summer 2023 permit salesParking permits for the Summer 2023 semester will be available to order through the UAB Transportation website beginning 8 a.m. April 1. You can find a full list of permit options, as well as pricing, on the Student Parking page.

UAB Transportation will continue to offer zone parking options. For the summer, students residing in UAB residence halls will be able to order a permit in Zone A or Zone H. Students not living on campus will have an opportunity to choose a permit from Zone B through Zone G.  Zone C will not be available during the summer semester.

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 learn about the zones.

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 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.
