Faculty/Staff or Students
Faculty/staff and students may only purchase one valid semester or annual permit per individual.
A vehicle can only be registered to one account. This means if you have a vehicle that is sometimes used by a student, and other times used by an employee, you will need to decide which permit to associate that vehicle to, and only park in a space where that permit is valid.
Permits are sold on MavPARK. To purchase a permit, you will need your NetID and password (same as your Canvas or email login) and the make, model, color, and license plate number of the vehicle(s).
Plate Linking Instructions
You can associate license plates at the time of the permit sale, or later manage plates linked to your permit.
- On the MavPark home page, click on "Affiliated Login"
- Enter NetID and Password
- Click on "Manage Your Permits"
- Click on your current permit
From this screen, you can view vehicles currently linked to your permit as well as add or delete vehicles from your permit.
To ADD a vehicle:
Click on the "Add Vehicles to Permit" box at bottom of page.
- If the vehicle is already listed, check the box next to it and click "Add Selected Vehicle"
- If not listed, click "Add new vehicle" and input the requested information.
- Click "next" and the vehicle will be added to the list
Note: If you are trying to update a vehicle, you will be unable to edit. You will add a new vehicle and then delete the old vehicle.
If you do not have plates, please contact our office to enter the last 8 digits of your VIN.

There are no time restrictions to this permit. If All-Access Permit is purchased, no University Business Dash permit will be valid.
Faculty/staff who retire from UNO may request a virtual surface permit, free of charge. Each July, retirees will receive a postcard from Parking Services with instructions on how to request the free permit. If a retiree returns to work for UNO, these permits can be used as long as the FTE is .49 or less.
The following permit options are available for part-time faculty/staff (less than .49 FTE):
- MavRide - Ride all Metro bus routes for free

Part-time faculty/staff that purchase an annual permit but only need it for one semester or an amount of consecutive months less than one year, can return it for a prorated refund of the unused time remaining on the permit.
- All persons with a state-issued handicap permit must register their ADA card with Parking Services and purchase a valid UNO virtual parking permit. UNO-issued handicap permits will only be issued if the individual has or purchases a current UNO parking permit and presents a doctor's request with an end-date on it. Fees may be applicable.
- Vehicles bearing handicap permits may park in any space designated for handicap parking. If no handicap space is available, vehicles bearing handicap permits may park in any faculty/staff or student lot where the space is not specifically reserved or assigned.
- Individuals with short-term handicap parking needs should contact Parking Services.
- NOTE: If the ADA permit is not registered to you, you are legally unable to use that permit. It will not be registered to your account. If you are found using an ADA permit not issued to you, you will be issued a first, second or third offense Unauthorized Handicap Violation.
The Pacific St. Garage and West Garage are available for daily/hourly parking with the ParkOmaha app or kiosks. ParkOmaha zone numbers are posted at eligible locations. To end your parking early on the App, just tap the "end parking" button on your session, and you will be charged only what time you used.
