Visitors may purchase a Day Pass online and park in the campus’ Yellow lots. Day Passes may be purchased by visitors, staff, students, guests, or faculty for $5 per day.

Permit Parking

While anyone can buy a Day Pass online and park in any of the campus’ Yellow lots, employees, faculty, or students may find it cost-effective to purchase one-semester or two-semester parking permits online or at the campus’ parking services building. Upon purchase, your license plate becomes your permit during the semester, so no physical permit is required.

For more information about parking permits, student parking, employee parking, and motorcycle and scooter parking, visit the UVU website.

Tips for Parking at UVU

In the morning, lots closer to campus buildings fill up faster, including Lots L3, L5, L6, L8, L14, M21, and M25. Plan well in advance when parking at these spots.

If the above are sold out, those visiting may consider parking in lots located a bit farther, including L9, L10, or M29.

Transportation Options

UTA bus lines 805, 807, 822, 830x, and 862 drop by UVU Station, an 8-minute walk from the campus. See schedules, stops, and fares at the UTA website. Students and faculty at UVU are eligible for free UTA passes with their UVU ID cards.

Alternatively, visitors may ride the UTA Frontrunner to Orem Central Station at UVU West Campus.
