If the preferred virtual permit falls under the waitlist only option, you may add your name with the current email address via My UC Merced Parking Portal.
As space becomes available, the system will release virtual permits by lottery. If your name is randomly selected through the lottery process, you will receive a time-sensitive email offer and you will have the chance to accept or decline the permit. If you do not respond by the date listed with each offer, your name will be removed from the waitlist and the space will be offered to the next customer selected in the lottery.
Please note, waitlists are not carried over from year to year and must be renewed annually.
