Parking Availability

Requesting a Disability Parking Accommodation

Parking for individuals with disabilities or those who require special accommodations is available in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended (ADA AA) and other relevant laws. Learn more about requesting a parking related accommodation through the Disability Parking and Accessibility page.

Special Events

Parking reserves the right to utilize any parking area during special events.  An alternate parking site will be provided for your usage.

Self Service Online

Through My Parking Online you can manage your account, including annual permit renewals, appeal or pay citations, and request a transfer to another lot through the Waitlist feature.


Requests to transfer to another lot can be made at My Parking Online and are processed on a first requested/first transferred basis as space allows. Submit your request and you’ll be placed on a waiting list for the lot you desire. Waitlists are reviewed regularly and transfers are processed as space allows.

Alternate Vehicles

Is your car in the repair shop? Need to bring a rental or spare car to work? Let us know by completing our easy online alternate vehicle form. The vehicle will be placed on the exemption list to ensure that you will not receive a ticket for that day.

If you will be driving the alternate vehicle for more than 3 days, you MUST obtain a free temporary permit from the Parking Office. Notes left on vehicles are not accepted and unregistered vehicles will be ticketed.

Those driving a second or third vehicle on a regular basis may obtain an alternate vehicle parking permit at a fee of $35.00 per vehicle. Only 1 vehicle may park on University property at a time.

If you have questions or concerns contact the Parking Management Center at 585.275.4524

Occasional Parking

If you utilize alternative means of transportation to and from the University—walking, bicycling, public transportation or carpooling—you qualify for the Occasional Parking Program through UR Connections.


Help the University in our commitment to embrace sustainability while reducing your impact on the environment. Join a carpool! A qualifying carpool is two people or more sharing a ride and reaping the benefits of minimizing traffic congestion, being green, and saving on the cost of parking permits.

Carpooling is one of the many features of the UR Connections program to encourage alternative transportation.  You can find out more about other UR Connections activities here.

Vehicle Assistance Program (V.A.P.)

Business Permit

Departments at the River Campus and Medical Center can request Department or Business Space permits via our online service. Requesting Department or Business Space permits online eliminates filling out 312 blue requisitions. Departments pay online and payment is via a journal entry to the department account. Select departments and organizations within the University with staff who regularly travel across our locations may qualify for a Business Permit.  Request Departmental or Business Permits here.

At the Medical Center a Business Permit is valid in Lot 3 (South Visitor), Lot 8 (MRB), and Lot 33 (College Town Garage – requires an AVI) and allows a vehicle to park for up to three (3) hours per day. These permits are also valid for any spaces labeled “Business” on River Campus or the Medical Center campus.
