Student Parking Permit Sales 2024-25

All students may apply for a parking permit via the following link ACCESS YOUR PARKING ACCOUNT during our annual sign-up process. An e-mail will be sent to all with this link and the dates on which each group will be eligible to apply. Once in the university's parking system, we will advise you which color zones are available for purchase. 

All vehicles parked on campus are required to have a valid UM parking permit and must park head-in only. Parking permits are issued with an assignment to a specific color zone. Park in your assigned color zone where the lots and/or garage entrance sign includes the color matching your parking permit. 

To avoid fines, towing, and possible disciplinary action, all vehicles parked on the Coral Gables campus should adhere to these policies. Familiarity with, and attention to, the University of Miami's Parking Policies and Procedures is the most effective way of avoiding parking citations. Campus parking is strictly enforced Monday through Sunday 8 a.m. - 11 p.m.

EV Charging Stations are available throughout campus. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the EV Charging Station parking policy.

For detailed information on the rules and regulations about parking on campus, refer to our Parking Policies and Procedures.
