Monthly Parking Permit
For those faculty and staff traveling to campus 12 days or more in a month as their primary work schedule are required to purchase a monthly permit.
Virtual parking permit purchases are on a first-come, first-served basis; this means certain virtual parking permits may not be available at any given time. Waiting lists are maintained by the TAPS office. Visit the My UC Merced Parking Portal for purchase options.
Graduate Students are eligible for Faculty/Staff paid parking via monthly payroll deductions if applicable. Graduate Students on Fellowships are required to come to the Parking Office to pay the permit rate in full or by the semester.
