Other Faculty and Staff Parking Permits
Two-Person and Three-Person Carpool Permits (reduced-fee)
Two-Person Carpool Permits will have either Yellow or Blue Permit privileges based on mobility needs and the qualifications of the primary holder as assigned by the department. Carpools made up of three (3) full-time employees automatically receive Blue Permit privileges, except when graduate student employees are members of a carpool. The primary lot assignment will be determined by the primary permit holder’s department.
Clean Fuel Vehicle Permit
Only Federal Inherently Low Emission Vehicles (ILEV’s) are eligible for a UCLA Clean Fuel Permit. Cars that meet these requirements are typically certified pure zero emissions vehicles (100% battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell) and compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. Only vehicles eligible for a DMV White Clean Air Vehicle Sticker are eligible for a UCLA Clean Fuel Permit. To determine if your vehicle is an ILEV, go to the California Air Resources Board website. You will need to submit a copy of your current DMV White Clean Air Vehicle Sticker in order to purchase a UCLA Clean Fuel Permit.
A Disabled Permit allows qualified employees to park in stalls designated for persons with disabilities within assigned areas throughout the campus. When parking in any stall, including those reserved for persons with disabilities, permit holders must display a valid DMV disabled license plate or a DMV placard in addition to the Disability Permit.
Courtesy Permits are for volunteers, donors and clinical faculty who provide uncompensated services to UCLA, and who are on campus no more than two (2) times per week and no more then four (4) hours each visit.
If a volunteer is on campus more than four hours, two days a week, a full-fee permit should be purchased for them. A written request must be submitted by the Parking Coordinator to Parking Services for approval. Any request for a Courtesy Permit must be made in advance by writing to Parking Services. Faculty, staff and students of the University are not eligible to purchase or use any type of courtesy parking. Donors may obtain Courtesy Permits through the External Affairs Department. Hospital Volunteers may obtain Courtesy Permits through the Hospital Volunteer Office or the NPI Volunteer Office. Clinical Faculty who qualify for this type of permit should go to their departmental Parking Coordinator.
