How to Apply for an Employee Parking Permit

What do I do for a parking permit until I get my permanent permit?

The Onboarding Center sends new employees a link to print a temporary parking permit for immediate use and assists the employee in applying for a permanent parking permit through My Pack Portal.

When can I apply for an employee permit?

When you have your nine-digit campus ID number.

What are my options for applying for a permit?

  • My Pack Portal: Online by visiting MyPackPortal > Employee Self Service > Compensation and Benefits.
  • Transportation Office: Bring a completed parking permit request/authorization form signed by your supervisor.

You will need your vehicle information make, model, and license plate number.

When will I receive my permit?

A multi-year permit is mailed to the employee's campus or home address (whichever address employee designates) within three - five business days.

Where will I park?

Employee parking is assigned based on your primary work location. Staff are usually assigned either a C or a deck parking permit. If parking is not available in areas near the work location, parking will be assigned in the closest available parking area. Employees desiring a "B" permit may also place their names on the "B" waitlist.

Cost? Annual cost depends on the permit type you purchase.

Temporary and Part-Time Employee Parking

Temporary and part-time employees may purchase parking permits by the day, week or month. Transportation will make every effort to assign temporary employees a "C" or deck parking permit. All parking assignments are subject to space availability.

Please visit the Transportation office to purchase a permit.
