Permission to park is virtual
Parking privileges are assigned to your UNCCMyPark account (based on the type of permit you buy) and verified through license plate information (LPR). Equipment installed at decks and lots will scan the plate as a vehicle enters and exits. If there is a gate, it will be signaled to lift; if LPR fails for any reason, your new 49er ID Card serves as a secondary credential – just tap your card at the equipment column and hold until it beeps. In lots without gates, the system recognizes vehicles with virtual permits and enforcement is alerted when cars are parked without permission. For more information, watch the video below.
LPR management requires a clear license plate view, so unless your tags are from a state that issues both front and back plates, you may not back in to a parking space. However, if that’s a preference you wish to keep, you may purchase an alternative front plate from from Parking and Transportation Services (PaTS).
This alternative plate will have your state-issued license plate number printed on it and be readable by the LPR technology. The price is $20. You do not have to pay to renew the plate when your permit expires. It is good as long as your state-issued rear plate number remains the same and the front plate is readable by the LPR system.
To order a front plate, email email@example.com with the subject line “Front plate” AFTER you have ordered your permit. Be sure to include the license plate numbers(s) of the vehicle(s) to which you are adding the front plate(s). You will then be notified by email when the option to pay for the front plate(s) is available in the MyPark portal. Front plates may be picked up at the PaTS office after you receive notification of its arrival.
In order to have your plate(s) ready before classes begin, order your permit by Aug. 1. Otherwise, you won’t be able to back in until you receive your plate. (Turn-around time is 7-10 business days.)
