Parking permits are required for visitors and the University of Idaho Parking Regulations are enforced at all times. Visitor permits can be purchased at the Parking Office located in the Intermodal Transit Center on the corner of Sweet Avenue and Railroad Street (1006 Railroad Street). The Parking Office is open Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. during the academic year, and until 4:30 p.m. during academic breaks.
Visitor permits are only to be used by visitors to the University of Idaho. Visitors are considered to be anyone who is not a current faculty/staff member, or student at the University of Idaho campus in Moscow. Moscow campus faculty, staff and students are NOT eligible for Visitor permits. Visitor permits are valid in any regular space in any colored lot. Visitor permits are also valid in spaces posted as “Reserved, Visitor Permit Required”. These spaces are located throughout campus and are noted on the campus parking map.
Visitor permits are NOT valid in the following areas:
- Timed spaces
- Reserved spaces (designated by signage)
- Service or delivery spaces
- Disability spaces (except when a state-issued Disability permit is also displayed)
- Anywhere on the campus walkway system

University of Idaho departments who host visitors have the option of using budget numbers to purchase Scratch-Off Visitor permits in advance for individuals who are on campus to visit a specific department. Scratch-off Visitor permits are available for purchase only by departments for this purpose. A Visitor Permit Request Form must be submitted to the Parking Office at least two weeks prior to the date permits or services are needed. Visitor permits can also be picked up at the Parking Office anytime between 7:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
In the event that a visitor receives a parking citation, Parking and Transportation Services will allow a department to provide a budget number to cover the fee associated with the citation. This is only allowed for citations received by an individual who was visiting campus and is NOT a faculty member, staff member or student at the University of Idaho. Vehicles displaying Visitor permits are required to comply with university parking regulations, as well as with city ordinances and state laws. Any citations received must be paid or appealed within 15 days from the date the citation was issued. See Section N for more on the appeal process.
