About Parking Permits

All parking regulations are enforced during quarter breaks and summer. A valid UC Davis parking access validation is required to park on campus, either as a permit paid for through the ParkMobile app or a monthly Level Rate Parking Program (for employees only). 

  • Monthly Parking Access For Employees - Available July 1, 2021
  • A, C and L parking access is offered to employees through the LRPP.  Employees with an appointment of 50% or more in a non-student title code may also be eligible for enrollment in payroll deductions (available Fall 2021).
  • Daily Permits For Students and Employees 
  • Daily permits are available for purchase through the ParkMobile app for students and employees.

    Daily permits are also available for purchase through a pay-on-foot permit dispenser in campus lots. Learn more about paying for Daily Rates for parking by clicking here.


    Employees may also opt in to the Level Rate Parking Program (LRPP), a monthly parking access. Please note, if you choose to purchase an LRPP monthly parking permit, you will not be eligible for the affiliate daily rates, and must pay the Visitor rate.
