NEW for the 2016 Fall/Academic Year Student Permit Sale!!

This year’s student permit sale now includes a WAITLIST option! If the parking lot you wanted is no longer available, you may now place your name on a waitlist for that lot. When you add your name to the lot specific waitlist, you can view how many others are on the list before you.

Parking Services recommends that you purchase an available permit during the sale, so you’re guaranteed a parking space in the event no permits for your waitlisted lot become available. You will be contacted with instructions on how to exchange your permit when/if a parking space becomes available.

Morning/Evening and Weekend Parking

  • Several main campus parking lots don’t require a permit (no-charge parking) weeknights from 5:00 PM - 7:30 AM and on weekends (starting 5:00 PM Friday evening - 7:30 AM Monday morning). The largest such lots are 169, 308 and 436. Always read the signs at lot entrances, or call PTS at 303-492-7384 for more information.
  • If you need campus access in the morning, evening, or weekends (for classes or work), an AM/PM permit may benefit you. AM/PM permits may provide closer parking to your campus destination than the free lots, and they are available in several time increments. Visit our AM/PM permits page.
