Transportation and Parking Services Notices
Virtual Parking Permits Begin August 16

Starting Wednesday, Aug. 16, annual and term parking permits will be virtual; the vehicle's license plate number is now your parking permit. Verify that your license plate number is listed correctly in your parking account via the myWings portal. License plates will be scanned by tag-recognition cameras, so vehicles need to park "nose in." If there's an empty parking space in front of the one you are pulling into, don't pull forward. Most questions are addressed on the tutorial videopermit info or FAQ for Virtual Permit Program webpages. For further assistance, contact Parking Services.
