Important Parking Information

Permits are required to park anytime the University is open. If you do not have a permit, you must pay to park in a visitor area. Please have a current valid permit properly displayed on your vehicle or park in a Visitor deck or in a metered area until a permit is obtained.

Documentation needed to purchase a permit:

  • 49er ID card
  • Vehicle registration
  • Driver's license
  • Proof of vehicle insurance (if is not on registration or has changed) 
It is illegal to park anywhere on campus other than in a marked parking space.
  • The absence of "No Parking" or "Fire Lane" signs, or lack of curb paint does not suggest that parking is permitted.
  • Enough room for a vehicle to park does not suggest that parking is permitted.
  • You many only leave your vehicle in marked parking spaces. There are no exceptions.
  • The University of North Carolina at Charlotte assumes no liability – under any circumstances – for damaged, vandalized, stolen or impounded vehicles.
