How to Purchase a Permit

Students should purchase their parking permits online prior to arriving on campus. UMass sold out of student parking permits in 21-22 and almost sold out for the 22-23 permit year. If you choose to purchase your permit in person at our office, please make sure to bring your vehicle registration and photo ID. Visit the Parking Services main office to buy a permit. we expect to sell out of student parking permits before the start of the semester.  Please do not bring a vehicle to campus if you have not procured a permit prior to the start of the Fall semester
