Parking Information

 All vehicles parked on campus require a parking permit.  Yellow one semester, yellow three semester, purple three semester, and employee permits are available online or in our office.  If you require a permit other than the ones listed above please contact our office by email, phone, or in person.

At the beginning of each semester we anticipate significant parking and traffic congestion for the first few weeks of the semester.  Here are some suggestions that may help to lessen the impact of parking issues early in the semester. 

  1. If driving, allow extra time to arrive on campus and to find a parking spot.  It is much easier to beat the traffic and find parking space if you arrive early.
  2. If possible, take the bus or ride your bike.  Students and employees are encouraged to find alternative transportation to campus during the first two weeks.  Check the UTA website at to find a bus route that will get you to campus with less traffic/parking hassle.
  3. During the first weeks of the semester the parking garage is a cost effective alternative at $1 per hour.
Again, we all need to work together to keep traffic and parking congestion to a minimum during the first couple of weeks of school.  Do not hesitate to contact Barbara Young at 801-863-8016, if you have any questions.

Our permits are digital and assigned to your license plate, your best option is to buy online.  Students using cash, checks, or obtaining disabled permits may visit the parking office to get their permit issued to their vehicle.  Students using a sponsored account (Department of Veterans Affairs or Utah State Office of Rehabilitation) may visit the parking office to get their permit issued to their vehicle.

Keep Up To Speed This Semester With New Information About UVU Parking

Web Based Parking Account Management

To better serve our customers Parking Services implement a new Parking Portal.  You can now manage your vehicles, permits, pay citations, appeal citations, and view your historical documents online.  As always we are happy to review and update you account over the phone or in person at Parking Services Monday through Friday 7 am - 5 pm.

While adding a vehicle to your account you might receive a message if the vehicle already exists in our parking system.  This will require you to contact Parking Services so that we may ensure any outstanding citations aren't automatically added to your account.  Your patience and understanding is appreciated during this transition period.

We use a permit-less system which uses your license plate as your permit identification. Each student may register two vehicles to their permit, but only one of those vehicles is allowed on campus at a given time. Vehicles without license plate numbers will need to come to the parking office to obtain a permit. To avoid citations and waiting in lines, come to parking services, or order online, before the semester starts so that your parking needs are already handled before classes start.

Parking Services offers various services to the UVU community in addition to issuing permits and enforcing parking regulations, please visit our Additional Services page for more information
