All UC Berkeley parking areas require a valid parking permit for the area from 5:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., Monday through Friday. To be eligible for a parking permit, you must be affiliated with the University.

Parking permits must be clearly displayed at all times while parked in campus parking areas. 

Faculty and staff permits are valid July 1 through June 30 of each fiscal year and are prorated at the time of purchase. Although Parking and Transportation provides renewal options prior to the end of each fiscal year, faculty and staff are responsible for proactively renewing their permits and displaying a valid permit.

Employee parking permits are for individual use only.

See the purchasing section for how to purchase an employee parking permit.
