Permit Options

A parking permit or guest pass (see Visitor Parking) is required to park on the UM  Mountain and Missoula College campuses throughout the year, Monday - Friday 7 am - 5 pm.  Areas that are marked as reserved (highlighted pink on the parking map) are leased spaces and are not available to use by anyone other than the reserved space owner.  To accommodate the needs of commuters, there are designated areas where overnight parking is allowed.  These areas are highlighted DARK GREEN on the parking map.  If you are parked across campus after dark, Grizzly Walk (243-2777) is available to escort you so you do not have to walk alone.


Students parking on mountain and Missoula College campuses need to request a parking permit through CyberBear or directly through the web at Select the "Parking" tab in Cyberbear and follow the instructions.  Directly through the web select Get Permits.  Upon completion of your parking selections  you will be able to park on campus.  You will be able to select to pick up or have your permit mailed.  If you are unable to finalize or if you have any questions please give us a call at: 243-6132.

UM Faculty and Staff please request parking through the web portal
