Faculty & Staff

In order to park in campus parking facilities, all UC employees must purchase a parking permit, regardless of work shift or pay the hourly rate in a visitor facility. Please make sure to review the permit guidelines  and instructions for purchasing a permit prior to purchasing a parking permit.  

If you arrive on campus and the sign for your permitted garage says FULL, space is still available for permit holders. The FULL sign is directed towards visitors to campus.

When you need to provide parking for visitors, convenient options are available. If you're planning an event, review instructions for Event & Meeting Planners.


Available Facilities

Faculty and Staff may select a parking facility from which to purchase a permit. Parking facilities currently available for  permit purchase can be found on the following pages by location.  

Waitlisted Facilities

University of Cincinnati staff , faculty and designated affiliates are eligible for placement on one waiting list. When a waiting list exists, a faculty or staff member must go to the Parking Services portal and place his/her name on the list. Designated affiliates will work with parking staff to add their name to a list, when appropriate. When a space becomes available in the parking facility, the first individual on that list will be notified either by phone or in writing. Individuals who do not respond within the set period of time will be removed from the list. It is the responsibility of the individual to update contact information on file. The university reserves the right to move individuals outside of the waitlist policy when it is in the best interest of the university. Approval for exceptions will be made by the vice president responsible for parking services.

Monthly Permits

Individuals not eligible for payroll deductions (e.g., fellows, visiting faculty, contractors, adjunct faculty below 50% FTE, etc.) may purchase a monthly permit. Payroll eligible employees may choose to purchase a monthly permit in lieu of the automatically renewing payroll deduction permit.  University employees may purchase the monthly permit online.

For permit holders using monthly payroll deduction, parking must be terminated prior to the last day of the month to stop future payroll deductions.  Any pro-rated refund will be issued in the month following cancellation.

Refunds for cancelled parking are made on a prorated basis. Hangtags must be returned to the Parking Services office to receive a refund. Retroactive refunds are not offered for failure to terminate parking in a timely manner. No refunds are issued for permits revoked due to misuse.
