Residential Permits

Residential Parking Permits

To help address the high demand for parking in residential areas surrounding the University of Oregon, Skinner Butte Historical District and Downtown, the City of Eugene has established a parking program that designates special zones (view map) and rules for residential parking.

All residential parking zone areas allow two-hour parking without a permit during designated times. All zone areas are posted with signs stating the time of day when the two-hour parking limit is enforced. With the appropriate zone permit, you may park beyond the posted time limits. Parking permit rates vary depending on the zone - see the Rates page for more information.


Residents whose property is in a designated zone A, B, C, E, F, G, H, or J area may be eligible to purchase a residential permit which allows residents to park beyond the posted time limits within the appropriate permit zone. Permits must be displayed on the left side of the rear bumper. Vehicles with permits that are not displayed correctly will be ticketed.

Guest Permits

Guest permits are available free of charge in all zones to eligible residents for visitors staying longer than two hours during the posted times. Guest permits are obtainable only by an eligible resident. Residents not currently using the parking program must provide the required information to obtain a guest permit.
