University of Oregon

Reserved Spaces Parking

The University has a number of long-term reserved parking spaces available for reservation under certain circumstances.  A reserved space may be available to faculty/staff meeting certain criteria, carpools, to departments with frequent visitors, and to employees and students with temporary or permanent disabilities.  A reserved parking space may be purchased for a fee, through application to the Department of Parking and Transportation.  Reserved space fees are in addition to regular parking permit fees (except those with disabilities, see below).

Faculty/Staff Reserved Parking

Parking spaces may be assigned to employees who have official University duties that require constant travel to meetings and other events on and off campus during the regular business day. Applications for reserved parking spaces must describe the nature of the employee's assignment that makes a reserved space necessary and must be signed and verified by the employee's dean or department head.  Spaces are reserved only from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.  A limited number of reserved spaces are available for an additional fee, for employees who require a space for 24-hours/7 days a week.  Reapplication for a reserved space is required annually.

The decision to reserve a space for an applicant rests with the Director of Parking and Transportation. 

Carpool Reserved Parking

A carpool is defined as a group of three or more people who ride to the UO campus area together. At least two people in the carpool must be faculty, staff or students. A mixed carpool of faculty, staff and students shall be assigned the appropriate permit based upon the majority in the carpool. Applications are available online (.pdf ) or from the Department of Parking and Transportation. A carpool interested in obtaining a reserved parking space should so indicate on the application, and a space may be allotted for an additional fee.

Carpool Reserved Parking Spaces will be reserved from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

State Vehicle Reserved Parking

A department that owns a state vehicle ("E" license plate) may request a reserved parking space annually for that vehicle at no charge by submitting an application to the Department of Parking and Transportation.

Spaces are reserved only from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Departmental Reserved Parking

A department may request one or more reserved parking spaces annually for regular visitors, clients and guests coming from off-campus by submitting a Reserved Space Application (see above).  Spaces are reserved only from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Reapplication for a reserved space is required annually.

Disabled Reserved Parking

All persons who park in University-owned parking lots, other than in metered spaces, during the period of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Monday through Friday) must obtain and display a University of Oregon parking permit or pay to park. A DMV issued Disabled Person Parking placards may not be used in lieu of a University issued parking permit or in place of payment at Pay-To-Park lots. DMV issued Disabled Person Parking placards are, however, honored at parking meters on campus for the duration of the meter.

All faculty, staff and students who have a DMV Disabled Person Parking placard and who purchase a University of Oregon parking permit may park in any ADA space on campus. 

If further accessibility options are needed, the Accessible Education Center or the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity are available to review individual situations and determine if a different parking accommodation is appropriate. 

Additionally, faculty, staff, and students who do not have a DMV Disabled Person Parking placard, but are in need of mobility accommodations, may contact the Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity or Accessible Education Center for permission to use ADA spaces on campus or receive a different parking accommodation with purchase of a permit. Please see the Office of Affirmative Action web site for more information.
