Parking permits for the fall semester and academic year will be available for purchase beginning 8 a.m. June 1. Information on options and pricing is available on the Student Parking page. UAB Transportation will continue to offer zone parking options. 

It is important that students select the best zone to meet their needs, as exchanges may not be possible. Please review the Maps and FAQ tab of the Student Parking page to identify changes to various parking zones for the fall semester.

A few reminders about student permits:

  • A permit is required to park in a UAB parking area.
  • Permits are sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Once purchased, permits are mailed to the address students provide.
  • Parking fees are posted to your Student Account at the beginning of the fall semester.
  • You are encouraged to apply early to ensure your desired zone is still available, as exchanges may not be possible.
  • We expect permits to sell quickly, and you are encouraged to order your permit as early as possible.

If you are unable to purchase a parking permit in your preferred zone, UAB Transportation encourages you to consider developing parking arrangements or options other than bringing a vehicle to campus. Transportation options include using public transit, carpooling, ride-hailing apps, or moving closer to campus in order to bike or walk.
