Since the pandemic has changed the work environment for many Medical Center employees, the Parking office is offering two new permit options for those who are working from home and parking onsite less often. Please see below for details and instructions.
Option 1: Expanded Half-Time Remote Permit
- For full-time employees who need to park on campus 50% of the time or less where a parking permit is required.
- The available lots for Remote parking are Lot 2 and Lot 9. Click here to see a map.
- Fee is 50% of the lot’s regular full-time rate.
- Supervisor/manager approval is required via online request form. Departments can designate an administrator to complete the online request.
- Current permit holders in Lot 1, 2, 9, 11, and Scottsville will remain in their existing lots. All other permit holders will be eligible for Remote permits in Lot 2 and Lot 9.
How to Purchase:
- Your manager or supervisor must go online and submit a request for a Remote permit on your behalf.
- Managers or supervisors can click here to go to the request form. They will receive an email confirming that the application was submitted.
- A response will be sent within 5 business days to all that are listed on the application.
- You will NOT need a decal or hanging tag. The Parking office will link your permit to your vehicle’s plate number, so no action is required.
Option 2: Daily Permit
- For employees who prefer to pay to park by the day
- Purchase using credit card (payroll deduction not an option)
- Lot 9 has designated spots for $5.00 per day
- Lot 3 has designated spots for $6.00 per day
- Offsite Lots – $6.00 per day at any of the following: Imaging Building on East River Road, Lattimore Medical Center, Bailey Road, Data Center/Science Parkway, and Sawgrass. Spaces will not be designated, so you can park in any open space.
- Important: If you currently use payroll deduction for your full-time permit, you MUST fill out a Payroll Deduction Cancellation Form online before purchasing a daily permit to avoid being double-charged for parking.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is considered a full-time parker?
Employees are not considered full-time parkers, and therefore eligible for either of these new parking options, if they park 2 days or less in a lot where a permit is required. Employees who park 3 days or more in a lot where a permit is required are considered full-time parkers and are not eligible for either of these permit options.
Will I need a tag or sticker for the daily permit?
No, if you purchase a daily permit, you have the option of printing a PDF or opening it on your smartphone and scanning it when you enter the lot. Tip: The larger and brighter it appears on your phone screen, the better it will work on the scanner.
How soon before coming to work can I purchase a daily permit?
You can purchase it the same day you come to work, using your smartphone or computer. Please buy your permit before leaving for work so it’s ready to scan when you arrive to help minimize delays at the lot entrances.
If I opt out of my full-time permit to use a Remote or Daily permit, can I get access to my current lot when I return in person full-time?
Yes. If you opt to use a daily or remote permit, your existing full-time space will be held until March 1, 2021. Starting in February, Parking will begin to offer employees the option to move to closer-in lots.
How will Parking decide who moves to closer-in lots?
Parking will use the waitlists to determine which staff to move to closer-in lots.
What if I need to return to work on campus after March 1?
You will be placed in a lot with available parking. You can also add yourself to a wait list (by logging into My Parking Online) for your desired lot if it’s full when you return.
Will Parking keep track of how long people have been parking in closer lots?
Parking is trying to strike a fair balance for employees who are working from home and those who come into work full-time. By offering a March 1 deadline for employees working from home, we can move employees who come to the Medical Center more frequently to closer-in lots.
Can employees still use Occasional Parking Permits?
The Occasional Permit will be replaced by the new Daily Permit. However, employees who already have occasional permits may continue to use them until June 30, 2021.
