Renewal of parking permits

To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Larry Pageler, Transportation and Parking Services

If you have not yet purchased or renewed your parking permit, please consider doing so now at By using the online application, and picking up your permit before September 19th, you’ll avoid the “crush” of Fall Quarter, and will minimize the amount of time spent standing in line. Due to the heavy volume of permit applications, please allow up to four business days to process your parking permit.
Permits ordered on-line after September 6th will not be mailed out, but held for pick up at the TAPS Sales Office between 7:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Friday. From September 24th through October 2nd, a tent will be erected in Lot 116 (intersection of Carriage House and Ox Team Roads) specifically to distribute these prepaid permits; the tent will be staffed between 7:00am-4:00pm.
If you use quarterly permits, you can renew up to one month in advance; use the online application, and then bring your permit to the Sales Office for a new sticker.
If you have any parking permit-related questions, please call 459-4543 or email
