While many Salt Lake Community College students face some obstacles during the first few weeks of class, getting a parking pass shouldn’t be one of them.
Now is the time to gain some basic knowledge on parking permits to avoid any unnecessary tickets or confusion when the semester starts.
Where to buy a pass
In addition to the Parking Services office at Taylorsville Redwood Campus, students can buy a parking pass from their campus front desk, ID center or cashier office.
Parking Services also sells some permits through a web portal. Passes bought online can be picked up weekdays from the Parking Services office 24 hours after purchase.
Students need their valid vehicle registration and SLCC ID number to purchase a permit.
Different types of passes
Parking Services offers student permits for a variety of time frames.
An annual pass costs $35 and is valid for the fall, spring and summer semesters. A single semester permit is half the price of an annual pass and is valid through the end of the semester purchased. Students can also purchase a one-day permit for $2.
Parking permits come in the form of a sticker or hanging tag. Two valid vehicle registrations must be provided to receive a hanging tag permit. The hanging tag must be used with one of the registered cars.
Courtesy permits are available for students who bought a pass but need to drive another vehicle to campus. Students who have sticker permits can get two free courtesy permits each semester, while those who have a hanging tag permit need to buy a temporary permit.
Where to park
According to Parking Services, a parking pass is required at every campus except the Meadowbrook Campus or West Valley Center.
Student parking permits are valid for spaces painted with yellow lines; spaces with blue lines are reserved for faculty and staff. Regular parking passes are not valid at any parking meters or visitor parking.
Parking Services provides parking maps to show valid parking areas at each campus.
