Parking for Classes

Parking is available in University Village, the parking structure located at 1200 University Ave., and in the adjacent surface parking lots. Permits are required, and parking is enforced, 8 am - 10 pm, seven days per week.

Permit Options

You have several options to choose from, based on the frequency and length of time you will be on campus. Each permit type has different parking options, and costs vary. You can buy by the hour, day, week, or month based on your needs.

Transportation Services is now utilizing License Plate Recognition (LPR) to verify parking privileges. Physical hang tag permits will be phased out, and you will be issued a virtual parking permit through the parking system that will be valid on any vehicle you designate. Learn more about License Plate Recognition.

How to Purchase a Permit

  • Daily, Multi-Day, Monthly, and Quarterly permits can be purchased through UCR Transportation Services.
  • Daily permits for infrequent visits to campus can be purchased via the ParkMobile app.
  • Daily Permits for University Village can be purchased in the University Village parking lot at the parking pay station.

Note: The parking structure located at 1200 University Ave. is considered a Gold Lot.
