Business Permit Parking

Business permits are authorized for those vendors who have been contracted by the University to perform specialized services on campus. The business permit is only available for monthly purchases and is not available to our food retail vendors. 

Vendors who meet this criteria may contact Parking & Transportation Services for more information.

Business permits are valid in service/vendor areas up to one hour and then in faculty, staff and student spaces the remainder of the time on campus during the hours of 8:00a.m. to 4:30p.m. Monday - Friday.  All other hours this permits is valid in service/vendor spaces for unlimited periods. Should the service being performed on campus during business hours require visiting different buildings on campus this permit will allow you to park at different service/vendor locations for up to one hour each.


Ensure the vehicle is parked properly within the limit lines, with the permit clearly displayed on the dashboard if you do not have a virtual permit assigned to you.  Vehicles not parked properly or in unauthorized areas are subject to violation. Parking violations vary from $35-$450.
