Virtual parking permits for new permit purchases 

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.  With virtual permits, you will NOT need to come to Parking Services office to pick up your permit or wait for a physical permit to arrive in the mail. The license plate registered when purchasing your parking session will become your virtual parking permit, and your permit will be valid as soon as the first effective date of your permit. As each vehicle’s license plate is used as your parking permit, license plates must be registered precisely to avoid being issued a citation. Errors in license plate registration are the responsibility of the registrant and will cause the issuance of a violation. You can register up to three vehicles on your permit; however, only one vehicle is allowed on campus at a timeIf more than one vehicle found on campus without the purchase of additional permit, both vehicles will be cited for Misuse of Parking Permit.  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.  For additional information visit SJSU Virtual Permit FAQ.
