As a UTemp, you are eligible to purchase a UT “A” parking permit.Of course, this doesn’t mean that you’re guaranteed parking. But it does allow you to park on any surface lot on campus marked “A” OR parking marked as available to any valid university permit. A map is available online showing those areas where you’re allowed to park with an “A” permit.

How Can I Get The Parking Permit?

A UTemp that has an active/current assignment can purchase an “A” permit.

You can obtain one from any of the garages listed below (garages are open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. M-F, except the Conference Center, which is open 24 hours a day):

Go to the cashier’s window and identify yourself as a UTemp and that you wish to purchase a temporary parking permit. They accept cash, personal checks, and major credit cards. “A” permits are sold monthly and cost $16.00/month.

Occasional Parking  Program

The Occasional Parking Program is a low-cost parking alternative for staff and faculty who need occasional access to the university garages. This program offers the opportunity for substantial discounts from the regular daily rate. Participants will set up an Occasional Parking Program account that will allow them to add funds in advance to scan a QR code in and out of university garages. More on this at the PTS website:

What Do I Do When My Permit Is Set To Expire?

You are responsible for obtaining a new parking permit prior to its expiration. Parking permits can be purchased and renewed at any of the garages listed above. However, you must have a current or future assignment to obtain a parking permit.


The University Police Department will issue parking tickets for expired permits and/or if you are not parked in the correct parking lot (must be an “A” parking lot). It is up to YOU to stay up on the expiration date.
