Who is eligible
UCSB full-time and part-time career or limited appointment staff are eligible to obtain a staff B ePermit. Employees requesting “B” ePermits will have their status verified via the UC Path.
Where to park
The B ePermit allows you to park in the lots and structures designated for staff.
The ePermit is valid in student lots, and for parking in time-restricted parking spaces for the time designated.
The ePermit 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" ePermit holder spaces.
The ePermit is NOT valid in "Coastal Access" spaces nor the "GOLD" on weekdays, Monday–Friday 7:30AM–5:00PM.
The ePermit is NOT valid in Lot 2 or in the Residential Community Living parking facilities operated by Housing & Residential Services.
