Faculty and Staff Parking

Faculty and Staff lots are enforced using Campus License Plate Registration (CLPR). CLPR is a system that uses your existing state-issued license plate number to assign and enforce parking privileges.

Exception:UMUC evening faculty/staff do not need a permit to park in the unrestricted parking areas after 4 p.m. daily, and all day on weekends and university-observed holidays. However, UMUC faculty/staff must register and properly display a current valid permit/decal to park in the faculty/staff restricted parking areas.

Full details and restrictions are available in Parking Regulations.

Please contact your department’s parking coordinator to determine your parking assignment. They will assist you with the process.

Faculty and staff with a current active registration are allowed overflow parking in 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.

New employees should first meet with their departments transportation coordinator (DTC) who will assist in filling out the forms below. These forms must be authorized by the DTC prior to visiting DOTS office at Regents Drive Garage.
