Proposed Changes to Traffic & Parking Regulations

Posted on March 23, 2017

The Facility, Grounds & Safety Committee (FGSC) is charged with annually reviewing the University’s Traffic & Parking Regulations. The major changes the committee is recommending for implementation are as follows:

Permit Price Adjustments:

  • Semester-only General permit prices will change to be the same for each semester. Fall-only permits will increase from $80 to $85 and Spring-only will decrease from $90 to $85. This change would take effect for Fall 2017.

Summer & Holiday Parking in General Lots:

  • All General Parking lots (lot names that begin with a G) will not be ticketed in the summer and on all University holidays and breaks (all days when there are no classes and/or offices are closed). This change would take effect May 15, 2017.
  • Reserved Lots, Meters, and Handicapped areas will continue to have ticketing enforced year round.

If you have any feedback on the proposed changes, please send it to by Wednesday, April 5. Thank you for your continued support as we work to improve service and safety in our campus parking areas.
