Parking area Lake Tahoe campus

Every vehicle operated on the University of Nevada, Reno Lake Tahoe campus is required to register with Parking Services and obtain an appropriate parking permit.

Permits must hang from the rear-view mirror or be placed in a clear pocket and attached to the passenger side of the windshield. Permit information must face outward to be clearly visible. Permits remain University property and can be reclaimed if an individual's parking privileges have been revoked.

Individuals are allowed to purchase one permit per person, per academic term and parking permits are non-transferable. The only exception to this rule is that you may purchase a Motorcycle/Moped or free Bicycle permit in addition to your primary vehicle permit.


Parking permits

The University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe’s parking system is based on a zoned parking system. Currently, all parking lots are designated as a Blue 1 parking zone and a Blue 1 parking permit is required to park on campus. Additionally, Blue 1 Lake Tahoe permits are valid on the main campus in the same Blue 1 parking zone. Conversely, all valid main campus parking permits may be utilized on the Lake Tahoe campus in all Blue 1 zones (excluding reserved or metered spaces). Zone permit fees can be found on the parking permit fees page.


Rules and enforcement

All parking lots on the Wayne L. Prim Campus require proper permits to be displayed Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Permits are not required on the weekends or holidays.
