It's Time to Purchase Your New Parking Permit: Deadline is Aug. 15

University Relations

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Students, faculty and staff can now buy their 2017-18 U of A parking permits online. Transit and Parking is sending individual emails this week with detailed instructions for buying a new permit.

Online ordering is available by logging into My Parking Account, registering all vehicles you will be parking on campus and providing payment. Current Faculty/Staff permits are valid until Aug. 15, or until a new permit arrives in the mail.

Current Student permits are valid until Aug. 15, or until you pick up your new permit at the Transit and Parking Department.

Anyone without a current permit can print a temporary permit after purchasing an annual permit to use until the new permit arrives.

Students on the wait lists for Resident Reserved or Garage parking are encouraged to wait until at least Aug. 11 to purchase a Student permit. There are wait lists for both garage and resident reserved parking. If you are on the wait list for either, Transit and Parking will contact you at your UARK email address if a space becomes available. If you want to be added to the garage wait list, register here. If you do not receive an offer of garage or resident reserved parking by the time you arrive on campus, logon and purchase a student permit. 

Departments with one-day visitor parking should continue to use these permits as they have in the past, until contacted by Transit and Parking.

Please contact Transit and Parking at or 575-7929 if you have questions about this information or parking permits.
