Parking at UVU

All vehicles parked on campus require a parking permit.

We anticipate significant parking and traffic congestion at the beginning of each semester. The following suggestions may speed up your parking experience:

  • Allow extra time to commute to campus and find a parking spot.
  • Ride UTA.
  • The parking garage is a cost-effective alternative at just $1 per hour (2 hour minimum).

Please understand that purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee a parking spot in a desired location.

How to park at UVU

Parking Services offers 3 semester and 1 semester permits. A parking permit is required during the summer. 

Your license plate is your permit and no physical permit is required.

Certain parking lots fill up first in the morning — lots L3, L5, L6, L8, L14, M21, and M25. These lots are close to campus buildings, making the demand for spots in these lots very high. If you want to park in these lots, you will need to plan accordingly. We highly recommend when parking is congested that you park in lots L9, L10, or M29. These lots are slightly farther away but the demand and competition are much lower. You can park and walk to class from these lots in an average of 10 minutes.

Riding UTA to Campus

Using UTA is a quick, easy, and car-free solution to parking on campus. Students, as well as current faculty and staff, are eligible to receive a free UTA pass with their UVU ID card. Students must be registered for a minimum of one credit hour for the current semester to be eligible for the free pass. The UTA transit pass allows use of UTA buses, TRAX, FrontRunner, and UVX.

UVX picks up and drops riders off at the front of campus every 6 to 10 minutes.
