Student parking permit fees transferred to student bill
Change allows students to better manage parking expense
In response to parent and student requests over the past several years, Parking Services is changing how students will pay for permit parking.
When students choose to purchase a parking permit at the beginning of a semester, that cost will now be added to the student bill through the Office of the Bursar. Cash, check and credit card payments will no longer be accepted for permit purchases. Students will still be able to pay the daily rate in the garage by cash or credit card.
"Parents and students have been asking for this change for years," says Kendra Violet, Director of Parking Services. "Students will no longer have to have the money prior to the start of the semester to pay for parking, and can spread the cost out throughout the semester. This change is especially helpful for students who rely on scholarships and loans.”
Parking Services originally planned to present this change to Student Government at the end of March, with the change taking effect with summer parking sales April 1. However, because of the impact of COVID-19 and the transition to online classes through summer semester, the implementation was delayed. The change will take effect when student permits become available.
Students will continue to purchase parking through the Parking Services website or in the office located at 4 Edwards when campus reopens. A video is available on the UC MainStreet YouTube channel to walk students through the online permit purchase process. Citations for illegal parking will need to be paid in the Parking Services office or online and will not be connected to student billing.
Questions regarding this process change should be directed to the Parking Services office at email@example.com or 513-556-2283.
As always, we ask for all permit holders to keep their license plate up to date on the Parking Services website. With a high demand for parking on campus, it is important that Parking Services monitor and protect spaces for permit holders. Your license plate lets the Parking Services staff know that your car belongs in the garage, helps identify violators and also makes it easier to contact you in case of an emergency.
