About Parking Permits

All parking regulations are enforced during quarter breaks and summer. A valid UC Davis permit is required to park on campus, either as a displayed monthly permit or a permit paid for through the ParkMobile app. You may find more information about ParkMobile by clicking here.

Monthly Permits For Employees - Available through June 30, 2021

A, C and N permits are available to employees for purchase with Visa or MasterCard through the Parking Portal. Other permit types may be requested by sending an email to parking@ucdavis.edu. Employees with an appointment of 50% or more in a non-student title code may also be eligible for enrollment in pre-tax payroll deductions.

Daily Permits For Students and Employees - Beginning January 1, 2021

Daily permits are available for purchase through the ParkMobile app for students and employees.* Employees may also opt to purchase a monthly permit instead, available through June 30, 2021. 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.
