Resident students are considered all non-freshmen who reside on the Coral Gables campus of the University as well as University Village residents. First-year resident students [students residing on the Coral Gables campus who are attending college on a full-time basis for the first time] are restricted from purchasing a parking permit to park a vehicle on the University of Miami’s Coral Gables campus. This policy applies to first year students living in University of Miami student housing on the Coral Gables campus. Non-freshman resident students are eligible to purchase Blue Zone Permits.

All vehicles on campus must be registered with this department and are required to display a current and valid parking permit. Eight colors identify parking lots on campus: Purple, Red, White, Pink, Yellow, Green, Grey and Blue. Parking permits are printed with the appropriate color on the front and the corresponding color on the reverse side (facing the driver) for easy orientation on campus. Park vehicles in designated spaces within lots where the entrance signage includes the color designator printed on your parking permit.

Blue Annual and Blue Resident Fall permits can be used in lots with the color Blue at the entrance. These lots are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as they are located in close proximity to the residence halls.

Resident students must apply for a parking permit via the following link Apply for UM Parking Permit. During the official annual sign-up process in July an e-mail will be sent to all students with this link and the dates on which each group will be eligible to apply. Once on, the system will advise you which zones you are eligible for and are available for application. For eligible Resident and UV Resident students, only Blue Zone(Resident), or UV zone will show up as viable options. All permits for the University population will be mailed to the mailing address provided via the online application. Once mailed, the permit is valid and the responsibility of the applicant.

At the University of Miami, we are committed to serving you. If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions, please contact us, and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
