Payment must be made on Park Omaha App. A UNO permit is not valid in these areas, therefore use of this areas requires payment for all vehicles on the app. Outside of these hours, these spaces are available to anyone free of charge.
General use spaces are enforced 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. (M-TH) and 7 A.M. to 5 P.M. (F). A valid permit is required during these times. After 2:30 P.M. all valid permits are able to park in general use spaces in all garages and faculty/staff and student lots.
No permit is required on Saturdays, Sundays, holidays and days when campus-wide University classes are not in session.

Once an individual has been issued five (5) or more violations in an academic year, they have become a nuisance parker. They will be notified that all violations and/or permit fees must be paid within two weeks to avoid being towed from campus. After two weeks, they will be notified again they are now on the tow list and will remain until all outstanding violations and permit fees are paid. Only paying a portion of the outstanding parking fees/fines will not remove them from the tow list. This includes any new tickets that are received before the full balance is paid.
Vehicle can be towed, if on the tow list, each time it is parked on campus if there is still an outstanding balance of parking fees/fines. If the owner/driver of the vehicle shows up once the tow truck has arrived, they may be required to pay for all or a portion of the tow bill to the tow company.
Individuals who stop payment on checks, write non-sufficient funds checks, or dispute credit card charges on permit fees or fines will automatically be deemed a nuisance violator and risk being banned from parking on campus for six (6) months.
If individual continues to get tickets after paying balance and being removed from the tow list. They will be put back on the tow list and may be banned from parking on campus for six (6) months.
Vehicles towed for outstanding parking balances are towed by Young's Towing at 3207 S.67th St., Omaha, NE 402.393.7900.
