Where to Eligible

Emeriti faculty who are not on pay status are eligible to obtain an emeriti A ePermit. The Emeriti/Retirees Center provides the TPS office with a list of eligible emeriti. 

Any Emeritus professors who return to payroll status — however long or short the duration — will be required to pay for parking. The emeriti A ePermit will no longer be valid. 

The emeriti A ePermit is issued exclusively to qualified applicants. It may NOT be transferred to any other person for temporary or long-term use.

Where to Park

An emeriti A ePermit accords the same parking privileges as a faculty A ePermit; you are allowed to park in the lots and structures designated for faculty, including spaces within the lots/structures marked “Faculty At All Times”.

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

The ePermit is NOT valid where restrictions apply — for example, "R" Reserved spaces, Restricted spaces, Service spaces, VENDOR spaces, metered spaces (without paying the meter), or "H23" spaces. The ePermit is NOT valid in Coastal Access spaces or "GOLD" spaces on weekdays, Monday–Friday 7:30am–5:00pm.
The ePermit 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 ePermit expires, please visit the Parking Services office.


  • Parking ePermits are granted for the purpose of transportation to and from campus. Garaging (storing) your vehicle on campus is prohibited unless you are an "H" or "IVA" ePermit holder with an active lease agreement in the assigned parking lot.
  • Parking ePermits are issued solely by Parking Services and are assigned after verification of eligibility. 
  • ePermits are not transferable between friends or family members.
  • ePermits are issued when the applicant has paid the required fee, resolved all delinquent parking citations and provided proof of eligibility.
  • Failure to provide and maintain accurate information on the parking ePermit application may result in citation, fine, the loss of parking privileges and referral to the Campus Police or the Dean of Students for disciplinary action.
  • You will not receive a physical permit, because your license plate acts as your permit number. You may be subject to citation if you neglect to associate your license plate on your eParking account at http://tps.ucsb.edu/parking-permits/ePermits.
