Vendor and contractor vehicles must display valid parking permits to park on any UAlbany campus.

Note: Marked delivery trucks — for example, UPS, Staples and Pepsi — are exempt from this requirement.

You must gain prior approval to register a vehicle by submitting a Vendor & Contractor Parking Permit Application.

Once you’re approved to register a vendor vehicle, you’ll be required to pay a fee and provide proof you are associated with a company performing University services.

You can pay the fee online or inside the Office of Parking & Mass Transit Services’ office by making an in-person appointment during business hours of Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  

Loading docks and load/unload zones are available for up to 30 minutes with the proper permit displayed (prior approval required). Vehicles must then be moved to the proper parking area where valid contractor or vendor permit is allowed.
