Student Permits

FALL SEMESTER STUDENT PERMITS

Generally, fall semester permits would go on sale in mid-May. Due to the restrictions related to COVID-19, sales will likely be postponed. Watch our home page, this page or email for an announcement of the beginning of fall sales.

About Freshman Parking

Yes, freshmen are allowed to bring cars to campus.

The real question is, do they really need it? Consider these thoughts and alternatives before making the decision.

  • As an urban campus, almost everything you need is within walking distance.
  • Many freshmen don't end up using their vehicles as much as they expected to, and their permit ends up being an expensive storage fee.
  • Many alternative transportation campus and area options are available, including:
  • Intercity options, including GoBus, Megabus, Barons Bus, and more.

Billing Process for Student Permits

When students choose to purchase a parking permit at the beginning of a semester, the cost will be added to the student's university billing account through the Office of the Bursar. Students can still pay the daily rate in the garage by cash or credit card.

The change will be especially helpful for students who rely on financial aid. Other than the payment type, the process for purchasing permits will remain the same.   

Student permit holders are reminded to keep vehicle information current in the parking database, so that Parking Services can monitor and protect spaces for permit holders.

Students permit options also include Evening-Only, valid from 3 p.m. - 5:59 a.m. Monday through Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Permit Sales Schedule

Student permits may be purchased by semester. Semester permits will generally be available for sale on the following schedule:

  • November 1 - Spring Semester
  • April 1 - Summer Semester
  • May 14 - Fall Semester - See notice above about COVID-19 delay

The UC ID/Bearcat Card is used for parking access, and will be activated within 2 hours of purchase. Students may also purchase a Fast Pass, which will allow hands free access in and out of their garage.

Cancellations

The permit holder is responsible for notifying the Parking Services office to cancel parking.

Refunds for cancelled parking are made on a prorated basis. Hangtags (except Fast Passes) 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.

  • Fall semester permits: November 1
  • Spring semester permits: April 1
  • Summer semester permits: July 1
  • Summer short term permits: No refund after the first week of classes

No refunds are issued for permits revoked due to misuse.

Off-Campus Student Parking

Victory Parkway remote parking available for $100 per semester

Remote parking is available to students who commute at our Victory Parkway location for only $100 per semester. Space is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.

The lot is located at 2220 Victory Parkway, so if you’ve coming from Northern Kentucky or Eastern Cincinnati, this is a great way to save money on parking! Shuttle service will be available to main campus.

This option also includes evening (after 6 p.m.) and weekend access to the Campus Green garage. If you have already purchased a permit on campus, it is still possible to switch lots and take advantage of this new option.

Save money on parking and use your time on the shuttle to be productive!
