Campus Residents

Students living in residence halls or other student/family housing are not eligible to purchase longer term campus day use permits. Vehicles registered to campus housing residents (or the resident's family name/address) may not display longer term day use campus permits and are subject to citation and additional sanctions. Permit sharing or misuse may result in citation issuance, revocation or suspension of future permit privileges, refund forfeiture, and/or a referral to the Student Judicial Affairs office.

Campus Housing Residents (Solano Park, Russell Park, LaRue Park, The Colleges at LaRue, Primero Grove, 8th & Wake, West Village):

Residents of these housing facilities are not eligible for longer-term campus day use permits. Residents may purchase a campus Night (N) permit, which is valid on campus 5pm-10pm.  

Permits for these housing areas are issued by the respective housing office and must be fully displayed in your vehicle, as indicated on the permit in a position clearly visible to Parking Enforcement officers (Transportation Services does not provide services to the 8th & Wake property). Housing permits are not valid in campus parking areas. Parking regulations in these housing areas are enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including quarter breaks and the summer. Please contact your respective housing office to determine their policies in regard to visitor parking (individuals visiting on site).

Residence Hall Residents (Segundo, Tercero & Cuarto):

Students living in the residence halls may not bring a vehicle to campus and are expected to walk, bike or utilize public transportation.  Residence hall residents are not eligible to purchase or display longer-term campus parking permits.  Visitor permits or EasyPark units may be purchased to accommodate occasional parking needs.  There are many public transportation options and travel planning resources available to assist with your transportation needs.  To view a detailed list, please visit the Student Housing website at http://housing.ucdavis.edu/resources/travel.asp.

Residents who feel they have extenuating circumstances that may warrant an exception to the Student Housing Parking Policy may submit a request for an exception to TAPS.  Appeals for reasons such as the distance one lives from home, work/class obligations, vehicle ownership, social activities, etc. will not be considered.  Students who are granted an exception shall be required to park in a specific, remote parking area and will not have full campus parking privileges.  An "RES" permit may be purchased for the term authorized and will provide parking in non-restricted spaces on Garrod Drive West (RL permit area) or the Hopkins District Parking Lot.   After 5pm, “RES” permits are honored on the main campus in unrestricted permit spaces. 

A request form must be completed and submitted to TAPS along with a statement that details the need to have a vehicle on campus, supporting documentation to substantiate the written statement, and a copy of the vehicle registration.  All forms, statements and documentation must be complete and are subject to audit and verification.  TAPS will review and respond to requests within 2 weeks from the date of receipt.  Exceptions will be granted only if there is a legitimate, documented need that other/public transportation options cannot accommodate.  Residents will be required to provide TAPS with proof of vehicle registration at the time of permit purchase, and the vehicle license plate number will be recorded on the permit. Students are required to contact TAPS if their circumstances change for reevaluation of the exception. Students who misuse permits or falsify information may have current/future permit privileges revoked, waive any right to a refund, and/or be subject to other sanctions including referral to Student Judicial Affairs.
