Spring 2019 Resident Student Parking Information

General Information

***Fall 2018/Spring 2019 Resident parking permits become available on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

Click HERE to Reserve your Fall 2018/Spring 2019 Resident parking permit (only after you have read the Resident parking information listed below).

***NEW this year:  Permit registration is now required for the free (500 series) parking lots.  Parking in 500 series lots is still free to students, but permit registration is now required effective this year (Fall 2018). For those students purchasing a permit for the main campus or border lots, you won't need to register for a 500 series lot... your purchased permit is good in your respective permitted lot(s) as well as the 500 series lots. 

Entering license plate number(s) is now a REQUIREMENT when registering for a permit.  You may enter as many as five different license plates under one permit, but only ONE of these vehicles may be parked on campus at the same time. We have converted to License Plate Recognition (LPR) so license plate information is now required.  Unregistered vehicles may result in a citation even though a valid permit was purchased.  It is the responsibility of each resident to log into the parking portal and keep their vehicle information current and valid.  There is no longer a requirement to pick up a physical permit from the Parking Office after purchase.  Your license plate is now your permit.

For the Resident parking area and all other permit restricted areas on campus, you must register for your permit(s) through the parking portal by the first day of classes, Tuesday, January 22, 2019.  There is NO "grace period." Tickets WILL be written for violations starting the first day of the semester. Resident permits are valid for FALL 2018/SPRING 2019 semester only. Residents who bring a car to campus will need to log into the parking portal and reserve their permit.  Residents are allowed to register up to five vehicles on the same virtual permit.  However, only one vehicle is allowed on campus at a time per permit issued. PLEASE NOTE: Resident permits are included in housing fees and no additional payment is necessary at time of issuance. Residents who possess a valid state-issued handicapped permit or license plate registered in their name may park in ANY handicapped space on the UCCS campus as long as the handicapped plate/permit is displayed and the vehicle and license plate is registered in the Parking Portal.

Cars violating parking regulations will be subject to ticket and/or tow. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING A RESERVED PARKING SPACE. Students should direct all inquiries concerning parking to Parking Services at 719-255-3528.

Student Safety and Transportation Fee & Transportation Services

All students are automatically charged a Safety and Transportation fee. This fee is not a parking fee and is not used for parking-related improvements. This fee is used to provide enhanced police services and shuttle services for the UCCS community. The Safety and Transportation fee is billed directly to the student's account. For detailed information on service to and from various housing areas as well as other on-campus locations, see our on-line shuttle schedule.
