Staff “B” Permits – Retirees

Who is eligible

Retired staff who are not on pay status are eligible to obtain a retiree B permit. The Emeriti/Retirees Center provides TPS with a list of eligible retirees. Please enjoy the privilege accorded to you by your complimentary parking permit.

Should you return to payroll status — however long or short the duration — you will be required to pay for parking. Your retiree B permit will no longer be valid, and must be returned to TPS.

The retiree B permit is issued exclusively to qualified applicants. It may NOT be transferred to any other person for temporary or long-term use.

Where to park

Retired Staff “B” Permit

A retiree B permit accords the same parking privileges as a staff B permit; you are allowed to park in the lots and structures designated for staff.

The permit is valid in student lots, and for parking in time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated.

The permit is not valid in spaces marked for faculty only, or where other restrictions apply — for example: "R" Reserved spaces, Restricted spaces, Service Spaces, VENDOR spaces, Metered spaces (without paying the meter), or "H23" permit holder spaces. The permit is also NOT valid in Lot 15, "Coastal Access" spaces, nor "GOLD" spaces on weekdays, Monday–Friday 7:30AM–5:00PM. The permit is NOT valid in Lot 2 or in the off-campus parking facilities operated by Housing & Residential Services.

How to apply

Please visit the Parking Services office. You will be asked to present your Emeriti/Retirees membership card.

When to renew

Before or after your permit expires, please visit the Parking Services office.
