Given that the university is operating remotely during the coronavirus pandemic, President Loh announced on April 2 that employee parking payroll deduction will be suspended until on-campus operations resume.
Beginning with the check issued on April 17 (which covers the current pay period, March 29 to April 11), payroll deductions for parking will stop until on-campus operations resume beginning with the check issued on April 17, which covers parking from March 29 to April 11.
If you did not cancel your parking payroll deduction prior to April 2, no further action is required. Your deductions will be automatically suspended. As a reminder, parking fees are not deducted during summer sessions.
If you canceled your payroll deduction prior to April 2, your deductions have already stopped or are already scheduled to end on April 17. Your permit will remain in canceled status until you decide to re-enroll in campus parking. If you wish to re-enroll when on-campus operations resume, you must do so through your department’s transportation coordinator.
If you purchased your parking permit upfront using cash, check, or card, you will be refunded for the amount paid for parking between March 29 and May 29. One of our customer service staff will be in touch with you after April 16 to discuss refund options.
Faculty and staff seeking campus parking privileges must be assigned to a lot by their Transportation Coordinator.
Speak with your department's transportation coordinator to register for a parking permit and learn about your parking options. All parking lots on campus are managed through Campus License Plate Registration (CLPR). CLPR is a system that uses your existing state-issued license plate number to assign and enforce parking privileges.
Your parking registration is valid for your primary assigned lot and overflow lots. You may be directed to park in your overflow lots if a special event or construction impacts your assigned lot. Faculty and staff overflow lots are Lots K, P, U, V, X, XX1, Z, Stadium Drive Garage or any lot on campus that begins with a number EXCEPT for Lot 2.
You may add up to four vehicles to your parking registration. However, only one vehicle may be parked on campus at a time. Full details and restrictions are available in our parking regulations.
for umuc faculty and staff
UMUC evening faculty and staff do not need a permit to park in the unrestricted parking areas after 4:00 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends and university-observed holidays. However, UMUC faculty and staff must register and properly display a current valid permit/decal to park in the faculty/staff restricted parking areas.
You will need to update your parking registration if your vehicle license plate number has changed, or if you are driving a new vehicle that is not currently on your permit. To make these changes to your parking permit, please log in to your parking account and update your vehicle information before arriving to campus.
If you wish to change your parking lot assignment, please speak with your department's transportation coordinator.
FOR NEW EMPLOYEES
Your department's transportation coordinator will assist you in obtaining your parking permit and completing the required forms below. These forms must be authorized by the transportation coordinator prior to visiting the DOTS office at Regents Drive Garage.
Faculty/Staff Parking Application Form (Ask your transportation coordinator)
Most university faculty and staff register for a daily parking permit. These permits are valid in your primary assigned lot as well as overflow parking.

Faculty and staff who only need to park on campus occasionally may purchase a bundle pack of parking permits from the DOTS office in Regents Drive Garage. Each bundle pack allows a vehicle to park on campus for a total of 10 separate days and costs $75.
To be eligible for these permits, you cannot have a DOTS parking registration or CLPR. Faculty and staff members using these permits may park in Lots B, K, P, U, V, X, XX1, Z, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 15, 16, 19 and Stadium Drive Garage.
We encourage the university community to make eco-friendly commute choices. Carpools that register with DOTS receive 50% off their permit and may park in any carpool designated space located in all garages on campus, as well as all lots assigned to each member. Please visit our carpool and vanpool page for more details and registration instructions.
View our parking regulations to see other available parking permits, such as alumni permits, emeritus permits, retiree permits and after-hours permits.
PRE-TAX PAYROLL DEDUCTION
Payroll deduction registrations are a pre-tax benefit deducted from your paycheck over the course of 20 pay periods. Deductions are not taken over the summer. Employees who are hired during the summer before August 7, 2019 are required to pay for their permit using cash, check, or card payment until payroll deduction resumes in the fall. Payment options for the summer permit are available.
Enrollment and Confirmation
Your transportation coordinator will assist you in pre-tax payroll deduction enrollment. Upon completing and submitting the required forms, you will see deductions begin up to two pay periods after enrolling. To confirm that deductions are being taken, employees may look under taxes/deductions for “20-PAY PARKING” on pay statements.
It is the responsibility of the employee to contact DOTS if deductions are missed for any reason. As long as the registration is active and payroll deduction is in place, the registrant is responsible for all payments.
Although parking fees are deducted at a pre-tax rate, DOTS cannot give pre-tax rates for missed payments. The employee is responsible for any missed deductions.
Payroll deduction registrations do not expire and it is the responsibility of the employee to cancel the parking registration when it is no longer needed and to send the payroll deduction cancellation form to DOTS.
Two payment options are available when activating a permit during the summer months:
1. Pay the entire sum at the time of activation.
2. Defer the payment for up to 45 days. Full or incremental payments may be made at any time during that 45 day period.
Individuals who pursue the deferred payment option should go to the DOTS office to obtain a temporary permit and make arrangements to pay for the summer permit during the next 45 days. Permit payments can be made in any size increment, as long as the permit is paid off by the end of the 45 days. If the permit is not paid off by the end of the 45 days, the temporary permit is no longer valid, and the employee does not possess a valid permit to park on campus. Refunds for partial payments will not be processed.
CASH, CHECK or CREDIT CARD REGISTRATIONS
Employees wishing to pay cash, check or credit card for their parking registration will need to have their transportation coordinator renew their parking registration on a yearly basis, or as needed.
