To qualify for a PH assignment individuals must be employed 50% time or greater by the Carver College of Medicine in a Clinical Department and hold a classification of FT, FS, FQ, FR or FV 1100, 1200 or 1300. FH 16s are excluded from eligibility in this program.

DEO assigns allocated PH permits to faculty based on Clinical unit’s criteria

Selected faculty will secure a PH application from Parking and Transportation website (application), complete and sign application and forward to DEO for signature

DEO (or designee) signs the application and forwards to the Dean’s Office (Assistant Dean for Administration).

Dean’s Office endorses application and forwards to Parking and Transportation for processing

Parking and Transportation will contact the faculty member directly to issue the PH hangtag and cancel any other parking assignments

Use of the PH Permit and Access Card

The PH proximity access card will allow 24/7 access to all four facilities, but does not guarantee space. If the ramp is full, permit-holder must enter a different facility

Permit must be displayed at all times when used within any UI parking facility. Failure to display the hangtag will result in a $30 parking violation when parked within any Hospital Ramp.

Individuals are responsible for all parking violations received

Always park in an appropriate designated parking space.

The PH permit is intended to support the designated faculty member’s clinical activity and is not transferable.


Exceptions to any of the stated criteria may be made solely by the Director of Parking and Transportation
