Parking and Transportation


Virtual Parking Permits

Virtual permits allow you to park in your designated parking lots, and the license plate registered when you purchase a permit becomes your virtual parking permit.

Virtual permit also allows Parking & Transportation to support the University’s commitment to zero waste and campus sustainability while making purchasing parking permits more convenient, efficient and cost effective.
