COVID-19: News and campus updates | University policies and resources


Parking services staff is currently working remotely. If an in-person appointment is necessary, contact parkingservices@unco.edu.

Welcome to UNC Parking Services

University of Northern Colorado parking rules and regulations are enforced year round.
Signs posted at parking lot entrances indicate hours of enforcement and types of permit required for parking in that lot. Most of UNC's Parking lots require a permit 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Delay in permit orders

Due to delays within the US Postal Service, please anticipate longer wait times to receive your parking permit in the mail. Email Parking Services with additional questions. 

Parking Enforcement begins September 8th

Parking Services will start writing citations for parking infractions beginning September 8th. Please be sure to have your permit purchased by this time. 

2020-2021 Parking Permits

Permits for the 2020-2021 academic year are now on sale.

This summer, Parking Services transitioned to new parking management software that facilitates the office’s commitment to customer service. The online purchase and payment system, called iParq, will be used from now on by UNC students, faculty and staff to purchase permits. Once purchased, permits will be shipped directly to students, faculty and staff, eliminating the need to visit Parking Services to pick up permits. Additionally, the campus community and visitors will be able to pay citations or file appeals online. 

Moving forward, payroll deduction for employees will not be available, but there will be options to either pay in full with a one-time credit card payment or set up monthly credit card payments through the online system.

Also, the cost structure for annual permits has been simplified with the following options for campus community members:

Student $285 (includes K lot) 
Faculty/Staff $320 (includes K lot) 
Commuter Permit $180 View the parking map for a list of increased commuter lots
Remember, students and faculty can park in commuter lots, but commuter lot permits are not valid in Student and Faculty/Staff lots.
