  • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

    • Parking Services supports the use of Electric Vehicles, as these vehicles promote a means for commuting that reduces and/or eliminates pollution.  Vehicles occupying parking spaces set aside for Electric Vehicle Charging are limited to 4 hours per day.  Individuals charging their electric vehicles on campus are asked to consider the needs of others by removing their vehicles when they are charged.  This will allow other users to access to the EV Charging Stations.   A citation may be issued for parking over the 4 hour time limit.  To ensure that users are responsible and cooperate with each other pertaining to the use of electric charging stations on campus, the following guidelines are established.

      • A valid University of Cincinnati permit must be displayed to avoid a citation
      • There is a four (4) hour maximum usage per day
      • Vehicle must be charging

    • Parking Services is not responsible for damage caused by improper charging of an electric vehicle.  All EV Charging Station users are expected to use the chargers properly.
