Who is eligible
The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor determines eligibility for academic Reserved permits. The Office of the Vice Chancellor of Administrative Services determines eligibility for staff Reserved permits.
Where to park
Reserved permit holders are assigned a particular reserved space on campus. Vehicles displaying a valid Reserved permit may be parked in the assigned space or in any of the lots or structures on campus. The permit is valid in time-restricted spaces for the time designated.
The permit is not valid in lots, areas, and spaces marked “At All Times” or where other restrictions apply — for example, reserved or metered spaces, or lots/spaces marked for vendors or “H” permit holders. The permit is not valid in Coastal Access spaces on weekdays, Monday–Friday 7:30AM–5:00PM. The permit is not valid in the off-campus parking facilities operated by Housing & Residential Services.
Price and payment options
The cost of an annual permit is $1,125. A permit purchased after the start of the permit year is prorated and the appropriate fee charged for the remainder of the year. If you purchase an annual permit in November, for example, the cost to you is $750. In January, you pay $562.50, and in March $375.
TPS accepts payment by cash, debit/credit card, or a check made payable to UC Regents.
Permit returns and refunds
Annual permits that are not being used must be returned to Parking Services to qualify for a refund. See here for more information about our permit return policy.
