Game Day Parking

All permits available for purchase

Parking permit sales for the 2014-2015 academic year are underway. Click on the “Purchase Permit” link on the upper right side of this page. Most permits are valid from Aug. 15, 2014, to May 15, 2014. Permits may be paid by credit card or charged to your bursar’s account. For faculty and staff, payment may be made through payroll deduction. After purchase, permits can be mailed to a home address or picked up at OU Parking Services, 1107 Elm Ave. in Stubbeman Place.

Rate increases will help fund more parking

Parking permit rates will increase in steps over the next five years to help finance at least two multi-story parking structures on campus. Housing and commuter student rates will go from $195 to $215 this academic year. For faculty and staff, rates will increase from $222 to $244 for the calendar year, August 2014 to August 2015. For more information on the parking permit rate increase, click here (PDF).

Single-day permits are available

Students, faculty and staff now can purchase single-day parking permits for those days when it's just too cold or inconvenient to walk or ride. Permits may be purchased in quantities of one to 10 for $3.50 each and are valid for the date scratched off. Faculty/staff permits can be used in faculty/staff lots. Student permits can be used in any student-permitted lot. Either permit is valid in multi-purpose lots.

Find the hot spots before you arrive

It's important to familiarize yourself with campus parking lots and garages. Certain parking areas are reserved for students who live on campus, others for students who live off campus, some for faculty and staff, and others for visitors.

LEFE parking spaces now available

Parking & Transportation Services is committed to promoting university sustainability initiatives. Three Partners Place and Four Partners Place have received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. As one of many strategies to this certification, parking spaces have been dedicated Low Emission, Fuel-Efficient (LEFE). With proper documentation, you are eligible to park your LEFE-certified vehicle in these spaces.


Only vehicles that had a green score of 45 and above listed on the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) may park in the university’s LEFE parking spaces. Please note that we do not have any influence on which cars make the list. Non-LEFE vehicles parked in these special spaces will be cited. Valid parking permits are required to park in any LEFE vehicle parking spaces on campus.
