Employee Annual Permit Information

Annual parking permits for the 2020-2021 academic year for full-time faculty and staff and fall 2020 semester permits for adjuncts go on sale Monday, August 3. Purchase your permit online with a debit or credit card or via payroll deduction.

Employees must have a permit to park on university property. Warnings for expired permits will be issued beginning Thursday, Aug. 20.

Purchase your permit
Log into ULink at https://ulink.louisiana.edu. On the Employee tab in the Parking and Transportation section, click the Access My Parking Account link. Select Get Permits and follow the prompts.

Your permit is successfully purchased when you receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive confirmation, contact the Office of Transportation Services at parking@louisiana.edu.

If you are on a wait list, you should purchase the permit you had for 2019-2020. Zone availability will be assessed in early September. If you are eligible to transfer your permit to another zone, you will receive an email by Sept. 30.

Request to park in a different zone
Transportation Services attempts to assign employees to the parking lot closest to the building in which they work. In some cases, lots may be at maximum capacity. In these cases, employees will be assigned to the closest available lot.

Employees who wish to change their allotted permit zone may add their names to the wait list for specific zones. Log in to ULink at https://ulink.louisiana.edu. On the Employee tab in the Parking and Transportation section, click the Access My Parking Account link. Click on the Add/Edit Waitlists button.

As space becomes available in a zone, Transportation Services will email those on the wait list in the order they signed up. A $10 transfer fee will be charged to an employee whenever a zone change is awarded through the wait list.

Do not wait to purchase your permit because your name is on a wait list.

Reminder of Zone Name Change Last Year

Zones 32, 33 and 36 were combined into one permit area called Zone PER (perimeter) last year. Anyone with an annual permit for 2019-2020 in zones 32, 33 or 36 will only see the Zone PERFS option when purchasing the 2020-2021 annual permit. Individuals with any Zone PER permit are allowed to park in any of the three areas at any time.

Adjuncts

Adjunct parking options for 2020-2021 include hourly parking or semester permit in Girard Park Circle Parking garage (GPC), Zone PER (Perimeter) permits and night permits. Hourly parking on floors 1 & 2 in GPC is $5 for the first 2 hours with a 2 hour minimum and then $1/hour thereafter. Fall 2020 semester permits for floors 3-6 in GPC are $325 and are a guaranteed parking location every class day. Night permits allow for parking after 3 pm in non-gated and nonresidential lots and after 4:30 in gated areas. The Girard Parking Tower is not included in the approved areas for the night permit.

Register an additional vehicle
Your license plate links your vehicle to your permit for campus parking. Faculty, staff and adjuncts may link up to two license plates to a permit, but only one vehicle is allowed to park on campus at any time.
