Parking on Campus

Revised: 11/13/2018

All students, faculty and staff members, and all other persons on University property must abide by University parking regulations.

Parking Regulations and Maps

The complete listing of Traffic and Parking Regulations is published annually. The regulations and maps of campus parking facilities are available from Parking & Transportation Services (573-882-4568), Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2, or University Police (573-882-7201), 901 Virginia Avenue.

Parking Permits

All persons electing to use MU parking lots or structures during hours restricted for use by holders of paid parking permits are required to obtain the appropriate permit.

Traffic and Parking Regulations

The University of Missouri employs the use of License Plate Recognition (LPR) as the means to manage parking permissions and enforce parking regulations on campus.

Parking permissions are issued virtually, and are based on the license plate number. No decals or hangtags are used to park on campus.

Citations are issued and delivered through email. No paper ticket or envelope will be placed on the vehicle. A “Multiple Violations” notice may be placed under the windshield wiper of a vehicle when the vehicle has reached three violations that have not been paid or there is no connection to the vehicle and/or driver in the parking management system.

Accessible Parking

All applicants requesting accessible parking are required to present a state-issued disabled placard or proof of a disabled vehicle license plate. All normal university parking fees apply.

To obtain accessible parking, bring the Department of Revenue form that references the license plate or placard number to the Parking Office from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, in Turner Avenue Parking Structure, Level 2.

  • Your state-issued placard must be properly displayed at all times and the additional parking permission granted by Parking & Transportation must be completed to avoid a citation or towing.
  • Vehicles that have the proper accessible parking identification are authorized to use any non-reserved accessible parking space on campus; or, if none are open, any regular parking space.
  • Metered spaces in University parking structures and lots occupied by vehicles displaying the proper accessible identification require payment.

If you need a state-issued disabled license plate or placard your physician must complete Form 1776. Take the completed form to a Missouri Department of Revenue office to acquire the state tag. Parking will add a temporary accessible parking permission to your vehicle’s license plate for a maximum of two weeks to allow time to get a state-issued placard.

Dual Parking Permits

If you need access to additional parking beyond your assigned parking structure or lot for your job duties, please fill out and return the Application for Additional Parking Lot Access.

Temporary Parking Permits

Temporary parking permits are available for short periods of time. Contact Parking & Transportation Services (882-4568), Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2.

Retiree Permits

Retiree permits are available to University employees who have retired from University employment. Contact Parking & Transportation Services (882-4568), Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2.

Termination of Permit

All parking permits have an expiration date of August 31.

  • If you terminate your employment or take a leave of absence, it is necessary for you to return the hangtag or sticker and cancel your payroll deduction at Parking & Transportation Services, Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2.

Metered Parking Spaces

Drivers parking in a metered space are required to pay, even when parking an official car or a vehicle displaying a parking lot permit.

Official University Vehicles

Drivers of official vehicles are subject to all traffic and parking regulations. Official vehicles are not exempt from parking permit requirements.

Traffic Violations

Traffic violations may be appealed. Contact Parking & Transportation Services (882-4568), Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2.

  • If you are employed by the University and receive a traffic violation and do not pay or appeal it, the fee will be deducted from your salary.
  • After three violations, which are not paid nor are in the appeal process, the vehicle’s license number is placed on a tow list.
  • Parking and Transportation Services is authorized to assess an administrative fee on any vehicle identified as one which has received an excess of five prior violations, paid or unpaid, during an academic year. Such administrative fee shall be recommended by the committee annually, subject to approval of Chancellor.

Parking Lot Repairs

Parking lots or structures in need of repair should be reported to Parking & Transportation Services (882-4568), Turner Avenue Garage, Level 2.
