Requesting Permits

Departments at the River Campus and Medical Center can request Department or Business permits via our online service. In addition, 1-Day Visitor Passes can be requested for River Campus and the Medical Center. Departments pay online and payment is via a journal entry to the department account.

When the request is submitted, the Parking office receives a notification and can approve the request.  Once approved the requestor (Department) is sent an approval link to go online and purchase the permit(s).  The permit(s) will be billed to your department using the Debit FAO provided during the permit request process.

1-Day Visitor Passes for River Campus and the Medical Center work the same way. Once the day pass is purchased you’ll have the PDF, which can be e-delivered directly to your visitor. The guest can then print the pass for their dashboard and go directly to their parking spot, without stopping at an information booth.

  • Permits cannot be reused or duplicated.
  • Each vehicle must have its own 1-day visitor permit for their dashboard
  • These permits can only be used for non-University guests; department/business permits are used for University employees
  • One-day visitor passes are not intended for scheduled events (more than 5 guests is considered an event). Please contact the Special Events Coordinator for any passes needed for an event

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What happens if a customer can’t print out the day pass I emailed them?
A: For a Non-Gated lot: The department will either have to mail out a hard copy of the permit to their visitor or once the visitor is onsite, have them place the printed pass on the dashboard of their vehicle. For a Gated Lot: If the guest has a smartphone he/she can open up the email for the cashier to scan it, or the customer can scan the QR code themselves using the scanner. – No smartphone – the department will need to print out the pass and give it to their visitor for use on exiting the lot.

Q: How will my department be charged?
A: Departments will be charged for all permits purchased in a month through an automatic journal entry to their department account.
