Parking and Transportation Issues Reminders for Students

Students may register for a parking permit by visiting or by downloading the UToledo Parking app. All vehicles on campus are required to have a permit.

“We are excited to welcome our UToledo students to campus,” said Sherri Kaspar, director of parking and transportation services in Auxiliary Services. “We are pushing for every single student to register for a parking permit in aims of reducing citations given out this semester.”

Student permit types are assigned based on earned credit hours and residential status. To learn more about your permit type, visit the parking permits web page. Note the first letter of the permit is your permit type. For example, if your permit reads “K Underclassman Commuter” your permit type is “K.”

Alphabet letters indicating permit types are listed on signs at the entrance of each lot and on the light poles. Visit Parking and Transportation Services’ website to view a complete campus map. Yellow and white lines indicate employee and student parking, respectively. Students may park in white-lined spaces that pertain to their permit type. After 4 p.m., students may park in yellow-lined spaces unless otherwise posted. To avoid receiving a citation, always face your license plate to the drive aisle.

New this fall, registered UToledo permit holders may park in most lots after 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday. UToledo permits are still required to park on campus.

Exceptions include:

• Reserved, disabled and metered spaces, which are enforced 24/7;

• Lot 14 between Memorial Field House and MacKinnon Hall on Main Campus and lot 44A next to Collier Building on Health Science Campus;

• Lot 25N between the Gateway and Rocket Hall and 27A next to Ottawa West: No parking from 1 to 6 a.m.; and

• Patient lots on Health Science Campus.

If you are looking to leave your car at home, check out the alternative transportation methods available on campus. UToledo offers bus services, electric scooters and a bike-share program with a fleet that includes bicycles and tricycles, as well as tandem and hand-pedal options. For more information, visit the Parking and Transportation Services’ website.

Parking and Transportation Services communicates primarily through your UToledo email, this includes ticket notifications. Ticket notifications will be sent to your UToledo email account if you are an active student or employee. Most violations are e-tickets and will not be placed on your vehicle. If the vehicle is not registered properly, your ticket will be sent in the mail to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Download the UT Parking app to manage your parking account with ease and stay up to date on what’s new. Do you drive more than one vehicle to campus? You can add as many vehicles as you would like to your profile and easily switch between them. The UT Parking app allows you to purchase your parking permit, update vehicle information, pay citations, and be the first to hear of parking changes and alerts.
