Purchase a Parking Permit
P&TS has launched a new virtual permit system. Commuters, residents, and visitors can purchase virtual parking permits by entering the license plate information for vehicles they plan to park on campus. Departments will NOT use the virtual parking system until Sept. 1. Until then, departments need to come to the P&TS office to purchase physical parking permits.
If you are a visitor, you can use Parkmobile or a pay station in visitor parking areas, or purchase all-day visitor parking from our online portal. Tour groups must reserve parking spaces in advance.
If you are commuting to Stanford, you have a number of options for selecting and paying for parking. Before you decide, consider sustainable commute options and the many incentives Stanford offers.
If you are a resident student, you can purchase a resident permit, but you cannot purchase a commuter permit. With the many transportation resources on campus, consider going car-free.
Visitors can use Parkmobile or a visitor pay machine to park at the main campus.
Our office can work with campus event planners to reserve event parking. When scheduling events, try to avoid peak times (arrivals from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and departures from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.).
All campus tours and visits that are not organized by Stanford must reserve a tour access time slot.
Departments can find parking and additional resources for their business needs.
