Faculty and Staff Parking

All Faculty/Staff and Affiliate parking permits expire on July 31st each year. To obtain/renew your permit, log into your account here  after June 15th. 

For detailed instructions on ordering your parking pass, please see this guide.

For faculty and staff who need access to West Alumni & White Hall, please fill out this form for gate access.

All cars parked in a URI lot must have a valid parking permit. Faculty and staff parking lots are marked in gold on the Kingston campus map.

Permits held by faculty and staff must be renewed on a yearly basis. 

Your License Plate Is Your Parking Permit

URI uses license plate recognition to verify registered vehicles. Please park with your license plate facing outward, and be sure that it isn’t obstructed by license plate covers, stickers, or debris. It is imperative that you keep your license plate updated to avoid receiving a ticket. 

If you have a symbol in your plate, enter the plate number without the symbol. For disabled license plates, enter “DV” or “DP” before the plate number. For example: DPSAMPLE

Information You’ll Need

You’ll need your URI SSO (Single Sign-On) credentials to login, (for more information about SSO or to reset your password, please click here). To register your vehicle, you’ll need its license plate number, make, and model.

Avoid a Ticket

Your license plate must be visible at all times. Pulling through or backing into parking spaces is no longer permitted.

Take extra care to accurately enter your license plate number when purchasing your permit through uri.aimsparking.com.

Park in a lot designated for faculty and staff and obtain your permit before bringing your car on campus.

Never park on hash lines or in a fire lane. Only park in a designated parking lot (between two white lines, not on hash lines, sidewalks or in the dirt/grass)

What to do if you get a parking ticket

Keep Your Vehicle Information Current

It is important that your vehicle information is up-to-date. If you get a new vehicle or your license plate number changes, update it at uri.aimsparking.com. If you bring a different vehicle to campus, you must update your vehicle information BEFORE bringing that car to campus.   Failure to do so, will result in a $10 fine.   

Accessible Parking

A copy of your disability placard along with the registration showing ownership should be forwarded to the Transportation and Parking office in-person, mailed, or emailed. 

ADA Placard is valid in: 

  • any ADA space on campus
  • any other regular, non-reserved space in a Faculty/Staff lot

The state-issued placard should be displayed from your rear-view mirror. 

Faculty/Staff can renew their permit with their state-issued ADA placard if it is current.  New documentation must be provided when the ADA placard expires.  

Please note that neither the URI Transportation and Parking office, nor the Office of Human Resources Administration, nor the Office of Disability, Access, and Inclusion can allow or provide access to the public accessible parking spaces on campus. Only your state’s department/registry of motor vehicles can provide disability placards, which when paired with a URI guest pass allow parking in accessible parking areas. If you have a disability placard, please contact our office to add it to your guest pass. With a placard assigned to you and a valid URI permit or pass, you can park in any accessible parking space on campus. For additional information about state-issued Disability Placards, visit this website.

Qualified individuals with disabilities with specific parking needs that may not be met by access to public ADA-compliant parking spaces must engage in the interactive process by contacting one of the divisions below:

Employees: Office of Human Resources Administration.

Students: Office of Disability, Access, and Inclusion.
