Parking Reciprocity for Visiting UC Faculty and Staff

Learn about a systemwide parking reciprocity agreement for UC faculty and staff.

The systemwide parking reciprocity policy helps UC faculty and staff conduct business at other campuses by providing limited complimentary or discounted parking permits.

UCSD visitors

Visiting UC faculty and staff who hold annual permits at their home campuses are eligible for up to 5 consecutive days of complimentary parking at UCSD.

  • Purchase a short-term or annual parking permit if your visit will exceed 5 days.
  • Obtain your complimentary parking permit by presenting your valid UC ID and current home campus parking permit at either of these locations:

    Staff at these locations can provide maps, shuttle and bus schedules, and directions to the nearest parking locations.

UCSD faculty and staff visiting other campuses

Reciprocal parking privileges vary by campus. If you plan to conduct business at another campus, contact its parking office for details:

Note: Reciprocal parking privileges do not apply to UC students. Students visiting another campus must pay for parking
