Contractor, Facilities Services, and Vendor Permits

All UC Berkeley parking areas require a valid parking permit for the area from 5:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m., daily. There are a number of different types of vendor permits available. Depending on the reason for your parking request, arrangements can be made with the assistance of UC Berkeley Construction and Design, a campus department, or Parking and Transportation. 

Contractor Parking 

Contractor parking permits are available to contractors working with UC Berkeley Construction and Design or another UC Berkeley department, and must be requested by the sponsoring UC Berkeley department. Permits are only valid in the area or space indicated on the permit, and the application must include the signature of an authorized representative from the sponsoring UC Berkeley department. These permits are available as both daily scratch-off permits and as monthly permits requiring renewal stickers every month. To request a contractor permit, the sponsoring UC Berkeley department must fill out a contractor parking permit application on behalf of the contractor and submit it to email:

All contractor parking applications must be submitted 5 business days prior to the requested start date. 

Parking spaces may also be purchased for construction use as temporary laydown and staging areas of materials required for projects. Any parking facility used for construction must be protected from damage, and departments are responsible for the cost of repairs for any damage to parking facilities caused by the use for construction.

Parking permit fees for approved construction vehicles can be paid by either the contractor, or the requesting department.  

Fees for the Use of Parking Spaces for Construction must be paid by the requesting campus department. 

All fees for parking permits and the use of parking spaces for construction must be paid 3 business days prior to the effective date.


This permit is available to vendors performing service and repair work for a UC Berkeley department. Service/Repair permit holders may only park in designated service/repair spaces. This permit is available as a monthly permit requiring renewal stickers each month or as a daily scratch-off permit.  To apply for a service/repair permit please contact P&T at

Facilities Services

There are marked spaces for facilities services vehicles throughout campus. These spaces are for the use of designated facilities services vehicles only; non-facilities services vehicles and other campus permit holders will be cited if parked in these spaces. 


UC Berkeley departments and campus vendors are eligible for campus loading/unloading permits. These permits allow parking in loading zones for up to 45 minutes.  Please visit the Parking and Transportation office with verification of the department(s) being serviced and a business card or other business identification to request a loading/unloading permit.
