Parking & Transportation

Parking at the University of Utah is entirely virtual, meaning your license plate serves as your parking permit.  Housing & Residential Education (HRE) residents have three different options when signing up for a parking permit.  The best option may be based on where you live and how you intend to use your vehicle.


To purchase a parking permit, go to Commuter Services Parking Portal
