Did you know that your campus parking permit can be honored at other UC campuses? That means you can attend meetings at other UC schools, or invite UC colleagues to UCR, and not have to worry about paying for hourly parking.

That’s because all 10 campuses participate in a parking reciprocity program. Best option before visiting a campus, though, is to read on permit reciprocity.

Faculty and staff who work at another UC and pay for a long term (quarter or annual) parking permit issued from that campus, may receive up to five days of complimentary parking each fiscal year at UC Riverside.

UC colleagues can obtain a complimentary UCR parking permit by presenting their valid faculty or staff parking permit along with a photo identification at the main campus kiosk or the Parking Services Building. All vehicles are required to have a valid UCR parking permit to park in any UCR campus lots.

Locations to pick-up a complimentary parking permit are:

  • Parking Services Building: Located on campus at 683 W. Linden Street
  • University Kiosk: Located on W. Campus Dr., South of University Avenue

Reciprocity of parking permits is not extended to students.
