Possibly – it depends on whether or not the lot or structure has an existing waiting list for Reserved spaces. If it does, we cannot switch a permit from one individual to another and bypass the list, we have to honor the people who have been waiting for that area. Please contact us for more information and to see whether or not a specific transfer is permitted.
Reserved spaces are available to USC Faculty and Staff ONLY, and only with a departmental or Director’s recommendation. For consideration to purchase a Reserved permit, or to put your name on a waiting list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
