COVID-19 parking and transit updates
Beginning fall semester 2021, Transportation Services transitions to virtual permit parking.
Cameras and license plate recognition software will be used to verify parking permissions. Your license plate serves as your permit, rather than a hangtag.
Customers with virtual permits must register their license plate, pay for parking permissions, and display their license plate toward the driving aisle.
The following is the customer priority order, beginning with number 1 as the highest priority:
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, 2021
(24 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
August 5, 2022,
by logging in to their My Account.
Transportation Services will not assign a lot the customer did not choose.
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 follow the permit return process to request the new permit.
Once completed, the previous permit will be cancelled and the new permit will be activated.
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.
To Purchase Online
To Purchase In Person
Bring a picture ID into our office at Polo Rd. Building, Suite 350.
If the permit being purchased is for a gated lot or a garage, faculty/staff may stop by our office to request a transponder to open the gates hands-free.
Our office hours are 8am–5pm, Monday through Friday. Temporary parking
(up to 30 minutes) is located between Polo Rd. Building and the Emerging Technologies Building.
Additional 30 minute spaces can be found in the southwest corner of Lot 50.
Pay parking is available in the University Center Garage attached to the Koldus Building.
Texas A&M has implemented new technology that requires adding the license plate number of the vehicle being registered to park on campus.
Your license plate is your permit for your parking assignment.
Please ensure you correctly enter the license plate of the primary vehicle you will be using on campus.
Staff/faculty may have up to three license plates connected to their permit. Students may have one license plate connected to their permit.
