Parking Permits

UIS hang tag All full and part-time faculty, students and staff must obtain a Parking Hang Tag for their vehicle, when parked on University property . The Hang Tag is obtained by registering the vehicle with the Parking Operations Office. Persons who work at the University of Illinois Springfield, but who are paid by another entity, must purchase a hang tag to park on University property.

NOTE: The parking hang tag image displayed provides an example of the 2009 – 2010 academic calendar year parking hang tag.

Parking Hang Tag Effective Dates:

An Annual parking hang tag is valid for the fall and spring semester, along with the summer session. For example, an Annual parking hang tag purchased during the FALL 2014 semester is valid for the Fall 2014 semester, the Spring 2015 semester, and the Summer 2015 session and has an Expiration date of August 31, 2015.

An Annual parking hang tag purchased in the spring semester is only valid for the spring semester and summer session. For example, an Annual parking hang tag purchased during the SPRING 2015 semester is valid only for the SPRING 2015 semester and Summer 2015 session and has an Expiration date of August 31, 2015.

All Housing parking hang tags are sold on the above mentioned academic calendar year format.

Therefore, regardless of purchase date the “14/15  UIS ANNUAL” parking hang tag’s expiration date is August 31, 2015.

A Fall parking hang tag purchased in the fall semester is valid for that specific semester. For example, a Fall parking hang tag purchased in the Fall 2014 semester is valid only for the Fall 2014 semester and has an expiration date of December 31, 2014.

Therefore, regardless of purchase date the “14 UIS FALL” parking hang tag’s expiration date is December 31, 2014.
