FOR TRANSPORTATION COORDINATORS

VALIDATION CODE ORDERS

Validation codes are intended for university departments and their invited guests. These codes are issued to department transportation coordinators through online requests. Parking validation codes are non-transferrable and may not be shared. Fraudulent use of validation codes is subject to a $300 fine.

Transportation coordinators must authorize the forms below when assisting new employees with parking registration.

Administrative permits are issued to a department on a limited basis upon request. It is the transportation coordinator's responsibility to control the use of the administrative permit among department employees.

Permit Description

The administrative permit is for temporary use by individuals within the requesting department to attend meetings, special functions on campus, or to otherwise meet department needs. The administrative permit must be displayed with a current valid DOTS individual faculty/staff registration. It may not be loaned to any one individual for more than a 24-hour period.

Administrative permits are not valid in disabled parking spaces, move in/out spaces, fire lanes, unpaid meter spaces (including meters located in permit areas), areas controlled by pay stations, roadways, service areas, courier spaces, Zipcar spaces, carpool spaces, state vehicle spaces, designated tow-away zones, reserved event spaces, or any other area not designated as a parking space.

Administrative permits are not valid during athletic events. This permit may not be used to enable a person to park as close as possible to their office/workplace or for convenient overflow parking. Violators may be issued a citation.

The security of the permit is the responsibility of the user. In the event of loss or theft, it is the department's responsibility to notify DOTS immediately in writing. All requests for replacement of lost/stolen administrative permits are subject to the approval of the Executive Director of DOTS and to payment of a lost/stolen fee.

The after-hours Campus License Plate Registration (CLPR) is issued to graduate assistants (GAs), teaching assistants (TAs) and resident assistants (RAs), who have professional or academic commitments that necessitate access to restricted lots from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., Monday to Friday and all day on weekends.

Permit Description

The lot permit is valid in the assigned after-hours lot from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. only, Monday to Friday and all day on weekends. A finite number of after-hours permits are available in pre-determined lots. After-hours registrations are not valid during athletic events.

The all-campus permit is issued to individual faculty and staff members with departmental approval, or to departments that are located off campus. Individuals with all-campus permits must register and pay for their regular faculty/staff permit.

Permit Description

When approved, the permit will be issued and the recipient will be assigned a base lot from the quotas assigned to the department. All-campus permits are not valid in disabled parking spaces, move in/out spaces, fire lanes, unpaid meter spaces (including meters located in permit areas), areas controlled by pay stations, roadways, service areas, courier spaces, Zipcar spaces, carpool spaces, state vehicle spaces, designated tow-away zones, or any other area not designated as a parking space. All-campus permits are not valid during athletic events.

*Currently, all-campus permits are also not permitted in Lot HH. 

Courier permits require individual parking registrations. They are issued to departments on a limited basis upon request and are valid from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, unless otherwise noted. It is the requesting department’s responsibility to control the use of the courier permit among department employees.

Permit Description

Courier permits are for use by department employees on a temporary basis to make deliveries and pickups or to perform similar functions necessary to the operation of the department. Courier permits are valid only in courier spaces, faculty/staff lots, and student lots. Courier permits must be displayed with a current valid CLPR. The security of the permit is the responsibility of the user. In the event of loss or theft, it is the department's responsibility to notify DOTS immediately in writing. All requests for replacement of lost/stolen courier permits are subject to the approval of the Executive Director of DOTS. Lost/stolen replacement fees apply.
