Missing, Lost or Stolen Parking Permits

The parking office officially lists annual permits missing when:

  • A missing permit report is filed by a permit holder who suspects the permit is lost or stolen.
  • The permit holder leaves the university without returning the permit to the parking office.
  • Parking fee payments have lapsed and the parking office’s attempts to contact the permit holder fail.

Immediately report a missing permit.

Permit holders

  • File a missing permit report (Word file) and take it to the parking office.
  • Only the registered permit holder can file a missing permit report.
  • Annual permit replacements are free.
  • Short-term permit replacements must be purchased, so protect your short-term permit.
  • Your lost or stolen permit becomes invalid after you file a missing permit report.


  • Report any loss or theft of permits your department or organization has purchased in bulk.
  • Take proof-of-purchase documentation tothe parking office to cancel a lost or stolen permit and add it to the missing-permits list.
  • Contact the UCSD Police Department immediately if multiple permits are missing.
  • Purchase replacement permits at the parking office. A discounted rate is available in some situations — complimentary replacements are not available.

To ensure you’re not displaying a permit listed as missing:

  • Purchase your permit from the parking office only.
  • Refuse any offer to use a permit someone else purchased.
  • Return a found permit to the parking office immediately. The penalty for using a permit that’s been reported missing is $350.
