Retiree and Emeriti Enhanced Parking Program

If you are a lifetime member or a current annual dues paying member of the UCRRA or the UCREA, you can obtain a free enhanced parking permit as part of your membership.

The enhanced parking permit will allow you to park on campus in the Red spaces in lots 6, 13, and 24, the Blue spaces in lot 1, and in any non-resident parking spot in the Bannockburn parking lot.  You can obtain your new enhanced Retiree and Emeriti  Parking Permit from Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) office at 683 Linden St.  

You will need to show an ID and TAPS staff will verify that you are either a lifetime UCRRA member or have paid your UCRRA membership dues for 2017-2018.  Retirees on a recall appointment are not eligible to receive the enhanced  parking permit.  TAPS staff will also provide maps to show you the exact location of retiree parking lots and spaces.
