Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff seeking campus parking privileges must be assigned to a lot by their Transportation Coordinator.

Speak with your department's transportation coordinator to register for a parking permit and learn about your parking options. All parking lots on campus are managed through Campus License Plate Registration (CLPR). CLPR is a system that uses your existing state-issued license plate number to assign and enforce parking privileges.

Lots Z and 1

Your parking registration is valid for your primary assigned lot and overflow lots. You may be directed to park in your overflow lots if a special event or construction impacts your assigned lot. Faculty and staff overflow lots are Lots K, P, U, V, X, XX1, Z, Stadium Drive Garage or any lot on campus that begins with a number EXCEPT for Lot 2.

You may add up to four vehicles to your parking registration. However, only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time. Full details and restrictions are available in our parking regulations.

for umuc faculty and staff

UMUC evening faculty and staff do not need a permit to park in the unrestricted parking areas after 4:00 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends and university-observed holidays. However, UMUC faculty and staff must register and properly display a current valid permit/decal to park in the faculty/staff restricted parking areas.

You will need to update your parking registration if your vehicle license plate number has changed, or if you are driving a new vehicle that is not currently on your permit. To make these changes to your parking permit, please log in to your parking account and update your vehicle information before arriving to campus. 

If you wish to change your parking lot assignment, please speak with your department's transportation coordinator. 


Your department's transportation coordinator will assist you in obtaining your parking permit and completing the required forms below. These forms must be authorized by the transportation coordinator prior to visiting the DOTS office at Regents Drive Garage.

Faculty and staff who only need to park on campus occasionally may purchase a bundle pack of parking permits from the DOTS office in Regents Drive Garage. Each bundle pack allows a vehicle to park on campus for a total of 10 separate days and costs $75. 

To be eligible for these permits, you cannot have a DOTS parking registration or CLPR. Faculty and staff members using these permits may park in Lots B, K, P, U, V, X, XX1, Z, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 15, 16, 19 and Stadium Drive Garage. 

carpool permits

We encourage the university community to make eco-friendly commute choices. Carpools that register with DOTS receive 50% off their permit and may park in all parking garages on campus, as well as all of the lots assigned to each member. Please visit our carpool and vanpool page for more details and registration instructions. 

other options

View our parking regulations to see other available parking permits, such as alumni permits, emeritus permits, retiree permits and after-hours permits.   


Payroll deduction registrations are a pre-tax benefit deducted from your paycheck over the course of 20 pay periods. Deductions are not taken over the summer. Employees who are hired during the summer will be required to pay in order to activate their registration until payroll deduction resumes.

Enrollment and Confirmation

Your transportation coordinator will assist you in pre-tax payroll deduction enrollment. Upon completing and submitting the required forms, you will see deductions begin up to two pay periods after enrolling. To confirm that deductions are being taken, employees may look under taxes/deductions for “20-PAY PARKING” on pay statements.

Missed Payments 

It is the responsibility of the employee to contact DOTS if deductions are missed for any reason. As long as the registration is active and payroll deduction is in place, the registrant is responsible for all payments. 

Although parking fees are deducted at a pre-tax rate, DOTS cannot give pre-tax rates for missed payments. The employee is responsible for any missed deductions.


Payroll deduction registrations do not expire and it is the responsibility of the employee to cancel the parking registration when it is no longer needed and to send the payroll deduction cancellation form to DOTS.


Employees wishing to pay cash, check or credit card for their parking registration will need to have their transportation coordinator renew their parking registration on a yearly basis, or as needed.

Permit Cancellations

If you cancel your permit beginning 4/18/2019 to 5/1/2019, the last deduction for your permit will be taken from the paycheck issued for PP23.
