How do I replace a lost or stolen parking permit?
To guard against theft, carefully follow the instructions on the tab of the permit when affixing the decal to your vehicle. Remember to lock your car doors and windows, as permits are a source of theft. If someone steals your permit, contact Parking & Transportation Services immediately at 619-594-6671 to report the crime. Stolen parking permits will be replaced free-of-charge, provided you have filed a police report with University Police, have demonstrated that your permit was properly displayed, and can show physical evidence that it was in fact stolen.
If you lose your permit, you will be required to purchase a new permit.
