Faculty and Staff

Faculty and Staff

All vehicles parked on campus are required to have a valid UM parking permit and must park head-in only. Parking permits are issued with an assignment to a specific color zone. Park in your assigned color zone where the lots and/or garage entrance sign includes the color matching your parking permit.

Employees located in Gables One Tower can click here for additional information with regards to parking at that location.

For detailed information on the rules and regulations pertaining to parking on campus, refer to the Parking Policies & Procedures. (rev. June 2021). In order to avoid fines, towing, and possible disciplinary action, all vehicles parked on the Coral Gables campus should adhere to the policies. Familiarity with, and attention to, University of Miami’s Moving Parking Policies and Procedures is the most effective way of avoiding a parking citation. Campus parking is strictly enforced 7 days a week, 8 a.m. - 11 p.m.

For Faculty and Staff of the Coral Gables campus, permits are continuous and so if you have a current permit, no further action is required (Employees based at Gables One Tower still need to apply for a parking permit each year and will be sent details of when to do this). You will receive an email that will confirm your color zone assignment and the cost for the upcoming year. For any faculty or staff member without a current permit and wanting to apply for one should use the link at the top of this page to access their parking account. It is recommended that a permit be purchased before July 12th, 2021 when permits go on sale to students. At this time, many of the color zones will sell out. Once in the system, we will advise you which zones are available for purchase.

Six Level 2 EV Charging Stations are available at the Merrick Garage (see map). Be sure to familiarize yourself with the EV Charging Station parking policy.

Participants in the University of Miami’s Public Transportation Benefit Program may not purchase a University of Miami parking permit.
