Student Parking & Permits

Unless marked otherwise, all parking areas at UC Davis Medical Center, including off-site and leased facilities, are reserved for permit-only parking for students, staff, government or vendor/service vehicles. To use these areas, vehicles must have a valid permit, which is tied to the license plate number. 

The ParkMobile app can be used to purchase daily permits valid in any B permit stalls. The zone code at the Medical Center is 42201. Make sure that you register with your email address to receive the affiliate rate of $2.32 per day.

B permits are issued on a calendar month basis and can be purchased in the parking office.

B permit parking is on a "first-come, first-serve" basis and does not guarantee the holder a reserved parking space. It provides the opportunity to legally park where space is available.

Permits are not for resale and are not transferrable to other persons. Permits are for use by the purchaser only. Only one parking permit may be purchased per person.
