Visitor Parking Information 

Welcome to UC Davis!

Here at Transportation Services, we are passionate about helping meet the mobility needs of all who visit our beautiful campus, be it by a sustainable commute option or car.

Paid permits are required to park on campus Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Permits are only required on the weekends and University holidays during special events where parking areas with permit requirements will be posted in advance.
