Temporary Permits

Temporary Parking Permits

All members of UMass Lowell must obtain a hang-tag if bringing a temporary, loaner or rental vehicle onto campus. It is the driver's responsibility to ensure this is obtained prior to arriving on campus to ensure a citation is not issued.

Everyone is allotted ten (10) business days of temporary passes at no charge; no permits can be issued until all citations are paid or appealed. If you require parking after you have exhausted your temporary options, you will be required to order a decal.

Temporary passes can only be ordered for yourself and cannot be transferred. Temporary permits can only be ordered for vehicles owned/leased/rented by the requester or someone from the same household. Ordering of temporary passes for vehicles belonging to another student, faculty or staff member is strictly prohibited.

Temporary permits cannot be ordered for guests or visitors. For more information about visitor parking please visit the visitor parking site.

Obtaining a Temporary Pass


The online ordering system allows you to order a temporary pass only valid for one day from the comfort of your home, office or residence hall. We suggest that you utilize this for emergency situations or if you will be arriving to campus before our office is open.

1. Log onto the temporary parking pass ordering site with your UMass Lowell e-mail credentials.

2. Enter the required vehicle information from your vehicle registration. Rental vehicles have most information on the key tag.

3. Submit your request and print the pass which must be displayed on your dashboard.

At the Office

If you need a longer term accommodation for parking, such as your primary vehicle being serviced, we recommend you visit our office to get a temporary hang tag. We may issue you hang tags one week at a time. Please bring your vehicle registration if you have not previously registered the vehicle with our office.
