Faculty/Staff Parking Hangtags

Faculty and staff parking hangtags are now available online via

Use your URI Employee ID number as your “Account Number” and last name to verify and link your vehicle to your parking hang tag. You will also need your license plate number, make, model, and registration expiration date of your vehicle.

One free hang tag, which may be transferred to other vehicles owned by an employee, will be issued to all employees. There will be a $50.00 replacement fee for any lost or misplaced hangtag.
If you are unable to log on to the website, contact Parking Services at 401-874-9281, Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Displaying Hangtags

Hang tags should be placed on rear view mirrors with the serial number facing out so that it can be read from the outside of the vehicle. If you are unable to hang it on the mirror, place the hangtag on the driver’s side of the dashboard with the serial number facing out so that it can be read from the outside of the vehicle.

Transferring Hang Tags

Only one parking hang tag will be issued per registrant. If multiple vehicles have been registered, this hang tag should be transferred between vehicles as they are used. Forgetting to transfer your hang tag to the registered vehicle in which you are using may result in issuance of a citation and possible towing at the owner’s expense even if the vehicle is properly registered. If you do forget to transfer your hang tag, report to the Visitors Center and obtain a temporary dashboard permit before you park your vehicle on campus.

Do not transfer your hang tag to any non-registered vehicle. If a new vehicle has been purchased, simply contact Parking Services to register the new vehicle.

Sharing of Hang Tags

Parking hang tags may not be shared for any reason. If a valid hang tag is found on a student’s or non-registered vehicle, that car will be towed at the owners expense and issued a citation. Parking privileges for all parties involved will also be revoked.

Falsifying URI parking permits constitutes fraud punishable by fine, parking privilege revocation, and/or expulsion.
