Parking & Transportation Services
***Summer 2019 parking permits go on sale at 8am on Tuesday, May 21, 2019***
***NOTE: There is no longer a requirement to pick up the physical permit from the Parking Office after purchase. Your license plate is now your permit!!!
Please click HERE to register for a Summer 2019 permit (on May 21 or after) only AFTER reading the below description of all types of permits offered.
Entering license plate number(s) is 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 converted to License Plate Recognition (LPR) during the Spring 2018 semester 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 permit holder to log into the parking portal and keep their vehicle information current and valid.
For all UCCS parking lots requiring a parking permit, the permit MUST be purchased prior to the first day of each semester. There is NO "grace period." Tickets WILL be written for parking violations the first day of the semester. Please read the following information regarding parking options. Owning a permit, without registering the license plate, will result in a ticket. Most permits we sell are valid for the summer semester only and will expire August 2, 2019.

Cars violating parking regulations will be subject to ticket and/or immobilization. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Purchasing a permit entitles you to park in certain parking lots on campus. YOU ARE NOT PURCHASING A RESERVED PARKING SPACE. Direct all inquiries concerning parking to Parking Services at 719-255-3528.
Free parking options are available. See non-permit restricted parking areas below.

Non-permit restricted parking areas
Commuter Students who do not purchase a parking permit may park in any 500 series lots located at and near the Ent Center for the Arts complex, 5225 North Nevada Avenue. However, registration for the free 500 series permit is now required. The student Safety and Transportation fee provides students with free shuttle service to and from Lot 580 to the main campus.
Student Safety and Transportation Fee
All students are automatically charged a Safety and Transportation fee. This fee is not a parking fee and is not used for parking facilities. This fee is used to provide enhanced police services and shuttle services from far parking lots to the campus. The fee for the Summer 2019 semester is $47.00.
University Hall (Lot 100) and Lot 580 near the ENT Center for the Arts are serviced by a shuttle system to get students to the main campus. Campus shuttles run fall, spring, and summer semesters only from 6:40 a.m. to 10:35 p.m. Monday-Friday. If you plan to ride the campus shuttle, please see the time schedule of departures under the TRANSPORTATION tab. Due to increased demand on this system, students parking in lots far away from campus and riding the shuttle to the main campus should anticipate arriving 30 minutes prior to the start of their first class.

Summer 2019 permits may be returned for a full refund anytime on or before Monday, June 17, 2019 at 5pm.
The Safety and Transportation fee is refunded only if Admissions and Records refund all other fees. The refund of this fee is done in accordance with the calendar on page 4 of the Schedule of Courses and follows the refund schedule for all tuition and fees.
*Safety and Transportation Fee is automatically billed to all students, regardless of credit hour load.
