2020-21 Parking Permits
For the 2020-21 Academic year, UNO Parking Permits will look different. All Faculty, Staff, Student and Resident permits will be valid in any faculty, staff or student surface or garage lot in "general-use" spaces only. Please note, resident lots, visitor lots and Park Omaha Two-Hour lots are excluded and will be enforced. Reserved, ADA, motorcycle, carpool, compact, visitor, ev charging and loading zone spaces will be enforced.
Where can visitors park?
Welcome to UNO. For short visits, daily/hourly pay-to-park options are available. For longer visits, you can find permit options on the permit page. Visitor parking options can be found on the visitors page. Contact Parking Services at 402.554.PARK (7275) or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
What is a virtual permit, and how is it used?
A virtual permit is purchased electronically and linked to selected license plate(s) registered on a MavPark account. Once purchased, the vehicle's plate is now the purchased permit. A License Plate Recognition system will then recognize the vehicle’s plate as valid to park in the permit’s designated areas. Permits are valid for the dates noted at time of purchase.
How can I have multiple vehicles with a virtual permit?
There is no limit to vehicles registered to your general MavPark account, but please note you can ONLY link/attach two (2) vehicles to your active permit. You are able to add/activate a temporary or rental vehicle as one of the two vehicles to your permit within 20 minutes of driving to campus. When you are no longer driving the temporary vehicle, delete it from your account. No more than one vehicle registered to your permit can be on campus at the same time. Steps on how to add a vehicle can be found on the permits page.
How does a spouse/family member park on campus?
If a family member works or needs to be on campus at the same time as you, they will need to purchase their own permit. If a guest, not affiliated with UNO, visits campus they must drive a vehicle not registered on your account. This will avoid two vehicles with one permit on campus, doing this may result in a violation. They can purchase a daily/hourly permit if they need to drive a vehicle on your account.
How do I pay a violation?
UNO faculty, staff, residents, students, and visitors are able to pay violations online.
Do I need to register a new vehicle or license plate?
Your license plate is your permit, so an accurately entered plate is essential to avoid a violation. If you purchase a new car, or your license plate changes, you can update your account online. In-Transit vehicles must contact our office to register the VIN. Once you have the license plate, the account must be updated. Parking Services will not look for VINs if a plate is on the vehicle.
Where can I park on holidays and weekends?
No permit is required in general use spaces on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, and days when campus-wide classes are not in session. This excludes handicap spaces (without a handicap permit), reserved spaces, loading zones, motorcycle areas, carpool spaces, ev charging spaces, compact spaces, visitor lots, driveways, and fire lanes. Fridays also offer permit-free parking in all non-reserved garages, in general use parking spaces.
How do I purchase a daily/hourly permit?
Daily permits are purchased online through MavPark. Daily/hourly permits can also be purchased in the West and Pacific St. Garage at the kiosks or through the Park Omaha App (to park in those garages). Daily/Hourly permits on the App are not available for the East Garage until after 12:30 P.M.
How do I use a garage with no gates?
All you will need is a annual or semester garage virtual permit or a daily/hourly permit. Drive into the garage and find a place to park with an annual or semester permit, you are done once you park. For daily or hourly permits, options are to pay online in advance or pay at a kiosk or the Park Omaha App once you have parked.
What if I have a UNL, UNMC or UNK permit. How does the virtual permit work for these?
Contact Parking Services to register the reciprocal permit, individual's NUID and vehicle information. Lots available to park in with reciprocal permits are: (1) FAC/STAFF: East Garage (Lots U and T), West Garage and Fac/Staff surface lots on Dodge Campus and the Pacific Street Garage and Fac/Staff surface lots on Scott Campus (2) STUDENTS: East Garage (Lots T and V), West Garage and Student surface lots on Dodge Campus and the Pacific Street Garage and Student surface lots on Scott Campus.
How will a UNO virtual permit work at UNL, UNMC or UNK Campuses?
Contact UNO Parking Services to request a physical hangtag permit to display in the vehicle when you travel to the other Nebraska system campuses, if a UNO virutal permit has already been purchased. The permit will be valid with the same dates as the UNO permit.
How do I plan for event parking at UNO?
Contact email@example.com at a minimum of 48 hours prior to any event you are hosting. More information can be found in the UNO Parking Regulations.
Why does it cost to park on UNO's campus?
The revenue from permit sales, fines, and pay to park areas enables the university to build and maintain the parking lots, including costs for snow removal, resurfacing, painting and striping, providing patrols of parking lots and operating the Parking Services Office.
The cost of permits at UNO is well below the price of other universities. In comparison with other peer universities such as University of Denver, University of Missouri–St. Louis, and Wichita State, the price for permits at UNO are lower for students, faculty, and staff. The highest rates at UNO, which are compared to the average of other peer institutions, show that UNO student permits are 44% lower and faculty permits are 48% lower.
