Faculty/Staff Parking Permit Purchase Guide

Faculty and staff can purchase a parking permit in person at our office or online. New permit purchase must occur when first parking on campus as an employee. Permit preorders will be mailed out before school starts. Permits for reserved lots and garages depend on availability. Cost may be prorated to reflect purchase date and expiration date. Prorated cost appears at checkout.

Step 1: Gather Your Documents

To purchase a permit, be prepared to provide the following information:

  • NCard
  • Vehicle license plate number
  • Vehicle make and model
  • Vehicle year
  • Vehicle Color
  • Provide the same information for any vehicle that could be used with this permit

Reserved Permits

Note: Reserved faculty/staff permit holders are assigned to A parking lots when visiting East Campus. F10 and SA permits are valid in any parking lot.

The following guidelines will be used to assign reserved parking spaces in the F10 and F12 lots.

  • Each Chancellor/Vice Chancellor has been allocated a number of spaces in the F10 and F12 parking lots and is responsible for managing his/her own allocation of space. The methodology for allocating these spaces may vary from one Vice Chancellor to another.
  • Faculty and staff parking in these lots will pay the current reserved parking spot rate.
  • Individuals wishing to park in the F10 or F12 parking lots must contact their respective Vice Chancellor. Please note, it is up to the individual Vice Chancellor's discretion on how these spaces are allocated.
  • The Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance's Office will maintain an annual listing of the allocation and will distribute it to the Chancellor/Vice Chancellor's in May of each year so if there are changes to be made, it can be accomplished just prior to the annual parking permit sale period.

Additional Permit Information

Parking facilities users must agree to and be familiar with their use agreements and regulations upon purchasing a parking permit or using a UNL-controlled parking facility.

Non-reserved parking permits are based on availability and do not guarantee a parking space. The Additional Permit Information page lists more information regarding proper permit usage and display, and how to replace or change a permit.

Cancellations

Permits ordered online that are not mailed must be picked up within 30 days of the permit's effective date or purchase date, whichever is later. If it is not picked up, the permit will be voided and a one-month fee will be assessed.

Requests for permit cancellation can be made in person, by email or U.S. mail. If the actual permit has been processed and mailed, it must be returned to Parking & Transportation Services for cancellation and refund processing.

Refunds

Cancel your parking permit by returning the actual permit to UNL Parking and Transit Services. If you no longer need to park on campus, return the permit for credit to student accounts and to cancel payment obligations. Faculty and staff must return any bus pass issued with the permit.

  • Refund amount for a fully paid permit equals the cost of the permit, minus the monthly fees since purchase and any unpaid citations
  • A Check for the refund amount will be mailed within 6 weeks
  • To stop a payroll deduction, return the issued permit to the PTS office. The unpaid balance will represent your refund.

Please be Aware

Restriction on Use of UNL & University or Foundation Funds for Purchase of Parking Permits

No campus department may use state, revolving, grant, contract, or other university funds or University of Foundation funds to pay for faculty/staff or student parking permits. Campus departments may purchase parking permits for special events, research participants, departmental vendors and visitors.
