Due to unprecedented demand for undergraduate student parking at UC Santa Cruz, Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) suspended the sale of long-term (e.g., annual, quarterly, monthly, and weekly) R permits. There is a wait list; however, based on the daily usage of the lots since the suspension, it is unlikely that we will be able to release more than a few permits this academic year. There is an appeal process for those who are eligible for parking privileges and have critical parking needs; the Appeal Packet is available at the TAPS website.
Update: Weekly R permits can be purchased now, based on availability.
For commuting students (i.e., those who aren't living on campus), there are a limited number of undergraduate permits available on a daily basis as space allows. These are sold daily on a first-come, first-served basis at the TAPS Sales Office, Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 5:00pm.
