EV Charging Station Use Regulations

Charging stations are provided on a first come, first served basis. The EV charging station stalls are limited to four hours of use. 

A rate of $0.16 per kWh is applied for charging an electric vehicle. Customers are required to pay the applicable hourly facility parking fees.  


Fleet Vehicle Charging

University departments should coordinate with Fleet Services to determine EV vehicle selections and verify existing or planned EV charging stations. Parking and Transportation is committed to providing EV charging for both public and fleet vehicles, mostly at the same stations if possible. Existing EV charging sites will be evaluated and may be adjusted as needed to meet campus needs. 

Fleet vehicles can also use the existing EV charging installation south of the Madison Street solar panels. 


Parking and Transportation will continue to monitor industry trends and campus needs in order to inform expansion. EV charging may be expanded over time and as infrastructure and funding allows. Suggestions for EV charging locations can be submitted to
