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 and/or license plate (virtual permits).  All permits must be authorized and issued by Parking Services.  In lots 14, 16, 18 and 25, one-day permits can be purchased from a dispensing machine via cash, credit card or by utilizing the "whoosh!" app on a mobile device.

Student (C permits) are issued on a calendar month basis, and can be purchased in the parking office.

Student 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.
