TAPS' mission is to protect the parking spaces of those who pay for and properly display a valid parking permit to ensure a safe and user-friendly environment is maintained on campus. Parking citations will be issued to those who do not abide by UC Merced's parking regulations.
Parking permit purchases are on a first come first serve basis; this means certain parking permits may or may not be available at any given time. Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee space availability.
Hourly Non-Affiliated Visitor Parking Permits
Visitor permits are for temporary parking in Lake Lot 1, Lake Lot 2, Evolution Valley Lot and the Library Lot. Visitor permits are only valid in the lot that they are purchased from.
