Faculty & Staff Permits

New to campus?

Welcome to Princeton!

Start here by checking out our New Employee Guide for tips for getting to and getting around campus.

Where can I park?

Under the University's virtual parking system, your license plate is your permit. Faculty and staff are welcome to register up to five vehicles, but only one vehicle may be parked on campus at any time. Permits are issued for a campus parking zone and renewed once a year.

University parking zones consist of one or more parking facilities, anchored around a University parking garage. Instead of being valid for a single lot and an overflow location, your parking permit will automatically be valid for any parking facility in your assigned zone.
Zones are automatically assigned during the parking permit activation process. Click to view all zone assignments by building.

  • Red Zone: Lots P11, P19, P20, P24, P27, P28, P39, Theater Drive (formerly West) Garage. Red Zone permit holders may also park in Stadium Drive Garage and the Blue Zone.  

  • Purple Zone: Lots P1, P2, P10, P13, Prospect Avenue (formerly North) Garage. Purple Zone permit holders may also park in Stadium Drive Garage and the Blue Zone.

  • Green Zone: Stadium Drive Garage and Broadmead Street between Western Way and Faculty Road. Green Zone permit holders may also park in the Blue Zone.  

  • Blue Zone: Off-campus facilities, including Lot P30, P31, P32, P34, P40, P41, P42, and P43. Blue Zone permit holders may also park in the Red and Green Zones.
