Vendors who need to park on campus may choose to use visitor parking facilities or purchase a special permit. These permits are not available to purchase online.

Vendors are responsible to comply with university parking policies.

Vendor Permits

Vendor permits are issued to representatives of commercial businesses who visit campus to conduct routine business with the university. Vendor permits are transferable between registered vehicles.

Vendors who choose not to purchase an annual permit must use metered parking or a pay parking facility, or purchase a daily or temporary vendor parking permit.

Vendor permits are valid for use in all EMP, EMS, CH, ST zones, parking garages, and for up to 2 hours in SV zones. Payment is required when used at a meter kiosk or mobile metered area. Vendor permits do not authorize parking along curbs or in any reserved/restricted spaces. Vendor permits are only valid for use in ADA spaces when a valid state issued permit or plate is displayed.

Vendor permits will issued in a business name, and will require the individual user’s name and plate number to be provided at the time of purchase.

New vendors must purchase their initial permit in person at the Parking Operations office. Existing vendors seeking to renew their permit may do in the office or make via email us at, to be enabled for online purchase (by credit card payment option only.)

See our Permit Rates page for pricing information. Payment options available include cash, check, or credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa), or direct billing with provided authorization from the purchasing business.
