.
  • The permit holder leaves the university without returning the permit to the parking office.
  • Parking fee payments have lapsed and the parking office’s attempts to contact the permit holder fail.

To be sure you’re not displaying a permit listed as missing:

  • Purchase your permit from the parking office only. Refuse any offer to use a permit someone else purchased.
  • Return a found permit to the parking office immediately. The penalty for using a permit that’s been reported missing is $350.
