What is a virtual permit and how does it work?
A virtual permit means that no physical permit/hang tag is required. Instead, your license plate is registered in the system and serves as your credential. License plate recognition (LPR) technology scans your plate to verify that you are credentialed to park in the lot. Vehicles must park with license plate visible from the travel lane of the space.
Why can’t I back in or pull-through park?
You must have a valid front license plate to back in or pull-through park. Otherwise, back-in or pull through parking is not allowed. LPR technology must be able to read your plate from the travel lane of the parking space to verify your registered plate.
Do I still use my UNC One Card for gate access?
Yes, for gated access lots, UNC One Card will continue to be used.
When will I receive my permit?
Parking permits are virtual, so there is no physical permit. Instead, your license plate is your permit. Once you have registered your license plate in your Online Services account and purchased a permit, you have parking privileges.
What if I drive multiple vehicles or get a new license plate?
You can register multiple and update vehicle license plates online. Only one vehicle can be on campus at a time associated with the permit. Any license plate registered to your account is your responsibility when parking on campus.
If I register more than one vehicle, does that mean I can park all of them on campus?
No, you may only park one vehicle on campus at one time with that paid virtual permit. Individuals who park more than one vehicle on campus at the same time must purchase a paid parking permit or session for the additional vehicle(s).
