Permit and parking information

Every vehicle operated on the University of Nevada, Reno campus is required to register with the Parking and Transportation Services Department 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 Permits remain University property and can be reclaimed if an individual's parking privileges have been revoked.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 not transferable. The only exception to this is a motorcycle/moped and bicycle permit can also be purchased in addition to a vehicle permit.

Be advised that while permits are transferable to any vehicle you register with Parking and Transportation Services, the permit cannot be given or sold to another person.  If the permit holder is no longer on campus, the permit must be returned to the Parking Office.

Vehicles shall be parked only in authorized, designated parking zones. Please note, not every space is signed with its designation. A list of permits and parking zones is available below.
