Undergraduate Night & Weekend Permit
Who is eligible
Undergraduate students are eligible to buy an annual Night & Weekend parking permit,
the cost of which is covered in part by a $3.33 quarterly lock-in fee.
An alternative for undergraduates is to buy
one-time permits at $4.00 each or 15-day Night & Weekend permits at $8.00 each.
The permits are sold from permit
dispensers at our regular price since purchases are not covered by a lock-in fee.
When & where to park
An annual Night & Weekend permit allows you to park on campus Monday through Friday from 5:00PM until 7:30AM the next
morning, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
A machine-dispensed Night & Weekend permit has the same privileges and hours as the annual Night & Weekend permit,
except it is not on sale, nor is it valid for parking, on Friday and Saturday nights from midnight to 5AM the next morning.
During permitted hours, you may park in
Faculty & Staff Parking
and Visitor & Student Parking.
Coastal Access and vendor spaces are valid for parking, as are
time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated.
The Night & Weekend permit does not allow you to park at any time in:
- lots, areas, or spaces marked “At All Times” or marked for “RS” permit holders
- where other restrictions apply — for example, reserved, metered or
- parking facilities operated by Housing & Residential Services❖
How to apply

.Upon submitting your application, you will then:

indicates that we do not have your correct email address.

your order was approved, and how to go back online to complete the order.

When to renew
The annual permit expires on June 30. Please note that renewal is not automatic. To maintain parking
privileges, log into your online account and apply for a new permit before June 30.
Price and payment options

plus $5.95 processing, shipping & handling fee.
TPS accepts payment by cash, debit/credit card, or a check made payable to UC Regents.
A permit purchased after the start of a fiscal year is prorated by quarter and the appropriate

for example, the cost to you is $52.50 for three quarters. After January 1, you
pay $35.00 for two quarters, and after April 1, $17.50 for one quarter.
