Commuter Parking

Commuter parking is available to employees, students, and campus associates. Parking lots are divided into 10 different zones by location and offered at three different price points. Permits can be purchased for an Academic Term, 30 Day, or Single Day duration. Permit holders may park in any unmarked space within their zone as well as unmarked spaces in lower-priced zones. 


Eligibility is determined by your affiliation in Banner. Those with active student or paid employee affiliations in Banner will have access to Academic Term and 30 Day permits. Students living in residence halls will have access to the appropriate Resident permit. Day permits are available to those with an active affiliation as well as visitors to the University of Oregon.


Permit costs vary based on which zone your permit is valid in. Permit prices are shown for each zone below as well as on the parking portal. After the start date, Academic Term permits are pro-rated based on the published schedule. Payment can be made by credit card and either payroll deduction or student billing, depending on university affiliation. Additional payment information is at the bottom of the page.


Term permits are available for purchase up to five weeks before the permit begins, with the first two weeks reserved for existing term permit holders to renew their permit. Visit the permit purchase page to learn more. 30 Day and Single Day permits are available on a rolling basis. Sales of all permit types are limited based on available capacity in a zone.

A Zones

There are four A Zones on campus. These zones are best for those who need access to the center of campus or who would like a very high likelihood at finding a space at any time of day. Permits in A Zones are sold on a 1:1 basis with available spaces. A Zone permits may also park in B and C Zones, but may not park in other A Zones. Selecting a zone image below will open a pdf that shows parking locations available to that permit.

There are four B Zones around campus, proximate to classrooms, labs, and offices. These zones are managed so that permit holders have a reasonable likelihood of finding parking at most times of the day. These lots may be full at peak times. B zone permits may also park in C zones, but may not park in other B Zones.

Payment Options

If an employee opts to pay for a term permit through payroll deduction:
Only term permits purchased in the first three weeks of permit sales are eligible for a payroll deduction.
Payroll deduction will occur over three months:

  • Fall Term Permit: September, October, November
