(From the Adjunct Faculty Advisory Committee)
For adjunct faculty who have found campus parking restrictions unclear, current conditions are summarized below.
Currently there are two ways to pay for parking on campus, by permit or by hour. Permits can be bought in advance. There are two types of permits, daily and yearly.
- Daily parking permits are $2 per day. Available in packs of 10 for $20 online, or as needed if bought in person. One may buy as many packs as needed, good up to year 2017.
- A yearly permit is available for $260. It allows parking in Zones D, only. This is on-the-street parking. The permit is good from September 1 to August 31.
Permit parking enforcement:
Permit parking is enforced from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and Friday from 7:00 to 3:30. p.m.
After 3:30 and during the summer, from May 19 to August 26, faculty/staff with permits can also use the A & C zones, which have more spaces.
There is a $40 penalty for parking in the wrong zone
Three levels of appeal:
Waive: $0 additional
Warning: $7 on top of fee
Guilty: $7 on top of fee
The university replaced the meters that took quarters in fall 2015. Electronic meters in metered parking lots cost $2 per hour.
- The Administration Drive Garage area on top of the garage, near the Retriever Activities Center, is the largest metered lot. Circling the lot to find a space may take up to a half hour on the most crowded days, but usually a spot opens up.
- The Commons Drive Garage, behind The Commons building, is a small lot. Small lots almost always filled include Lot 9, near PAHB.
There is a $20 penalty for an expired meter
Appeal: $7 on top of fee
Note: Do not appeal meter fines. Appealing on meters does not win. Parking Services says that a meter is either expired or not; no exceptions.
