If you need to park on campus on a regular basis, a permit offers significant savings on daily parking rates. Permit rates are an average of $6.18 per working day; daily parking in one of Penn’s lots or garages average $12 a day. 

University faculty and staff have the option to pay their parking fees through automatic payroll deduction. With this option, you will be automatically enrolled in the Penn Commuter Choice program, which allows you to deduct parking fees on a pre-tax basis.

If you are currently a permit holder and have any changes to your status—including a new car, license plate, address, telephone number, or new position—it is important to contact the Parking Office with this information. Please e-mail the office at parking@pobox.upenn.edu or call (215) 898-8667.

Coming soon: based on permit holder feedback, Parking is currently automating this process so that you will be able to make these updates via an online website at U@Penn. Please look out for more details from the Parking Office in your home mailbox.
