Faculty and Staff Permits

Purchase a Permit

Faculty and staff can purchase parking permits online.You will need your PODS ID and password to login. A vehicle must be registered with the University before parking on campus or it must be parked in a paid space. To register your vehicle and purchase a permit, log into your account and follow the instructions.

TAPS has integrated a new parking software that utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR). LPR is a plate-recognition technology that associates parking permits to a license plate and not a decal or hangtag.

After purchasing a permit online a confirmation will be emailed. Once the confirmation is received the permit is active. This software also allows you to update your vehicle information and add additional vehicles to your permit from your online account. Only one vehicle associated with a permit may be on campus at a time.

Permit Display

TAPS has integrated a new parking software that utilizes License Plate Recognition (LPR). LPR, is a plate-recognition technology that associates parking permits to a license plate and not a sticker decal or hangtag.

License plates must be visible from the drive lane for LPR to work properly. If you are from a state that does not require a front license plate, for example Pennsylvania, vehicles must be pulled into a space nose first. A one time warning will be issued for this offense.
