  • Parking permits are “virtual.” You will not be issued a permit decal.
  • Students, faculty and staff should pick up a vehicle sticker for their windshield. The sticker is not a parking permit, but allows easy access entering campus. The sticker should be picked up at Public Safety.

  • There are no special parking provisions for students with chronic medical conditions. If you have a chronic medical condition that would not enable you to adhere to the current parking system, we encourage you to apply in your state for a state issued handicap parking permit. This permit, in conjunction with a University of Hartford parking permit, entitles you to park in any clearly marked state handicap parking space on campus.

Faculty and Staff Lots

  • Faculty and Staff parking locations are assigned by Public Safety. 

Vehicles found in violation may be ticketed and/or towed at the owner/operator’s expense. All vehicles parked on University of Hartford property must be registered with the Department of Public Safety before parking.

If you have any questions about parking, please contact the Department of Public Safety at 860.768.7985. The office is located adjacent to parking lot E and is open 24 hours each day.

Payment Options

All fees and outstanding citations must be paid in advance of issuing a permit. You may pay your outstanding bill through the Parking Services Web Portal.  If you have a balance due for outstanding citations, you must pay full price. Discounted pricing starts at 12:01 am on the date stated. When you make your request on line you are PURCHASING the permit at that time and date.

Student Permits

You may apply any parking permit fees to your Bursar Charge Account at time of the permit request in Self-Service. These transactions will be listed on your next billing statement and are subject to the same rules as other transactions on your account. Students may elect to pay online at the time of permit request in Self-Service using a major credit card, debit card, or electronic transfer (ECH).

At any time after the permit has been reserved and is on their Bursar account, students may select the Pay for Permit option from the parking services main menu in Self-Service to pay online with CashNet. Cash and paper check payments may also be made in person at SASC.

Faculty and Staff Permits

Faculty and staff permits must be paid in full online at time of your permit request. Due to Covid-19 concerns, Public Safety Parking Services would like all faculty and staff to purchase their parking online using CashNet. You may pay by electronic check, major credit card, or debit card. Lobby sales require cash or personal check in the exact amount. No change or credit will be issued.

Please note: University funds are not allowed by University Policy for payment of any personal Parking Services transactions. Procurement Services blocks all Pcard activity for any such transactions. All faculty/staff permits are non-refundable.
