Reciprocity Agreement

The University of California campuses offer reciprocity of faculty and staff for parking permits. Each campus has a unique set of circumstances relating to various parking issues (parking spaces available, various rates, access by gate, kiosks, specific designated lots, etc.). Because of these differences the permit holder should contact the campus parking office to arrange reciprocal parking. Contacting the campus before a visit, afford faculty and staff the opportunity to know what to expect ahead of time.

When you arrive at the UC Davis Medical Center campus, contact the parking office to make them aware of your arrival. This will enable the host campus to give appropriate information about available parking and additional access if needed. The individual must present a current, valid parking permit from their home campus as well as a current UC ID in order to be eligible for reciprocal parking. If a different permit has been suggested for use during your visit, you may obtain that permit at no additional cost.

Reciprocity among the UC campuses is for the purpose of expediting the university business for the faculty or staff member at the host campus and is valid for not more than five consecutive days. If an employee from another UC campus is working or teaching for a longer period than five days, they must purchase a permit appropriate to the host campus.

Note: Student permits do not have reciprocity. Students from other UC campuses must purchase parking at each individual campus according to the availability, rate, etc. for that campus.
