What is Resident Reserved parking?
Resident Reserved parking is reserved parking spaces that are located near residence halls on campus.

Transit and Parking Services offers selected students the ability to purchase Resident Reserved spaces in July and August prior to the beginning of classes each fall.

How do I get a Resident Reserved parking permit?
You may request a Resident Reserved parking permit during the housing contracting process until the priority deadline in late June.

University Housing will send a list of students requesting the pass to Transit and Parking after that deadline.

You will be notified by your university email account if you are offered a Resident Reserved parking permit.

It is important that you regularly check your university email for potential Resident Reserved parking permit offers. Transit and Parking will offer a limited window for students to accept the offer for Resident Reserved parking.

The demand for residential parking is high. Signing up for the Resident Reserved parking permit waiting list does not guarantee you will be offered the opportunity to buy a permit.

How is the waiting list determined?
Resident Reserved permits are offered first to returning students and then, based on remaining availability, to new students.

For incoming freshmen, your date of contract and pre-payment to University Housing are two of the most important factors to determine where you are placed on the waitlist.


What is the best way to know if I will get a Resident Reserved parking pass offer?
Students may log into the housing contracting portal and click on the contract status page to see their number on the Resident Reserved parking waitlist beginning in early July.

Transit and Parking will send weekly updates to University Housing of the last number they were able to offer on the waitlist.

You can compare your waitlist number to the number of available spots in each zone (see map for buildings and zones) to get a sense of your potential availability for Resident Reserved parking.

What if I get a Garage Permit offer before a Resident Reserved parking offer?
Transit and Parking may offer a garage parking pass before you are offered a Resident Reserved parking pass.

You are encouraged to compare your Resident Reserved waitlist number against the last available waitlist number offered by Transit and Parking.

Knowing where you sit on the waitlist is intended to help you decide if you should take the offer for a garage parking pass or wait to receive an offer for a Resident Reserved parking permit.
