Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) has been working through details for fall parking with options to help serve faculty and staff returning to campus full time as well as those who may be engaging in a hybrid work arrangement for the pilot Fiscal Year (FY) 21-22.
All university garages require either an active permit or payment when exiting, and parking meters are active. All other parking such as surface lots also require a permit. Active permits or payments will continue to be required in the fall for anyone parking on campus. Below are flexible parking and transportation options to help employees determine what options will work best for them.
If You Are Only Parking Occasionally This Fall
On July 13, PTS will launch the new Occasional Parking Program for Employees as a low-cost parking alternative for staff and faculty who need occasional access to the university garages. For just $5 per day, staff and faculty can access participating garages with the ability to enter and exit the garage throughout the day at no additional cost. This program offers the opportunity for substantial discounts from the regular garage daily rate. This option is ideal for those who will be parking in garages fewer than three times per week.
If You Do NOT Need a Permit This Fall But May Need One For FY 22-23
If you had an F permit as of March 13, 2020, and will not need one this fall but may need one for FY 22-23, PTS has identified a new flexible option to retain your spot in your previous parking location. To retain your spot without incurring an annual permit cost, enroll in the Occasional Parking Program for Employees by purchasing $10 worth of Occasional Parking credits by September 30, 2021. Beginning July 13, these credits can be purchased through My Parking Profile and used to park in participating garages.
After the initial $10 purchase, there is no obligation to continue using Occasional Parking credits to retain your spot and have a renewal option for FY 22-23. The final opportunity to renew your permit will be for FY 22-23. If you do not renew your permit for FY 22-23, you will be removed from the list and your spot will become available to other parkers.
If You Need a Permit This Fall
Active FY 20-21 permits expire August 17, 2021. You cannot park on campus or access a garage using your FY 20-21 permit beyond this date until you renew. FY 21-22 permit holders will not need to enroll in the Occasional Parking Program for Employees to retain their space and have a renewal option for FY 22-23.
