Effective July 1, 2019, Parking Services at San Jose State University will start using virtual permits for students, MPP’s, Confidential employees, Auxiliary employees, Emeritus faculties, visitors, contractors, and vendors. 

Virtual permits allow you to park in your designated area without being required to display a physical permit.  The license plate registered when purchasing your parking session will become your virtual parking permit. You can register up to three vehicles on your permit. Only one vehicle is allowed on campus at a time.  Paid parking session is required at all times when parking on campus. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  License Plate Recognition (LPR) verifies parking session in all garages and lots.  The program is intended solely to be used for management of parking facilities.  For more information, please visit Virtual Permit FAQ page.
