Fall 2015 Commuter Student Parking Permit Sales


On line Student Commuter Parking Permits went on sale at 10:AM on Tuesday, August 11, 2015.    Early into the sale, our software system experienced technical difficulties.  We worked with our vendor for three days trying to resolve the problem; finally on Thursday, August 13th the system was operational.  In the meantime we recognize that we didn't meet your expectations and this did not make for an overall positive experience.  

We know that as a commuter student you count on us to provide you with a hassle-free and reliable on line system to purchase your student commuter permit and we are sorry for your inconvenience.   

We only had 195 student commuter permits to sell and due to the unprecedented  demand, the permits sold out in less than thirty minutes.  While we sincerely apologize if you were unable to purchase a Student Commuter Permit for the Fall Term, we do have some options available for you.

  • Waitlist:  Please contact the Parking Office at 412-624-4034 and select option 5 to speak with a Customer Service Representative.  They will take your name and phone number, and if a permit becomes available at any time during the Fall Term, a representative from the Parking Office will contact you.

  • Port Authority:  You can use your current University of Pittsburgh Identification Card and ride a Port Authority bus. 

  • Non-University Parking Options:  You can look on parking websites such as: Parkopedia, and Best Parking to locate an available parking space in and around the surrounding Oakland area.  

The University of Pittsburgh Parking Services Office does our best to service the University Community with the resources we have available.   We sincerely regret that we fell short of our goal in this instance.
