Parking and Access

Parking Services

Any motor vehicle parked on University property, other than in paid meter spaces must display a valid University of Tennessee parking permit. The type of permit indicates the areas where the vehicle may be parked. Use of a motor vehicle on University of Tennessee property is a privilege, not a right, and is made available only under the policies established in the University Rules and Parking Regulations currently in effect.
