Campus Delivery and Parking Information
In order to access the UC Davis center campus core for deliveries, an appropriate Central Campus permit must be secured through the UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) department and displayed on the delivery vehicle. The center core of UC Davis includes those area(s) controlled-access via gates/staffed kiosks. More information is available on the UC Davis TAPS website.
For most vendors (with the exception of delivery companies/couriers), a Vendor permit AND a Central Campus permit are required, unless deliveries can be made within a 30-minute window a courtesy permit would allow them. The courtesy permits are available at the West Gate Kiosk, located on Hutchison Drive near the west entrance to the central campus.
Third-party carriers who make short term deliveries with marked company vehicles, such as UPS, DHL, and FedEx, are not required to purchase a Vendor permit AND a Central Campus permit if they park in areas appropriate for loading/unloading while making a delivery. A courtesy permit is still required, and can be acquired at the West Gate Kiosk, located on Hutchison Drive near the west entrance to the central campus.
The policies are in place to ensure the safety of the university students and employees, as well as allow for necessary access for deliveries. Failure to follow policy can result in parking fines. More information is on the UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services website. Questions can be directed to the TAPS office at (530) 752-8277 or by using the contact form at https://taps.ucdavis.edu/about/contact.
