Faculty and Staff Cross-Parking and Permit Reciprocity


UCLA faculty and staff permit holders may cross-park in an alternate lot or structure on campus according to the privileges of your permit type. Check Parking Permit Privileges (PDF) for details.

If you are a UCLA employee with a Yellow Permit who needs to travel to distant areas on campus for job-related duties, you will need a daily alternate area transfer if you require parking in a lot or structure not included in the privileges of your Yellow Permit. Go to an Information & Parking Booth to inquire about obtaining a day transfer.

If you have a medical appointment on campus:

Faculty and staff permit holders who have medical appointments on campus can cross-park in Medical Plaza or Jules Stein during Information & Parking Booth hours only, Monday through Friday, for a maximum of three (3) hours.

Employees must pay full price on Saturday, Sunday, and when Information & Parking Booths are closed. Please check the Information & Parking Booth hours prior to your appointment to avoid being charged the daily rate. There is no cross-parking in RRUCLAMC.

You must show your parking ticket along with a valid parking permit when exiting. Employees with Night or Weekend Permits must pay the daily rate.

Please note: Yellow permit holders for areas 1, 8, 9, and 18 are no longer valid to cross-park in Jules Stein or Medical Plaza.

During finals weeks:

During finals weeks, faculty and staff with Yellow or Orange Permits will be allowed to cross-park in certain alternate parking areas. For more information, go to any Information & Parking Booth for assistance.

Faculty and Staff Parking Permit Reciprocity

University of California Policy

The University of California campuses offer reciprocity for faculty and staff parking permits. Each campus has a unique set of circumstances relating to various parking issues (spaces availability, rates, access by gate, kiosks, specific designated lots, etc.). Because of these differences, the permit holder should contact the campus parking office to arrange reciprocal parking. By contacting the campus, faculty and staff will know what to expect before they get there.

When you arrive at the campus you are visiting, stop at the Information & Parking booth or the Parking Office to obtain a permit for that specific campus at no charge. This will enable the host campus to give appropriate information about available parking and additional access (such as a mag stripe access ticket to UCLA gate-controlled areas) if needed. The individual must present a current, valid parking permit from their home campus as well as a current UC ID in order to be eligible for reciprocal parking.

Reciprocity among the UC campuses expedites University business for faculty and staff members at the host campus and is valid for up to five consecutive days per quarter. If an employee from another UC campus is working or teaching for a longer period than five days, they must purchase a permit from the host campus.

Student permits do not have reciprocity. Students from other UC campuses must purchase parking at each individual campus according to the availability and rate for that campus. If a student from one campus is enrolled in a class at another campus, the student should apply for a permit according to the regulations and eligibility set forth by the host campus.
