UMass Dartmouth is a decal-less parking campus. Your license plate will serve as your parking permit. All vehicles coming on campus must be registered and a permit must be purchased. Permits will be issued based on campus designation (Resident location or commuter). Permits are assigned to specific lots. Parking designation map can be found
Parking Permits and Enforcement
All vehicles on campus must have a valid registration and parking permit and be parked in the correct lot designation to avoid being ticketed or towed. Ticketing occurs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Registering your vehicle and getting your parking permit
Have your license plate and vehicle information available—you will need it to complete your permit registration. Please note that securing your permit is a two-step process: registering your vehicle and attaching a permit to it.

Step 1: Register your vehicle
- Register your vehicle by entering your license plate number and vehicle information in the 'add a vehicle' field
- You may register up to two vehicles under this permit. However, you may only have one of these vehicles on campus at a time.
Step 2: Attach your student permit to your vehicle
- Click ‘Get permits’ and follow the prompts to assign a permit to your vehicle. Once you have completed this step, you will receive a confirmation email.
