Changes to Faculty / Staff Parking

Faculty and Staff

Only minor changes are planned for faculty/staff for the upcoming year.

Gated Permit Renewals

Those with permits to either the Gated Regents or Gated Hilltop lots will RENEW THEIR EXISTING PERMITS rather than purchase a new permit. Specific instructions will be sent to Gated permit holders prior to the start of fall permit sales.

Parking Zone Changes

The College Heights Blvd Lot, located near PS1 at the corner of College Heights Blvd and University Blvd, will be zoned faculty/staff Non-Premium (NP) parking. This will slightly increase the availability of faculty/staff parking in the area. See the 2014-2015 PARKING MAP for all zone changes for the new year.

Transit Service Changes

Transit Services are being adjusted to provide better service.

  • The WHITE LINE SOUTH CAMPUS PARK AND RIDE route will now provide service every 6 minutes at peak. Stops will be added at off-campus student housing areas on Creason Drive.
  • The Red Line is being re-routed as the RED LINE NORTH CAMPUS CIRCULATOR and will now serve 11th Avenue, off-campus student housing on Center Street, the Alumni Square Garage, and the academic buildings on "The Hill" and on State and Normal Streets.
    • The Red Line will no longer serve Chestnut Street.
  • The evening GREEN LINE "SHOPPING SHUTTLE"service will be increased to 20 minute frequency and will provide service to off-campus housing on Creason and Center Street.

Permit Options for Faculty/Staff

Permit fees will remain the same for faculty/staff during the 2014-15 Academic Year. See the 2014-2015 PARKING MAP for all zone changes for the new year.
