Last Update: July 21, 2021

Campus parking permits are typically managed by historical usage and turnover. Permits are lot specific and allow Parking and Transportation to manage the specific needs and demands associated with each lot / area of campus.  

The University and UIHC require some employees to work on main campus and then other various satellite offices or patient locations as needed. Where possible, Parking and Transportation may be able to honor main campus permits at satellite locations, and vice versa.  Each campus location presents unique circumstances and capacities.
