University of California Policy
The University of California campuses offer reciprocity for faculty and staff parking permits. Each campus has a unique set of circumstances relating to various parking issues (spaces availability, rates, access by gate, kiosks, specific designated lots, etc.). Because of these differences the permit holder should contact the campus parking office to arrange reciprocal parking. By contacting the campus, faculty and staff will know what to expect before they get there.
When you arrive at the campus you are visiting, stop at the Information & Parking booth or the Parking Office to obtain a permit for that specific campus at no charge. This will enable the host campus to give appropriate information about available parking and additional access (such as a mag stripe access ticket to UCLA gate-controlled areas) if needed. The individual must present a current, valid parking permit from their home campus as well as a current UC ID in order to be eligible for reciprocal parking.
Reciprocity among the UC campuses expedites university business for faculty and staff members at the host campus and is valid for no more than five consecutive days. If an employee from another UC campus is working or teaching for a longer period than five days, they must purchase a permit appropriate to the host campus.
Student permits do not have reciprocity. Students from other UC campuses must purchase parking at each individual campus according to the availability and rate for that campus. If a student from one campus is enrolled in a class at another campus, the student should apply for a permit according to the regulations and eligibility set forth by the host campus.
