Is there free parking at UGA?
There is no free parking on the main campus or The Health Sciences Campus during weekday operating hours. All areas require a permit or a pass to park. Visitors and those with no permit may pay to park in a visitor deck or ParkMobile lot. Some areas are not enforced during evenings, nights, and weekends.
Free with UGA ID or permit 5:30 p.m. - 5:30 a.m. Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
If students do not pay for their parking tickets, their account is flagged and they cannot register for classes for the following semester. The best thing a student can do to avoid parking violations is to call into the office, Reynolds said.

Private car park fines are initially not legally enforceable but can become legally enforceable if the car park operator wins a case against you in a small claims court. This can make it difficult to know whether to ignore the private car park ticket or pay it.
Are private company parking tickets enforceable?
They're known as Parking Charge Notices and aren't an official fine – in fact, private companies don't have a legal right to demand payment from you.
You have two options - you can plead guilty and pay your fine, or plead not guilty and fight the ticket in court. Pleading guilty and paying your fine is the most convenient option for some drivers, even though it does involve certain penalties like point accumulation and increased auto insurance rates.
Most street parking is free on Sundays in Athens. And all UGA lots are free and unrestricted on non-game weekends.
Individuals who do not have a permit may use the pay stations to pre-pay for parking, or pay through the ParkMobile app, which is available for download on iPhone or Android devices.
