Permit Selection

Permits can be purchased and renewed online through My Parking Profile. To select the permit you want to purchase or renew:

  1. Select the Cars section/tab.
  2. Select the permit to purchase/renew by clicking the Buy [permit type] button. Please be aware that multiple permits will appear. Verify you selected the correct permit before completing purchase.

There is no permit to display (unless you are a Manor or Trinity Garage permit holder)Your license plate registration will be used to determine permit status.

If your permit includes garage access, you will be able to obtain your 2024-25 QR code starting August 14. The new permit becomes valid on August 21, 2024.

M Permit Renewals

If you have an M permit (motorcycle/moped) in addition to a C, C+, D, D+, or S car permit, please renew your car permit first. Once your car permit has been renewed, your M permit for the 2024-25 year can be renewed at no cost beginning August 6, 2024.

Manor (MAG) and Trinity Garage (TRG) Permits

Your permit will be mailed to you. To ensure it is mailed to the correct address, go to My Parking Profile:

  1. Select the Profile section/tab.
  2. Under the Addresses section, make sure the address you would like your permit mailed to is listed as the primary. You will need to be able to receive your permit at this address in mid-August.

After completing your purchase, you should receive your new permit at the address of your choice in mid-August. The new permit becomes valid on August 21, 2024.

Vehicle Registration

To check your license plate registrations through My Parking Profile:

  1. Select the orange Parking Portal 
  2. Log onto the new site
  3. Select VEHICLES from the top menu.
  4. Add, Edit or remove the car (or motorcycle, or bicycle) as necessary.

You may register up to three vehicles, but only one registered plate can be parked on campus at any given time. Failure to register your plate may result in citations.

If You Have Citations

You will not be able to renew your permit until all outstanding citations are paid. You can access citations attached to your record as well as pay for them through My Parking Profile.

Payment Options

Payments can be made with American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa. There is no service charge for using this option. You may also elect to add your permit to your What I Owe bill, which allows for payment by credit card, eCheck, and electronic funds transfer (EFT). If you use What I Owe as a payment method, you must pay the full parking balance before the start of the fall semester. Failure to pay may result in forfeiture of the permit, a financial bar, or both.

Transfer Requests

S permit holders may submit a transfer request by emailing garages@utexas.edu after payment has been received.

The request must include:

  • Your name
  • UT EID
  • Permit type (S)
  • Current garage
  • Garage to which you would like to be considered for transfer
    • You may request transfer to as many as two locations
    • S permit holders may request a transfer to any garage on campus other than the Conference Center Garage (CCG) or Rowling Hall Garage (RHG)
