About Parking Permits

Parking Compliance

There is a fee to park in UC Davis parking areas. All parking regulations are enforced during quarter breaks and summer. No parking enforcement on University Holidays. A valid UC Davis parking access validation is required to park on campus in one of the following ways:

  • Daily Rate: Available to all UC Davis affiliates and visitors via ParkMobile. UC Davis affiliates should register with ParkMobile using their UCD email address to access affiliate rates.
  • LRPP Monthly Parking Access: For employees only, choose your parking zone and pay a flat rate for the month. Learn more about LRPP options.

 Please see parking rates and descriptions below

  • A Zone Access - Available via ParkMobile to commuting faculty and career staff who are employed with a non-student title code (affiliate rates in Daily A are not available to those who have a monthly LRPP). Valid in non-restricted (ADA areas, red zones, etc.) A Zone spaces. If you pay to park in one A zone, you are able to move to another non-restricted A, C or L zone space without paying a second time. Students may purchase A Zone Access after 5 pm. C and L zone access permits are eligible to park in A zones after 5 p.m. 

    A+ Zone AccessThe A+ parking reservations are accessed through the ParkMobile app, or online, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Departments may also use this feature for guests by setting up a ParkMobile departmental account (using a P-Card and departmental email address). This is a great option for those who want to secure a parking stall and know it will be available when they arrive up until noon on the reservation day.

    C Zone Access - Available via ParkMobile to commuting faculty, staff, and students (affiliate rates in Daily C are not available to those who have a monthly LRPP). Valid in non-restricted “C” zone spaces. If you purchase in one C zone you are able to move to another non-restricted C or L zone space without paying a second time. C zone permit holders may park in an A area after 5 p.m. 

    C+ Zone Access - C+ Zone parking are flexible parking stalls within A Zones, available daily for UC Davis employees and students. The intention of C+ Zone parking is to make better use of our most in-demand (and sometimes underutilized) parking areas by offering these spaces to students looking for an "up-front" parking option. C+ Zone access is available via ParkMobile and is the same daily rate as that of A Zone parking. C+ zones are located at the Quad District Parking Structure level 2, Pavilion District Parking Structure level 2, Lot 5A, Lot 14 and Lot 41.
