Using your permit
Student Day Permit holders must enter the Library Parking lot via the student, right-hand entry lane but may use either exit lane. If parking lot is full or closed, access may be denied. Hourly charges for the Library Parking Lot accrue at the student hourly rate of $0.75/hr. Student Day permit holders have the option to request an access card with this permit that allows hourly parking charges to be billed through the student U-Bill.
If you wish to have a parking access card you will need to retrieve one from Parking Services.
Rate and Payment Options
All parking facilities are cashiered 24/7, the first half hour is free. The second half hour costs $0.35. Each additional hour accrues at the rate of $0.75/hour. There are two options for entering/exiting and making payment:
Take a ticket from the dispenser at the entry gate and pay cash or debit/credit at the exit gate.
Use a parking access card for entry and exit to record parking charges to your U-Bill. The process for billing can take up to 2 months. For example, if you park in the lot in August you won’t be billed for your usage until October’s U-Bill.
Student Park Card
The Student Park Card is a parking access card option available to student who have registered for a Student Day Permit. By using the access card, hourly charges for parking in the Library Parking Lot are billed through your U-Bill. This convenient option saves time when entering and exiting and can help you track your monthly parking expenditures.
How to use the access card
The Student Park Card provides access to the Library Parking Lot only. If the parking lot is full or closed access will be denied.
- In the far right entry lane, present your access card to the access card reader located next to the ticket machine. Present either side of the access card to within one inch of the access card reader's target and hold it still for a second. Do not wave or move the access card over the target. When exiting follow the same procedure and present the access card to the access card reader in the exiting lane.
- If you opt to use the Student Park Card to enter you must also use the card to exit and vice versa. This includes if the parking gates are in the raised position. You may still choose to pull a ticket upon entry and make payment via the cashier.
- Never share, transfer, or "pass-back" a parking access card. Each incidence will result in a daily maximum charge. Repeated misuse will result in cancelation of privileges.
Charges and U-Bill Statements
Hourly charges accrue at the student rate of $0.75/hour; however, the first hour is only $0.35.
Failure to scan in or scan out will result in a “no entry/no exit” fee of $6.00.
The daily maximum fee when using the Student Park Card is $12.00.
Parking access card charges accrue monthly through your U-Bill but could take up to 60 days to post.
