[Published: Aug. 22, 2019]

Stanford's virtual parking permit system allows customers to purchase permits with an expiration date far into the future. If you did so, you will not need to take action to extend your permit as we approach the new fiscal year. If, however, you selected an expiration date at the end of this fiscal or academic year, your permit may have expired or may be expiring as of Aug. 31, 2019.

Not sure when your permit expires? Go to 'My Account,' and click 'Permits' to view the dates your permit is valid. If no permit is displayed, your permit has already expired.

For those whose permits are about to expire

Parking permits for the new fiscal year are now available for purchase.

  • Please be sure to purchase or extend your parking permit to avoid a citation.
  • If you prefer not to renew each new fiscal year, please select an expiration date as far into the future as you like.
  • If you are not employed directly by Stanford University or one of the hospitals, you will need to apply for sponsorship to purchase a permit or join the Commute Club. Those who already have an account can log in and request an extension or update to their sponsorship for a total duration of up to six months.  
  • Hospital employees interested in the 500P Garage will receive information in messages from Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children's Health in the coming week.
