    Hello NACAS!

    I am curious how other schools handle Parking Permit fees for students / visitors.

    Do you charge per semester or is it an annual pass?
    What are the parking zones and fee amounts?
    Does your bursar collect the permit amounts (goes on student account in your SIS)? Or is payment made through another system (for example T2)?
    Do you charge everyone or only those that request a permit?
    Are visitors required to get a permit?
    Do you charge visitors, if so how much?

    Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.

    Good Morning Kerri,

    Here's what we do at the University of Houston.

    Do you charge per semester or is it an annual pass?   We have both semester and annuals at our Student garages all other permits types are annual.

    What are the parking zones and fee amounts?
    Student Zone - $370
    Student Garage - $370/semester, $615 annual
    Remote Campus - $185
    Evening Weekend - $105
    Motorcycle $75
    F/S Garage - $830
    F/S Gated Surface - $625
    F/S Reserved - $935
    F/S Ungated surface - $380

    Does your bursar collect the permit amounts (goes on student account in your SIS)? Or is payment made through another system (for example T2)?  We use T2, Students can choose between paying by credit card or adding it to their fee bill, F/S can pay by credit card or through payroll deduction.

    Do you charge everyone or only those that request a permit?  This is a voluntary fee, only those purchasing a parking permit are charged.

    Are visitors required to get a permit?   No they park at visitor parking locations and pay for the time parked.

    Do you charge visitors, if so how much?​    Yes, $2 per hour up to a daily max of $14.    The first 30 minutes is at no charge.

    Kerri,

    Here at the College of Staten Island Auxiliary Services oversees the parking and all related fees and fines.  The office is a one stop shop for parking permits as well as ID cards and meal plan issues.  Parking runs from a stand alone database and uses BlackBoard transact back end.  Permits are required for all students , faculty and staff, and we are currently evaluating the installation of hourly parking stations.

    Here is our link and feel free to reach out directly with any questions.

    Hello!

    The Universities at Shady Grove has an active parking program that we recently (2016) switched from a passive program.  When passive, all students paid through a facility fee and parked where they pleased. Staff were charged through an office fee, so adjuncts without offices were not charged at all. We have a very large Conference Center on campus, and a portion of the revenue was designed to off-set parking expenses.  We switched to an active parking program principally to make it more fair - students can elect to pay if they need it, all faculty are charged appropriately and visitors are charged fairly now.

    So, our student body can choose an annual or semester rate, with payment plans in place. Our parking office manages all transactions through T2, these charges are NOT posted to student accounts (which has positive and negative consequences for them). Our parking areas are gated (or metered) with pay stations and access cards, so permit holders and visitors can park alike. Our faculty and staff are on a tiered rate system, but students all pay the same. Rates can be found here: Parking.  Visitors are charges $2 per hour, up to $14 per day. Since the Conference Center has business from early to late, our gates (and visitor rates) are 24/7.

    Cheers,

    Carl

    Hi Kerri,
    We charge $60/for an annual pass however if a student is graduating in December for example we will refund $30 for spring semester. We have passes for Faculty/Staff, Residential, Commuter and a section of a parking area for Faculty/Staff that is free (it is in the northern most area of campus). Everyone registers online and the charges for students are applied to their student account. Faculty/Staff can have the fee withdrawn via payroll or pay via their account as well. We have a few visitor spots on campus. If we have groups on campus the hosting department is asked to issue temporary parking passes that can be picked up from our office for the event, these are free.
    I am happy to discuss any of these details in greater detail.

    Good luck,

    We do not charge for parking permits.  Everyone is required to have a permit who regularly parks in our lots.  We have 20 visitor parking spots between to parking lots at our main campus and 10 visitor parking at our second campus.  We also don't charge for parking tickets also.  We use them as a reminder and if someone regularly disregards parking rules we inform their manager or if it is a student we talk to the Vice Provost.  This has normally taken care of the problem.  We don't' charge visitors and we do not have any parking meters. 

     

    In the event the 20 visitor parking spaces won't handle the number of visitors we will create extra visitor spaces by closing part of a parking lot.  Our security department works closely with campus events to make sure our guests are well taken care of. 

     

    We have a limited number of reserved spaces and those are for positions that report directly to the president.  Parking is mostly first come first serve.  We do have lots that are designated for employees and lots designated for students.  If we run out of room in student lots security will send students to employee lots.  We have an overflow lot that is not regularly used that we used 5-10 times a year.  That lot is more than a city block away from campus which is why it is rarely used.

     

    Our second campus, in Joplin, has an abundance of parking and does not experience the normal parking issues.

    ​HI Kerri,

    Your questions: who to charge, how to charge them, and how much to charge--are important ones.

    A couple more that you may wish to consider:
    • Why are you considering charging for parking?
      • To moderate demand?
      • To balance use in the system (between crowded and underutilized areas)?
      • To fund the parking operation?
      • To fund parking and transportation?
      • To fund functions outside of parking?
      • To fund future capital investments?
    • What will you do to enhance value, so customers feel that they are getting their money's worth?
    • How transparent are you prepared to be? There is less pushback if people understand for what they are paying.
    • How will you address questions of fairness, equity, and social/economic justice?
    • Will you need additional staff or controls?
    I'm happy to discuss over email or by phone. Please feel free to reach out.

    Sincerely,

    Good morning,

    With the exception of commuter students, Penn State University policy does not allow undergraduate students to park on campus until they've completed at least 29.1 credits.

    Below is information on student parking at Penn State's University Park ("main") campus:

    1 - Do you charge per semester or is it an annual pass?

    We offer dual-semester (Fall/spring) and single semester (fall, spring, summer) permits.

    2 - What are the parking zones and fee amounts?

    Resident core lots - six distinct parking areas located in the vicinity of six different resident hall areas

    Fall/spring - $640
    Single semester (fall or spring) - $320
    Summer (all sessions) - $207
    Summer (summer session II only) - $102
    *One of these lots is priced differently, as a permit is included as part of the student's lease rate with Housing (this is primarily graduate student housing)*

    Resident long-term storage - available to all eligible resident students
    Fall/spring - $316
    Single semester (fall or spring) - $158
    Summer (all sessions) - $102
    Summer (summer session II only) - $51

    Off-campus long-term storage - available to all eligible students living off campus who need overnight, on-campus vehicle storage
    Fall/spring - $398
    Single semester (fall or spring) - $199
    Summer (all sessions) - $TBD for 2019
    Summer (summer session II only) - $TBD for 2019

    Off-campus commuter - available to all students living off campus who do NOT need overnight, on-campus vehicle storage
    Fall/spring - $90
    Single semester (fall or spring) - $45
    Summer (all sessions) - $33
    Summer (summer session II only) - $19

    3 - Does your bursar collect the permit amounts (goes on student account in your SIS)? Or is payment made through another system (for example T2)?

    Student permit registration is done online using T2's online parking portal, with payment required at the time of purchase by credit card.

    4 - Do you charge everyone or only those that request a permit?

    All campus parking areas are reserved, either during select hours or 24/7. During reserved hours, use of a parking areas requires purchase of a valid permit or payment of an hourly fee (if available), whether they're an employee, student or visitor. Most of our student lots are exclusively for students, while visitor parking is offered in select areas also used by faculty and staff.

    5 - Are visitors required to get a permit?

    Yes, visitors must purchase a permit or pay the hourly rate during reserved hours.

    6 - Do you charge visitors, if so how much?

    $8 for one-day permit or $1 per hour


    If you have any questions, please let me know.
