Parking and Transit Services has continued to work with campus leaders on the operational plan for parking on campus this upcoming academic year.
Parking guidelines on campus will be less restrictive this year to reflect the de-densified nature of campus operations due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic and the resulting increase in available parking spaces for students, faculty, staff and guests.
Please see below for what has changed for the 2020-2021 academic year:
- Violation Waiver Policy
- Pay-to-Park Options
- Perks from Parking
- Shuttle Routes
- Reminder: Vehicle Per Permit Limit
- Alumni Center Lot Change

For 2020-21, Parking Services will have a one-time eligible waiver for the academic year for permit holders that can be applied to one violation of up to $50 or less. Two other violation changes effective Monday, August 24, will be:
- A removal of the $50 East Garage violation, and;
- A reduction of the Compact Car violation to $50 from $100.
Lots A, C and M (7 stalls) are now open for all vehicles to use, including faculty/staff and students. The Park Omaha App must be used; UNO permits are not valid to park in these spaces. If you have UNO permit, you must still pay at these locations.
All other hourly/daily permit locations/information can be found on the Parking Services website.
Parking Services is introducing “Perks from Parking” for students during the 2020-21 academic year. This includes two 'perks' as a new way for our office to say "thanks" to the members of our campus community who utilize our services throughout the year:
- Parking Services will hold a "permit giveaway" where two students, residents, or GTAs will win a free annual permit, or, if a permit is already purchased, be reimbursed for the cost. To be eligible, the individual must complete and submit a parking quiz with 100% accuracy. Quiz details will be announced closer to the start of classes.
- Each week one customer who has purchased a daily permit from a garage kiosk will get their parking fee waived for the day and be notified via UNO email. Selected individuals must not have any outstanding parking fines with Parking Services and must be in 100% financial good standing with UNO’s Cashiering and Student Accounts area to qualify.
Shuttles will operate during the upcoming academic year. Routes that will be available are the Scott Resident (Orange) route, ADA-VIP route, and the Newman Center (Pink) route. Please note these routes will run with limited shuttles, therefore plan on enough time to get between campuses. Shuttles will follow safety guidelines and social distancing measures. Please refer to signage at shuttle stops and on the shuttles for details.
Exact routes and times of operation will be found on the Parking Services website as we get closer to August 24.
Vehicle registration linked to your permit will be limited to two vehicles ONLY. Please note that two (2) vehicles sharing one (1) permit, cannot be on campus at the same time (within the same hour); otherwise, a $100 violation will be incurred.
Effective August 24, the Thompson Alumni Center Lot X will be a Visitor Only Lot. No UNO permits will be valid in this lot at any time. The Alumni Center will issue the required permit needed when attending an event at that location.
