Permit & Parking Information

Please consider sustainable transportation options such as riding a bike, riding a bus, carpooling, and/or walking to campus, before requesting a parking permit.

A valid UNCG parking permit must be properly displayed on all student vehicles at all times when parked on University property. UNCG students (including freshmen) are eligible to purchase a UNCG parking permit based on their residency classification (commuter vs. resident).

Please Note
Some permit types are limited in quantity and are sold on a first come first serve basis or by wait list. Prices for permits vary by type. Student permits are charged to student accounts for payment. Permits purchased after August 1 are prorated daily.

Parking permits are the property of UNCG Parking Operations and Campus Access Management (POCAM). Permits may not be sold, given away, transferred, or borrowed. The permit holder on record is responsible for all violations. If you choose to purchase a parking permit, it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with campus parking regulations, NC state laws for motorized vehicle operators, as well as campus safety guidelines for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.

A permit is required to park on campus. Permits are valid for up to one year and expire on August 1 of the specified permit year. Waiting lists are maintained and students are notified by email as additional permits become available. To see the most up to date information on which permit types are currently wait listed, please go to parkingpermits.uncg.edu and look under permit types.
