Welcome to CU Boulder! A permit or pass is required to park in any parking lot on campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Your license plate is your permit (after it is registered and the permit fee is paid). Your license plate must be 100% accurate, or you may receive a ticket. We encourage you to plan ahead for your days on campus to get the best lot options available. You must log into your parking account to get advanced access and discounted rates.

  • Faculty and Staff logged into their account may purchase thirty days in advance.
  • Students logged into their account may purchase eight days in advance.
  • Non affiliates may purchase permits three days in advance.
