    Permit Renewals

    In response to the COVID-19 impact on the University operations, Parking and Transportation has changed 2020 permit renewals. Learn more about 2020 permit renewal updates.

    • For annual employee parking permits extended to August 15, permit holders will be contacted directly by P&T in mid-July with options.
    • Anyone needing to park prior to mid-August should check the P&T operations page to determine where to park and/or ride the bus.
    • For Fall 2020, some parking designations and prices will change. Those who continue to telework but need access to Grounds occasionally will have access to new more flexible options.
    • All meter payments at recreation centers, on street, and in garages must be made via the Park Mobile app. Meters and pay stations have been removed.

    The University will not refund parking fees as a result of changes in our operations due to COVID-19. These fees cover fixed costs of these operations and enable us to continue to pay our employees.
