Fall Parking Permits

Dear Members of the Campus Community:

Campus parking applications will be available online between May 4th and May 15th.  You may apply at any time during this period as the date of your application has no bearing on the prioritization of your permit allocation. New lot assignments will be become effective September 1st.

The new parking areas can be found on the map by Clicking Here{pdf}

Anyone wishing to be allocated an individual permit to park on campus during the coming year, including those seeking a disability or universal permit, must apply using the online system when open enrollment begins. Individuals applying for a carpool permit must complete a paper application, which can be faxed (412.268.7825) or returned to the University Center Parking Office.

We remain committed to keeping parking rates as modest as possible, while maintaining a balanced budget in light of continuous improvements to our parking facilities and services.

Anyone wishing to be allocated an individual permit to park on campus during the 2015-16 year, we encourage you to apply online by May 15th.  In order to ensure that all requests are considered, you must re-apply each year, even if you are currently a permit holder.  Demand for parking is expected to be very high and we anticipate, once again, that lots will be at capacity during 2015-16; therefore, we strongly suggest that you select multiple preferences. 

If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Thank you,
