Reciprocal Parking Privileges

Staff and faculty with full-time parking contracts receive reciprocal parking privileges. This allows you to park in a specific location on a campus other than your assigned facility, if space is available.

Reciprocal space is not guaranteed. When event rates are in effect or we need to accommodate a large group reservation, space availability is at the discretion of the parking attendant on duty.

Note: PTS will issue special reciprocal parking permits allowing contract holders to park in specified alternate contract facilities, as space permits, for needs due to teaching or research. These permits will be issued for specific periods upon written request.

Reciprocal parking benefits are NOT available on football gameday Saturdays.

This benefit is also not available for:

  • Student contracts
  • Department contracts
  • Evening contracts
  • Fairview Hospital employees
