CU Reciprocal Parking Agreement


University of Colorado faculty and staff who have a valid full time parking permit may take advantage of this reciprocal parking agreement. Valid parking permits include ones issued by UCB, UCCS, CU Denver and Auraria. This agreement applies only for travel related to the performance of official university business. You must display in your car window the official parking permit that was issued to you from your home campus. The CU reciprocal parking arrangement is valid for specific designated parking lots only and availability is based on "first-come, first-served."

Since ID badges are used to access the lots on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, faculty and staff who use reciprocal parking on other campuses need to visit the parking office on the first floor of the Fitzsimons Building to request a reciprocal parking permit. Those full time faculty and staff who participate in the University of Colorado Denver or CU Anschutz Medical Campus parking program may do so at no additional cost for the reciprocal permit. ID badges are not considered to be a valid reciprocal parking permit.
