Refund Information

STUDENTS

As communicated by the email sent to all students on March 23, 2020:

The university will return a pro-rata share of the cost of parking permits that have been previously purchased in full for the current academic semester. The pro-rata basis reimbursement for those already paid in full for parking will extend from March 25, 2020, through the end of the spring semester. The reimbursement will go on the student account. No action needs to be taken by the student.

EMPLOYEES

Because of the recent changes in campus operations, wherein many faculty and staff are working remotely in order to maintain UC's educational mission while seeking to contain the spread of COVID-19, the university will provide a reimbursement, on a pro-rata basis, to those employees with an automatic paycheck deduction for parking.

The pro-rata March 2020 reimbursement will cover the time period of March 25 through the end of the month. That pro-rata reimbursement will appear on April paychecks. (The reimbursement will appear on April paychecks because changes in campus operations occurred too late to alter March paychecks. Thus, expect to see the usual automatic deductions to employees' March 2020 paychecks.)

However, no automatic paycheck deductions for parking will be made in either April or May 2020.

If you will be returning to work upon the resumption of normal activities there is nothing you need to do.  If you were planning on returning your permit for summer semester, please complete the cancellation request form.

If  you have already submitted a request, you can check on the status of your permit by going to our homepage and clicking on the "View My Account" button. Log in with your central login and scroll down to View My Permits. Any active permits will be listed there. If your permit is returned, you will need to come to the Parking Office upon return to work to reactivate your parking. If your permit is not returned, and you will not be returning for the summer, please resubmit a request at the link above.

For those who have a vehicle currently parked in a garage, you may keep the vehicle in the garage while gates are up. Once we return to normal operations, any individual parked will need to have an active permit. We will send out email notification prior to resuming normal operations. Please note:  any student that had an active permit for Spring Semester will still be able to get in/out of the garage if gates come down before May 9.

Fall Semester Permits

Fall semester permits were scheduled to go on sale May 14. With information changing daily regarding COVID-19, we have decided to postpone those sales until a later date. Announcements will be made in advance of the start date.

Let's Talk: Driving & Walking Distractions

Asleep at the Wheel: Don't Do It

How much sleep did you get last night? If it’s less than 4 hours, you’re 10x more at risk for a driving accident. Make sure that you’re hitting the hay and getting enough Z’s – tired driving is just as dangerous as driving under the influence!
