Reserved Spaces

Two types of Reserved Spaces are available for Staff and Faculty, departmental or individual.

  • Requests for either type of reserved space must be approved from the Chief Administrative Officer of the department
  • The written Reserved Space Request needs to be sent to Jill Brown, Permit Manager at jbrown10@utk.edu with a preferred location indicated
  • There is a substantial fee for this level of premium parking. Departments will charge this to their account. Individuals will need to pay for this with their own funds.
  • The Director of Parking and Transit Services reviews all requests and will either approve or not approve based on space availability.

NOTE: Students are NOT eligible to purchase a reserved parking space

Loading/Unloading

Most buildings have loading docks and deliveries need to be sent to the loading dock and NOT unload from the street.

The Hill Area – Limited Departmental Unloading Permits will be issued to units located on Circle Drive. Departments will check out permits to individuals in advance that need access to unloading areas. These permits provide access. Restricted times will be strictly enforced.

The written request needs to be sent to Jill Brown, Permit Manager at jbrown10@utk.edu
