Permit Type List and Descriptions
Student- Currently enrolled students. This permit allows parking in student and economy lots.
Economy- All students, faculty, and staff are eligible.
Resident Reserved- Currently enrolled students living in University of Arkansas housing facilities based upon date of housing contract and space availability. Also allows parking in student and economy parking areas throughout the year.
Garage- Issued for specific garages and sold to individuals based upon application. Priority is given in this order: faculty and staff, disabled persons, on-campus resident students, and off-campus students (graduate students, seniors, juniors, sophomores, and then freshmen). Faculty and staff garage permits will be renewed annually based on space availability and their responding by the deadline. On-campus resident garage permits will be renewed annually based on the University Housing priority list and the applicant responding by the deadline. Off-campus resident garage permits will be renewed on a space available basis, in the order listed above if space is available after all faculty, staff, and on-campus resident requests have been fulfilled. New off-campus resident requests will be issued based on space availability and in order of application date.
Faculty/Staff- Full-time University of Arkansas faculty and staff members or part-time University of Arkansas employees who work at least 1,000 hours annually and are not enrolled in more than five class hours each semester.
Reserved (Blue) - Issued for a specific lot and sold to individuals by application only, to be renewed annually. Be advised that your application gets your name added to a waiting list and does not ensure you a reserved permit.
ADA (Accessible) - Annual ADA parking permits will be issued at the normal fee to any student or employee who has a state ADA parking placard or license plate issued in their name. Temporary ADA parking permits will be issued for the same length of time as the state temporary placard or for a maximum of 7 days based on an appropriate and licensed physician’s statement recommending a temporary ADA permit.
Visitor/Vendor Temporary - Temporary Visitor parking permits allow parking in the following University of Arkansas parking lots: Faculty/Staff (yellow signs), Student (green signs), Economy (orange signs) and parking meters (gray meters only).
Motorcycle -Parking for motorcycles only (50cc and over engine displacement). Motorcycles may also park in unoccupied parking meter spaces by paying the meter fee. Motorcycles may not be parked in Faculty/Staff, Student or Economy parking spaces or in the Harmon Avenue Garage. Reserved permit holders who wish to park their motorcycle in a reserved lot instead of their primary vehicle must first purchase an approved permit display device in order to properly display the Reserved permit on the motorcycle. Faculty/Staff permit holders may purchase an approved permit display device to display their Faculty/Staff permit on their motorcycle and park it in motorcycle parking. This eliminates the need to purchase an additional motorcycle permit.
Scooter- Students and Faculty/Staff. Two-wheeled motorized vehicles under 50 cc. Valid in designated scooter parking areas only. To purchase a scooter permit, please fill out the vehicle registration form and bring to the parking office on Razorback Road or in the Harmon Avenue Parking Garage.
Reserved Scooter - Students and Faculty/Staff. Two-wheeled motorized vehicles under 50 cc. Valid in designated reserved scooter parking areas only. To purchase a reserved scooter permit, please fill out the online Reserved Scooter Application.
