Long-term Parking Options

To purchase Faculty/Staff parking access, employees should contact their department’s parking liaison. The liaison will begin the application process. To identify your department’s liaison, email the Faculty/Staff Permit Coordinator. CU Boulder features "virtual" parking access, with no need for printed hang tags. The vehicle's license plate information is registered and associated with the parking access, so your license plate is used to identify your vehicle and is valid to park in only the specific lot or zone you purchase. Parking at meters and pay station lots requires additional payment.  When the virtual access is activated the Faculty/Staff Permit Coordinator emails both the permit holder and their Parking Liaison. When campus lots are closed/impacted for events and maintenance, parking patrons will receive an email with an alternate parking option (excluding our campus Move in event, when alternate transportation options are necessary.)

Temporary Parking Options

Faculty and staff who do not wish to purchase long-term parking may purchase short-term parking. Day, week, and month increments are available, and  may be purchased by phone at (303) 735-PARK (7275). Please have your license plate available.

Temporary Employees

Temporary employees may purchase temporary parking; payroll deduction is not available for temporary employees. Purchase by phone at (303) 735-PARK (7275). Pay with credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.)
