At times, large campus events will affect parking availability at certain lots on campus. Our guide and Parking Impact Calendar can help determine parking impacts on campus from large events.

Special Event Parking

Weeknight, Weekday and Weekend Events

Transportation Services offers a comprehensive special event parking program that manages vehicular access, provides parking convenience, and maintains a positive presence throughout major special events on the Davis campus, to better serve attendees at events that impact the campus parking program. Campus departments may request event permits, attendants and/or reserved spaces through the online system. Fees will be charged for special event services as outlined below. Valid UC Davis parking permits will be honored at events, without additional payment required.

Services Offered:
  • Reserved Parking Spaces | Choose this option if you would like to reserve parking spaces for your guests. This includes weekday and weekend events. Please note that additional costs may be required for larger setups.
    • $11/per space for the number of spaces reserved
    • $77/setup cost (which includes signs and setup)
  • Conference Permits | Conference permits are an option for large conferences/meetings on campus. These permits are designed to provide parking for up to ten sequential days. For those instances when an event's duration may be longer than ten days, please contact the Special Events Coordinator by email, or by phone: 530-752-7657.
    • $10/per permit
    • $34 permit preparation fee per order
    • Any unused permits can be returned, and will only be charged a printing fee of $0.10 per permit
  • Parking Attendants | Choose this option if you would like parking attendants to staff the parking lot(s) at your event. This is a good option for departments who want the added customer service of a parking attendant to sell permits, so that guests do not have to use the permit dispensing machines. You may use this option in conjunction with conference permits when the department picks up the permit cost for guests, or elect to have the attendant(s) sell permits to guests as they arrive.
    • The department will be charged $13/per hour per attendant (plus one additional hour per attendant for preparation and completion)
    • $42.00 processing fee
