New in Parking Operations for 2020/2021

Annual, semester, weekly, daily, and hourly parking sales for lots in Central, West, and North Grounds will start on September 1, 2020. Annual permits set to expire on September 1, 2020, will be honored through September 11 to allow permit holders time to decide the approach that suits their needs.

Changes in Parking Operations for Central, West, and North Grounds

  • Methods of Payment:
    • Only annual parking permits purchased with payroll deductions will be eligible for pre-tax payroll deduction.
    • Annual, most semester, daily, and weekly parking must be purchased through the Online Parking Portal. To  purchase a semester permit for a location not available in the portal, contact P&T to explore options.

    • Hourly parking must be purchased through the ParkMobile App. Information about setting up an account can be found HERE. A list of locations where hourly parking is available can be found HERE.

    • All parking access requires that the correct license plate(s) is linked to the parking sale so please have that information ready when purchasing parking.

    • $.35 per transaction and $5 monthly set up and maintenance fees will apply. 

Annual Permits vs. Semester/Daily/Weekly/Hourly Permits:

  • For those with annual permits scheduled to expire on September 1, 2020, please wait for the email from P&T, which will be sent between now and September 4, prompting you to log into the Online Parking Portal to purchase an annual permit. Note that the annual permit you had in 2019/2020 will remain an option for you through the end of August 2021, and until you need or want it, you can purchase daily, weekly, semester, or hourly permits, or you could even elect to purchase no permit.
  • Annual parking permits remain the best option in the following cases:
    • Those parking on Grounds three or more days per week.
    • Those who do not want to purchase a daily, weekly, or semester permit online as needed.
  • For those parking on Grounds less than three days per week, new options are now available including:
    • Delay purchase of an annual permit for up to a year. (Permit holders who delay purchasing an annual permit will be able to repurchase their same annual permit at any time through August 2021.)
    • Access to hourly, daily, weekly, and semester permits in most close-in locations. These options reduce overall costs and potentially reduce reliance on UTS.
