UVU Parking Permits have gone Digital!
Spring 2013, UVU went to a License Plate Recognition technology replacing the need
for hangtags and stickers at the UVU campus. What this means for you, our students
and faculty/staff, is you no longer need a hangtag on campus. A permit is still required
to park on campus, that permit is now a digital permit with your license plate number
being the key component. Your license plate becomes your virtual permit on campus
once it has been associated to a purchased permit record.
- Students - you can simply buy your parking permit online through UVLink. Under the
Student tab in UVLink, look in the center column for the Buy Parking Permits link.
You will be taken to a wizard that will guide you step by step through the process
of buying your permit. We can also serve you in our main parking office. Those students
obtaining a disabled permit, or buying any permit on a sponsored account will need
to come to the main parking office as these permits are not available online. Have
your vehicle information ready when you purchase your permit as we will be associating
the permit to your car at the time of sale. We cannot issue a permit without a valid
license plate to assign it to.
- Employees - we added an online form for employees to renew their permits online. Employees
can find this form here. Please note if you have an existing permit that is valid for the current semester,
you do not want to use this form, simply contact us at 801-863-8188 to add your vehicle
to your permit.
- Visitors - all visitor parking on the UVU main campus is now located in the Parking
Garage or Lakeside Visitor Lot. These are hourly pay lots and anyone parking in these
lots is required to pay the posted rates. UVU Parking Services no longer issues visitor
Here are some tips regarding parking at UVU in regards to this new system:
- You must park in a stall with your license plate facing the roadway from which you
entered the stall. To put it simply, if your vehicle does not have a front license
plate, you will not be authorized to back into stalls on campus. A license plate must
be facing the roadway. A citation will be issued if a license plate is not visible to the roadway.
- Make sure that the plate number you give us or enter is accurate, if you are even
one digit off on the license plate number, the permit will not be associated properly
and your vehicle may be cited. It is your responsibility to ensure your plate information
is accurate. If you are in doubt, write down the plate number before purchasing the
permit so you are not relying on memory only.
- Be sure to only park vehicles that are associated to your parking permit when at UVU.
If for some reason you need to drive a different vehicle that has not been associated
to your permit, please contact us to add it to your permit. Any vehicle parked on
campus that is not associated with a permit is subject to being cited.
- We can only associate a vehicle to one permit. This means if you have a vehicle that
is sometimes used by a student, and other times used by an employee, you will need
to decide which permit to associate that vehicle to and only park in a stall where
that permit is valid when using that vehicle. Parking a vehicle in a lot/area that
is not valid for its current permit will result in a citation being issued.
- If you have multiple vehicles associated to your permit, please note that only one
of those vehicles is allowed on campus at a time. If a second vehicle associated to
that permit is found on campus within an hour of the first vehicle being on campus,
it may be cited.
- You may only park your vehicle in a lot that is authorized for the permit you purchased.
If you obtained a purple permit, you can only park in lot L10, if you purchased a
yellow permit, you may park in any yellow lot or L10. Yellow permits are also valid
in employee stalls after 4:15 PM. Employee permits are valid in all green, yellow,
and purple lots.
- Make note of when your permit expires at the time you obtain it (TIP: add the expiration
date to the calendar in your email or smartphone). You will need to renew your parking
privileges when the permit expires.
- If you purchase a new vehicle and currently do not have the license plates, please
call parking services and give us the temporary placard number and expiration date
that should be displayed in the vehicle while the license plates are processed. We
can add this temporary placard number to your permit to allow parking before your
plates arrive. If you do not have a temporary placard, they can be obtained from the
DMV. Please contact the DMV at their website: dmv.utah.gov or their toll-free number at 1-800-DMV-UTAH if you need a temporary placard for your
