On Aug. 15, a program will go into effect that charges for parking on campus from 5 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Employees whose work schedule is between 5 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. (Monday evening through Friday morning) may purchase a weeknight parking permit through their department parking coordinator based on the sliding salary scale.
Employees who commute to campus via alternative methods (bus, vanpool, carpool, bike, walk) between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and who do not purchase a daytime permit but return frequently to campus at night may purchase an annual $25 weeknight permit. Daytime Commuter Alternative Program members are eligible for 20 free weeknight passes per semester.
Employee daytime permits are honored during weeknights; no additional action or fee will be required.
Permits are not required for weekend parking, from 5 p.m. Friday to 7:30 a.m. Monday. Events may impact lot availability; rollover lots will be provided.
Implementing weeknight parking limits the increases to daytime parking permit and patient/visitor rates. The parking system at Carolina is receipt-supported. Funds from parking permits pay for the operation and maintenance of the parking system, including lots and decks, and support fare-free local and regional transit.
