8.10.1 Assigned Parking
The university is primarily a commuter's institution; therefore, parking is essential for the conduct of education and research. Assigned parking, in specific areas, is available to all employees, residents of University Housing and certain students (Handicapped, Medicine, Pharmacy and Allied Health, and Graduate Assistants). Assigned lots are available twenty-four hours except where posted otherwise. Parking is prohibited on student lots between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m.
Assigned Parking requires advance payment of fees by one of two (2) methods:
Payroll Deduction: Application requires completion of Procedure for Assigned Parking/Parking Application/Parking Payroll Deduction Authorization, form 546A.
Cash Basis: Requires submission of form 546A along with a personal check to the University for payment of parking fees. Applicants are also mandated to post a $10.00 refundable gate card deposit.
All Assigned Parking users are required to display the parking tag issued which identifies individual parking assignments, to avoid being ticketed and/or towed for illegal parking.
A fee is assessed for a lost gate card or parking tag (current fee is $10.00).
Secondary parking assignments are also available to those employees who are required to commute across campus while transacting university business. This requires a written request containing all pertinent information with the approval of the applicant's supervisor.
Parking rates are determined by the Board of Governors of the university.
