GOOD NEWS- if you are a homeowner or non-student renter and you have an approved permit, you may swing by to pick up your guest passes! Please understand that we are still very busy, so there may be a wait time. Bring your driver's license WITH YOUR ADDRESS. If you are a renter, you will need to bring your lease.



We are experiencing extremely high volumes of emails and phone calls currently and are doing our best to respond to each and every one. Please understand that we have a small staff available to service our permit system.

If you are unsure if your area requires a parking permit, you may search your address in the map found here:

If you are reaching out because your permit was denied and you want to set up an appointment to come apply in person, please click this link: and make an appointment.

If you are reaching out for the status of your permit, please check your email. We are currently up to date with our permit responses and you should have received an email stating whether you were approved or denied.

 If you were denied your response included why you were denied and what documents were missing. You'll need to resubmit your original documents along with the missing items. If you need help, you can stop by WITH hard copies of all documentation. Please be advised that walk-ins will be serviced after all appointments.

If you are reaching out to purchase guest passes, if you are a homeowner or a NON-student renter, you may stop by and pick one up between the hours of 9-3. If that doesn't work for you, email and let us know what hours do work. We can probably arrange to stay late to coordinate.

If you are reaching out to dispute a ticket, information on how to proceed and unacceptable grounds for appeal may be found here:

We hope this information may help serve you better.  Thank you for your patience.
