Visitor parking permits are on a first-come, first-served basis.
For visitors who drive to campus, UC Merced has parking spaces available for $8 a day. Visitor permits are for temporary parking in any non-specially marked space in Lake Lot 2 and the Evolution Valley lot. Visitor permits are only valid in the lot from where they are purchased. Purchasing a parking permit does not guarantee space availability.
Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) also sells short-term visitor parking permits.
