  • Permits are not transferable.
  • Pay & Display receipts must be displayed face-up on the driver's side of dashboard and the vehicle plate information on the ticket must match the vehicle in which it is displayed in order to be valid.
  • Hang Tags should be displayed on the rear view mirror when parking in ungated lots such as Elborn, Upper Heating, Westminster and Siebens lots. Enforcement staff must be able to clearly see the permit number.
  • Ensure your Parking Account is up to date and that your vehicle plates are linked to your permit. Instructions for managing vehicles on your account are located here: MANAGE PLATES TIED TO YOUR PERMIT.

  • Do not park in or block fire routes, bus stops, buildings or walkway entrances. Do not drive in restricted areas.
  • If all spaces are full in the lot, please move to the next available lot within your authorized zone.
