Vendor permits are available to individuals and companies that do business with the University at Buffalo.
If you are a vendor doing business with UB and your vehicle will be parked for more than 20 minutes at a time, you need a vendor permit. A vendor permit allows you to park in designated areas on campus, as listed here.

If your business involves simple deliveries that take 20 minutes or less, a vendor permit is not required as long as your vehicle is marked with a logo, business design or dashboard card. All dashboard cards must be 8 1/2" x 11" and be on record in the Parking and Transportation office.
You can apply for a vendor permit if you are an outside company, agent or individual that does business with UB. Each person requesting a permit must complete an application. Current UB faculty, staff or students are not eligible to apply for a vendor permit. Vendor permits are valid January 1 through December 31 of the year issued. Apply online through the Parking and Transportation E-Business Center, or visit the Parking and Transportation Services office to apply.
A vendor permit costs $50.00 and is transferable to any vehicle utilized by the registered permit holder.
There is a $15.00 replacement fee for lost or stolen permits. Please complete a Lost or Stolen Permit Form.
Renewals are accepted in the fall of the prior calendar year. Any outstanding fines associated with the applicant or the vehicle(s) being registered must be paid before a vendor permit will be issued.
When you apply for your permit, you can request “pool” usage. With pool usage, several individuals may share one permit. Your company accepts responsibility for all fees and fines associated with the permit.
For short-term parking, you can park at one of the parking meters conveniently located throughout campus. Please note that payment at parking meters is required, even if you have a parking permit.
Parking meters are enforced 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Rates vary per location.
You can use a 1-800 number or smartphone app to pay at select meters on campus when you pre-register through ParkMobile. ParkMobile is a service that lets you make payments from your credit card, get reminders before your parking expires, add time to your space from your phone and manage your parking receipts.
Traditional parking meters are located throughout North and South Campus. Parking is prohibited at malfunctioning meters.
