Permits are collected by the sponsoring department at Transportation and Parking Services inside Public Safety, Building 36. The permits will be charged to the chartfield string provided on the request form. No refunds will be granted for permits collected.

Sponsored Guest parking permits will be honored in designated sponsored guest, commuter or staff spaces.
