Tips to Avoid Tickets Make sure to enter the correct parking space number when using the pay stations. Pay stations must be paid in increments of 20 minutes. Have a properly displayed, valid UA parking permit.
Tips to Avoid Tickets The objective of the zone parking system is to provide you with a reliable chance of finding a space in your zone. Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. Use this link for information about where you can use your permit
Tips to Avoid Tickets Pay close attention to signs and park in marked spaces only. Most lots have signs at their entrances to let you know what types of restrictions apply, and the hours of enforcement. If your vehicle becomes inoperable and you cannot move it right away call our Dispatch office at
Tips to Avoid Tickets Do not sell or transfer your permit to another person. Permits are the property of The University of Arizona Parking & Transportation Services and may not be transferred or resold. It is recommended that you not lend your permit to another person. Citations are the responsibility of the person to whom the permit was sold, not the driver of the vehicle.
Tips to Avoid Tickets Paying your tickets does not make it okay to violate the Parking Traffic Rules & Regulations. If you receive six or more tickets in one permit year, you are considered a persistent violator. Each time you park illegally your vehicle will be booted or towed.
Tips to Avoid Tickets $500 Disabled spaces are not Load/Unload spaces. You must have a disabled placard or license plate. The disabled sign will address whether or not a UA disabled parking permit is required. Citations for parking illegally in disabled spaces are $500.
