Parking Permits and Parking Options
Unless marked otherwise, all parking areas at UC Davis Medical Center, including off-site and leased facilities, are reserved for permit-only parking for staff, government or vendor/service vehicles. To use these areas, vehicles must display a valid permit and/or license plate.
Vehicles not displaying or associated with a valid permit may be subject to a parking violation citation, whether payroll deductions are still in effect or not.
Only a "D" permit allows the holder a reserved parking space in assigned area. All other permits do not guarantee the holder a reserved parking space. It provides the opportunity to legally park where space is available.
