Special Parking Requests

With an institution as unique as the University of Cincinnati, we understand that each department and student organization will have parking needs based on the operation of the group. Here are some helpful ways to cover parking requests for guests and outside vendors.

Please note: If your special parking request is related to bus parking, please contact Public Safety.

Validation Ordering

There are three different types of validations issued by UC Parking Services, depending on the location for which the validations are needed:  

  • Uptown West and East Campus require the standard “number 2” voucher.
  • 1819 Innovation Hub, Reading Campus, and Victory Parkway require a coupon code to be entered on the nearby parking kiosk.
  • Digital Futures Garage requires a validation sticker issued by a third-party operator.

Use this form to order for any UC parking location. Be sure to indicate which campus parking validations are required.

University departments and organizations* are required to use departmental account strings to pay for validations. Outside entities and university organizations not using university funds are encouraged to be invoiced for their validation usage as it offers a better mechanism for tracking usage and costs. 

Visitor parking will be charged to the designated account as vouchers are used according to the daily rate. Please note that the daily rate for the Digital Futures Garage is set by a third-party operator and may not be the same as the on-campus rate.

You may wish to use our convenient form to track vouchers through the accounting process. Visitors may appreciate a copy of the instructions on how to use the vouchers. Print several pages, and cut them into quarters.

*An important note for student organizations: Please consult with the Office of Student Activities and Leadership Development prior to order validations.

Parking Services requires five business days' notice for all orders.

An expedite service fee of $25 will be assessed to all orders requested with than less than five (5) business days’ notice.

An expedite fee of $40 will be assessed to all same day orders.

Parking validations are not accepted on Uptown West Campus during Home Game Days.
