Faculty and Staff Parking Permit Reciprocity

University of California Policy

The University of California campuses offer reciprocity for faculty and staff parking permits. Each campus has a unique set of circumstances relating to various parking issues (space availability, rates, access by gate, kiosks, specific designated lots, etc.). Because of these differences the permit holder should contact the campus parking office of the campus they plan to visit to arrange reciprocal parking. By contacting the campus, faculty and staff will know what to expect before they arrive.

The individual must present a current proof of a valid parking permit from their home campus as well as a current UC ID in order to be eligible for reciprocal parking.

Reciprocity among the UC campuses expedites University business for faculty and staff members at the host campus and is valid for up to five consecutive days per quarter. If an employee from another UC campus is working or teaching for a longer period than five days, they must purchase a permit from the host campus.

Student permits do not have reciprocity. Students from other UC campuses must purchase parking at each individual campus according to the availability and rate for that campus. If a student from one campus is enrolled in a class at another campus, the student should apply for a permit according to the regulations and eligibility set forth by the host campus.
