Assignment Process

What are the permit assignment priorities? The following is the customer priority order, beginning with number 1 as the highest priority:
  1. Current permit holders requesting to be assigned to the SAME LOT by completing web registration by July 5, 2017.
    NOTE: Non-resident undergraduate students with a West Campus Resident permit, Northside Garage, Southside Garage, Lot 30, Lot 40, Lot 99 or Lot 122 permits ARE NOT eligible to renew these permits. ( Lot 99 permits will be restricted to residents of the Gardens ONLY.)
  2. Current permit holders who are displaced due to permanent lot closure.
  3. Faculty and Staff who are:
    • Current permit holders who request to be assigned a different lot and complete registration by July 5, 2017 or who have a mid-year office relocation mandated by the University. Assignments made based on months of service with the University and space availability. Inserting customers mandated to move office locations mid-year into wait lists based on their months of service with the university will cause other customers' positions on the lists to fluctuate during the permit year.
    • Non-permit holders who complete registration by July 5, 2017. Assignments made based on months of service with the University and space availability
  4. Resident students who complete registration before July 5, 2017 will be given priority in Lots 30, Lot 40, Lot 99, Lot 122, Northside Garage, Southside Garage and West Campus Garage. Cain Garage is not available to Resident students.
  5. Graduate students who are:
    • Current permit holders who request to be assigned a different lot and complete registration by July 5, 2017. Assignments made based on current classification and space availability
    • Non-permit holders who complete registration by July 5, 2017. Assignments made based on current classification and space availability
  6. Undergraduate students who are:
    • Current permit holders who request to be assigned a different lot and complete registration by July 5, 2017. Assignments made based on current classification and space availability
    • Non-permit holders who complete registration by July 5, 2017. Assignments made based on current classification and space availability
  7. Students who complete registration after July 5, 2017. Assignments based on first-come, first-served
    NOTE: Resident Students who complete registration after July 5, 2017, will be given priority above non-resident students in Lot 99 and West Campus Garage.

Students who are current permit holders and have not completed enough hours to register as a sophomore will be in a higher priority category than incoming freshmen who do not have a permit because of their status as a "renewal" customer. Renewals have a higher priority than new requests. The only case where this would not be true is if the customer does not currently own a permit.

Students who miss the registration deadline will be assigned a permit on a first-come, first-serve basis. For example, an individual who currently holds a permit and requests to be assigned to the same location, but failed to complete registration until August 1, 2017 (25 days past the deadline) will be assigned a permit along with the applicants in priority group 6. In this case it is unlikely this individual would receive a parking assignment back into their current lot location.

Customers who are assigned to a lot that is not their first choice will be added to a wait list for each lot that was requested but not received. Wait lists are moved weekly and individuals whose names reach the top of the wait list for a lot with a vacancy will be contacted via TAMU email and offered the opportunity to exchange or purchase the new permit available. ALL wait list requests expire at the end of EACH academic year.

Up to six wait list choices are allowed, however, all these choices do not have to be used. Transportation Services STRONGLY ENCOURAGES customers to select only the lots where they want to park. If Transportation Services is unable to assign one of their six preferred options, the customer will have the opportunity to select from remaining parking options Aug. 1, by logging in to their My Account. Transportation Services will not assign a lot the customer did not choose.

What if I need to exchange my current permit before the end of the summer? Students will not need to change to a different permit during the summer months since the summer parking plan allows customers to move to other lots designated on the Summer Map.

Faculty/Staff should bring current permit and a picture ID to a cashier in 108 Koldus to request the new permit. After exchanging permits, the cashier will cancel your previous registration request then renew the new permit.
Why am I not able to select a guaranteed parking option? Due to higher demand and enrollment, we are not able to offer a guaranteed parking option during permit registration. Customers who registered for and did not get awarded a permit will remain on the wait list until we can offer a permit. Customers needing a permit before their wait list offer can be made, should log into their My Account to select from available permits.
