Information for Campus Departments

PTS offers several short-term parking options for departmental guests and meeting attendees. In addition to visitor/short-term parking, we have permit and payment options that may suit your department’s needs.

Parking Options

  • Parkmobile is the leading provider for on-demand and prepaid mobile payments in more than 600 locations nationwide. This third party vendor has serviced CU-Boulder’s campus constituents for over three years and now offers an avenue for departments to pay for their visitor’s Euclid Auto Park. To pay for department guests at Euclid Auto Park pay-by-plate pay stations each department will need to open a “Basic Membership” account with Parkmobile. (This is the only account that allows guests/visitors to park within your account.)  Log onto Parkmobile to begin your registration process. If you need assistance in setting up your department account the phone number for Parkmobile’s Help Desk is 877-727-5457. To open your account, you will need a department credit card, which will be charged each time you enter a guest validation on your “Personal Pages”.

  • Meter debit cards are available at the customer service window in $50 increments.

  • Campus department business permits – Departments that require employees to use personal vehicles to commute about campus while on department business may benefit from a campus business permit. Business permits authorize temporary parking in specified parking lots, most gray meters and parking payment machines for university business purposes. A primary parking permit must be displayed with a campus business permit. Click here to fill out an Annual Business/Vendor Permit request form.

The Basics

Two completed forms must be submitted to PTS to receive parking permits for your faculty and staff.

  • The Parking Permit Allocation Request Form is required for all new and exchange permit requests.
    1. Please fill out the form completely.
    2. Attach the allocation request to the top of the permit application and give both to the employee.
    3. The employee should bring both forms to PTS for processing. While here, they can purchase a temporary permit to start parking right away.
  • The Faculty/Staff Parking Permit Application (see "Forms" below for Spanish version) is required for any permit issued for a month or longer.
    1. The employee should complete both the customer and vehicle information sections, sign and date the application. A signature is required for the permit to be processed and for payment by payroll deduction.
    2. The local address is the employee’s home or mailing address.
    3. Please be sure that all of the vehicle information is current and includes the month and year that the registration will expire.
    4. Carpool permit applicants will be required to fill out an application for each user with one employee designated as the primary permit holder for payroll deduction purposes.
