Parking Access

General Parking Access Information

About Campus Parking Access

All parking regulations are enforced year-round, including during quarter breaks and summer. A UC Davis parking access validation (permit) is required to park on campus, either through the ParkMobile app or the purchase of an LRPP monthly permit (employees only). Failure to pay for parking may result in a citation.

Employee Parking Options

  • Daily Rates paid for through the ParkMobile app. Be sure you are registered with your UC Davis email address in order to access affiliate rates. If you are not seeing the affiliate rates and believe you should please contact our office at parking@ucdavis.edu or 530-752-8277. It is best you contact our office to troubleshoot prior to checking out. Refunds or promo codes will not be issued for overpaid parking in excess of two days or in cases when there is user error in setting up the ParkMobile account.  
  • The Level Rate Parking Program (LRPP) is an alternative for those who drive to campus every day and do not wish to pay daily. Available to employees with a staff title code. 
  • Printed parking permits may be purchased at the COSMOS permit dispensers. Affiliates who choose to purchase a permit through a permit dispenser will be required to pay the visitor, non-affiliate rates.
