After a two-year pause on paid employee parking, monthly and per diem charges will be reinstated on July 1 at a reduced rate. Monthly parking charges will be cut by 50% from the previous parking rates in 2020. Per diem rates will also be reduced by 50% for individuals who prefer to use daily parking rather than monthly parking. See more information on parking rates and parking assignments.
Parking at Yale is limited. Permit prices are based on a sliding scale.
Any parking permit issued by Yale University must be displayed. Should you drive another vehicle without a permit, it is your duty to inform the Parking Department.
All vehicles parked on University property must be registered, insured, and operable.
On average, your parking permit fee covers only 65% of the cost to provide your parking space due to construction, financing, maintenance and enforcement costs.
