Parking permits for the 2021-2022 academic year are now for sale through the MavPark website, with some new changes to various lots and the reintroduction of the 7-day permit.
Permits can be purchased by semester or for a full academic year. Changes include Lot CPW, renamed Lot F13, changing from residential parking to faculty and staff parking and the closure of Lipscomb Hall and Center Point apartment lots. Parking and Transportation Services has also reintroduced the 7-day permit for all customers at $40.
During the campus closure through the COVID-19 pandemic, the 30-day monthly permit rates temporarily decreased to $22.75 for faculty and staff and $17.50 for students. Starting Aug. 21, the 30-day monthly permit will return to $80. But students and full-time faculty can still purchase the annual parking permit, which will still prorate to the $17.50 or $22.75 per month rate respectively, and return the permits for a prorated refund up until the Spring 2022 census date, Feb. 2, 2022.
The faculty and staff reserved parking spaces are individually numbered. These numbers have been sequential but have gotten jumbled in recent years.
Parking and Transportation Services will renumber the signs this summer to list them sequentially again. Permit holders for these spaces do not need to move to another spot. They will retain the same parking space, but the number may change. More details will be sent to the permit holders individually.
People can login using their NetID and password and select a permit for purchase. Permits are virtual, so there’s no need for a decal. Their license plate number will be their permit. Charges will be posted to their campus account within 24 hours.
The most popular choice is the commuting student permit, which runs $210 annually, $130 per semester and $80 for the summer. There are also permit options for motorcycles, running at $115 annually, $70 per semester and $45 for the summer.
