Parking for Visiting UC Faculty and Staff

The systemwide parking reciprocity policy provides limited complimentary or discounted parking permits for UC faculty and staff who conduct business at other campuses.

UC San Diego visitors

Visiting UC faculty and staff who hold annual permits at their home campuses are eligible for up to 5 consecutive days of complimentary parking at UC San Diego.

  • Purchase a parking permit if your visit will exceed five days.
  • Obtain your complimentary parking permit by presenting your valid UC ID and current home campus parking permit or receipt of purchase at our Gilman parking office.

Reciprocal parking privileges vary by campus. If you plan to conduct business at another campus, contact its parking office for details:

Note: Reciprocal parking privileges do not apply to UC students. Students visiting another campus must pay for parking.
