Parking Permits

Permission to park is virtual 

Parking privileges are assigned to your UNCC MyPark account (based on your status in the University) and verified through license plate recognition (LPR). Equipment installed at decks and lots will scan the plate as a vehicle enters and exits.

If LPR fails, your 49er ID Card serves as a secondary credential. 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.

2020-21 UNC Charlotte parking permits will go on sale beginning Aug. 1, 2020.

Motorcycle/moped permits

You must register your motorcycle or moped with PaTS to receive a virtual permit linked to the vehicle’s license plate. Permit allows parking in designated motorcycle/moped spaces. If you wish to park in a standard parking space, a permit must be purchased at the regular vehicle permit price. 

Full Year (in designated motorcycle/moped parking) $113 $125

See proration schedule.
Partial Year (beginning Summer; in designated motorcycle/moped parking) $52

Front plate option for those who back in to park

LPR 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. If you wish to back in, you may purchase an alternative front plate from PaTS for $20. 

This alternative plate will have your state-issued license plate number printed on it and be readable by the LPR technology. 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 pats@uncc.edu 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. (Turnaround time is 7-10 business days.)

Unable to buy a permit at this time?

For those who need to delay the purchase of a full-time permit or only need to park on campus occasionally, daily permits are available for $8 per day. You may purchase daily permits for as many days as you need.
