Campus Department Sponsored Permits

While there is no free parking on campus, sponsored permits are available for purchase by campus departments only. They are not available for purchase by guests. 

Sponsored permits:

  • Are not intended for use by students or employees of the University.
  • Can be purchased in advance for $2.00 each by a host campus group. It is the host department's responsibility to distribute the permits to event guests. Blank permits not filled out by host departments are subject to citation. 
  • Are valid for one day only in any “G” stall on campus between 7:30 am and 5:00 pm.
  • After 5:00 pm, a sponsored permit is valid in most parking stalls on campus with the exception of on campus residential lots or those stalls posted for state or other campus vehicles only.
  • Are also valid in any campus disabled stall when displayed with a valid DMV placard.

Purchase of the permits can be coordinated through Student Financial Services in the Student Services Center Room 230 or by calling 530-898-5936.


Having a sponsored permit does not guarantee the availability of a parking space nor does it exempt guests from campus parking regulations. As with any parking violation, a citation may be issued if a vehicle is found to be parked illegally.

Alterations to permit will result in a citation issued to the user.

If a guest arrives without a sponsored permit, an hourly campus parking permit is available through the Passport Parking App. Cost is $1 per hour.
