Special Residential Permit

A special permit will be available for purchase by students who will be parking a vehicle on campus between  March 15, 2021, and May 2nd, 2021.  This permit will cost $45 and will be split into two categories; Students with Yellow residential access and Students with Orange, Silver, and Tan access.  Students with Yellow residential access will receive an RFID sticker for their $45 purchase, and it will only provide access to the Ferguson Parking Deck.  Students with Orange, Silver, or Tan residential access may purchase a monthly permit at $45, but it will only provide access to the surface lots in their respective zones.  The RFID stickers or monthly permits are valid from March 15 – May 2nd and can be acquired at the Parking Services Office located inside the Transit Hub at 451 Campus Drive East between the hours of 8:00 a.m. –  5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Limited Parking Permit for Faculty/Staff

We have extended our accommodation to those that do not require daily parking by offering a limited parking permit to Faculty/Staff.  This permit is valid only in non-gated surface lots.  The permits must be purchased in person at Parking Services, located inside Campus Drive Parking Deck in the Bus Hub. Payroll deduction is not available for this limited permit.  Credit cards, cash, and check are accepted, but credit cards are preferred to reduce contact.


Faculty Staff who continue to split time between their UA office and remote office can take advantage of a $45 two month permit. Permits are valid for the month they are purchased and the following month. Permit cost and active status are not prorated by the day of purchase.

This fall, The University of Alabama will be utilizing ParkMobile to provide our customers with a more convenient option to pay for timed parking on campus.  This option is an app for your phone, and you only need to complete a few steps to begin using it:

  • Download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store
  • Register for the service; (email, password, payment info)
  • Find the parking space with the Parkmobile sign (the app has a parking locator as well) with the zone number.
  • Then enter the zone number to identify the parking area where your vehicle is located and start the session.  You also have the option to opt-in to receive a reminder 15 minutes before the expiration time, and this will allow you to add more time to your parking.

We are pleased to provide this service as it allows us to offer more flexibility and convenience to the overall parking experience.
