Purchasing UW Tacoma Parking Permits

Purchase Quarterly Parking Passes ONLINE!

Effective immediately, customers purchasing UW Tacoma parking permits must provide a valid EID/SID, UWNetID, and emergency contact phone number. Customers must also provide the make, model, color, and license plate number of their primary vehicles. Be sure to have this information on hand when placing your order.

Parking passes are available to registered UW Tacoma students, staff and faculty on a first-come, first-served basis.

UW Tacoma campus parking lots are managed by Diamond Parking, and community partner lots are managed by both Republic Parking and Diamond Parking.

Permits are not sold on a pro-rated basis (you pay the full amount no matter when you purchase it).

Permits purchased via the online purchasing tool will be mailed to the shipping address provided as soon as they are processed. Permits will not be available for pick-up.

Only one permit may be purchased per person.
