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.

Campus Move Out and Commencement Limited Enforcement

May 3rd through 5th we will not require parking permits for residential lots including: J, I, T, Q, ZS, R, V and Arlington for students moving out of residents halls. A map indicating these lots can be found here. 

To welcome early arrivals for Spring Commencement, we will not require parking permits in all lots May 6th and 7th.

Fire lanes, services spaces and ADA spaces are enforced at all times. To maintain campus safety, please do not park in these spaces.

Permits will be required in all lots over Summer Break. Please email Parking Services with questions. 


Parking Violation Update

As of January 21, 2021, Parking Violation 141 has been updated from "Obstructing Crosswalk" to " Obstructing a crosswalk or sidewalk with any part of the vehicle". 

This violation is enforced to ensure that vehicles do not park in such a manner as to limit the usable space of a sidewalk or crosswalk. ADA guidelines stipulate that pedestrian traffic areas be at least 36” wide. This rule is also enforced to allow campus snow removal equipment 36” of space as well. This is a matter of safety. Please email Parking Services with questions or concerns.


2021 Parking Permits

Permits for the 2021 Spring Semester 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 $200 (includes K lot) 
Faculty/Staff $249 (includes K lot) 
Commuter Permit $119 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.
