User's Responsibility

The function of the Parking Services Office is to make parking as convenient as possible within constraints imposed by demand, available space and cost. The entire operation is self-sustaining through fees collected from users. Income derived from fees is used to cover operation expenses (e.g., paying debt on garages, and road/lot repairs).

Loading & Unloading

Parking for loading and unloading up to 30 minutes will be granted when necessary. Permission and passes must be obtained from Parking Services at 4 Edwads Center and are valid only in the designated location.

When loading dock access is needed on the Medical, West, UC Blue Ash, UC Clermont or Victory Parkway properties, a specific request for their use must be made.

Established garage rates will be charged for loading and unloading in garages on the Medical and West campuses. A valid load/unload permit must be displayed at all times while loading or unloading.

Special Parking Request Form

The Special Parking Request Form is used to request parking for an event on campus for an individual or group of people who need to park, but are not affiliated with the university and do not have valid parking permits.

Special Parking Request Form Instructions

When submitting a special parking request form, please complete the form in its entirety as applicable to your event. If there is information you would like to include but there is no defined area, please add information to the comment section and submit.

If paying by credit card, please do not enter your credit card information on this form as it is only needed when picking up your request.

Retiree/Emeriti Parking Form

Retirees and emeriti may apply for a permit allowing up to three hours of complimentary parking when visiting the University of Cincinnati. You will be permitted to park in any garage unless the "FULL" light is on display.

For emeriti, this does not replace the permit that you might have for a specific garage. This special card is for use in facilities other than your assigned permit facility.

Be sure to reapply for renewal prior to the expiration on your card.

Affiliate/Vendor/Contractor Parking Application

This form should be completed for CORPORATE, VENDORS and AFFILIATE employees only. Please submit your request(s) at least five days in advance of required date.

Guests must use paid parking garages. Individuals, departments or sponsoring groups may arrange to pay for parking by completing a Request for Special Parking Form online. This form should also be completed to alert Parking Services of large programs/events for which individuals are to pay for parking. Requests for special parking must be submitted five or more business days in advance of the date the event is desired. It is the responsibility of faculty, staff and students to make parking regulations known to their invited guests or visitors. Guests are subject to parking regulations.
