Summer Parking Permits Available May 1

University parking lots are controlled for permits during the summer months, with the exception of the R2 and R3 parking areas.  Summer permits will be available for students at a rate of $7 per week. Permits will go on sale Wednesday, May 1, and may only be purchased in person at Parking and Transportation Services, 721 Press Avenue (Parking Structure #6). The permits may be purchased for any number of weeks between May 6 and August 2, 2013.

Please note that even when permits are not required, lots are still monitored for other parking violations such as parking in fire lanes, on yellow lines, and in disabled reserved parking.

Reminder: Take Your Bike Home for Summer

PTS would like to remind students and employees who are leaving campus for the summer to take their bicycles with them. Abandoned are subject to impoundment, even if they are parked in a legal bicycle space. If a bicycle is impounded, the owner will have 90 days to claim it at PTS and pay all citation and impoundment fees. Bicycles unclaimed after 90 days will be disposed of in accordance with University Regulations.

PTS identifies abandoned bicycles with tags before impounding them, and will wait a minimum of five days before removing bicycles that have been tagged. If a student or employee who is on campus during the summer months discovers a tag on their bicycle, simply removing it will notify PTS staff that the bicycle is actively being used.

Members of the campus community are encouraged to tune into 1700 AM (WQKH 253) to hear campus parking and transportation information. The station broadcasts 24 hours, 7 days a week.
