You can get your parking permit online at Parking Permits Online. For questions or concerns, contact the Department of Public Safety at 501-916-3400 or

Your Trojan ID

Carry your Trojan ID when you are on campus. The card is the property of UA Little Rock and must be surrendered upon request. To get your Trojan ID, visit the Information Center, located on the first floor of the Donaghey Student Center (DSC) directly across from the Bookstore. There is no fee to obtain your first card.

You can use your card in the following ways:

  • As your main identification on campus as a student
  • To receive discounts from businesses in the community
  • To access the DSC Fitness Center
  • To check out books and resources at the Ottenheimer Library circulation desk
  • As a declining balance card. You can deposit money on the card and use it at any Dining Services vendor (office located in the DSC 117)
    • Enter the south entrance on Campus Drive from Asher Avenue
  • Access to Residence Hall (if living on campus)
  • Park in no-fee parking lots (Parking Map) designated as ID required areas. Reserved parking lots are fee-based and managed through Public Safety.

New Students must be registered for classes prior to making their first Trojan ID. For questions, contact DSC Administration at 501-916-3362 or
