Retiree and Emeriti Enhanced Parking Program


If you are a lifetime member or a current annual dues paying member of the UCRRA or the UCREA, you can obtain a free enhanced parking permit as part of your membership.

The enhanced parking permit will allow you to park on campus in the Red spaces in lots 6, 13, and 24, the Blue spaces in lot 1, and in any non-resident parking spot in the Bannockburn parking lot.  You can obtain your new enhanced Retiree and Emeriti  Parking Permit from Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) office. 

Due to COVID-19, the TAPS office is managing business online and will continue to have a staff membership answering emails and phone calls Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. You may contact TAPS by email at or by phone at (951) 827-8277 to acquire your red lot parking pass. Mention your name and that you are a member of the UCR Retirees' or Emeriti Association, they will then look you up on the membership list to confirm. For more information on TAPS operations during COVID-19, visit the TAPS webpage at 

Retirees or Emeriti on a recall appointment are not eligible to receive the enhanced parking permit.  TAPS staff will also provide maps to show you the exact location of retiree parking lots and spaces.
