2020-21 faculty-staff parking permits available for purchase; new options for remote workers
Faculty and staff parking permits became available for online purchase last week, and individuals who previously had a parking permit were sent an email with renewal information.
Faculty or staff who will be working remotely or a hybrid schedule may wish to purchase monthly, daily or hourly parking instead of purchasing an annual permit. Additional information about these options is available online. Working circumstances may change during the year, and parking permits may be purchased at any time.
No prorated refunds for annual permits paid in full will be given after March 1, 2021. Requests to cancel payroll deduction payments must be made by April 30, 2021.
Current annual parking permits expire on Aug. 15, 2020, and new permits will be valid from Aug. 1, 2020, through Aug. 15, 2021. In order to avoid delays or have a lapse in campus parking eligibility, Parking and Transportation Services recommends purchasing an annual parking permit by Aug. 5 to allow time for delivery of the associated Garage Access Card (“A” permits only) or “Reserve” permit through campus mail.
Each faculty or staff member may list up to three vehicles per online account, but only one of those linked vehicles may be parked on campus at a given time.
Existing license plate numbers linked on an individual’s online account will be listed as choices for the new permit, and associated vehicle information will not need to be entered again. License plates continue to serve as an individual’s parking permit, and as a result a standard campus parking permit is not required to be displayed in a vehicle’s windshield. However, some parking spaces require displaying special permits, including spaces that are labeled reserved, university vehicle or handicap-accessible.
Any vehicle that is parked on campus needs to be linked to an active Purdue permit to avoid receiving a citation, and each permit holder is responsible for maintaining the accuracy of vehicle information in the online account for parking enforcement. This includes but is not limited to vehicle make and model, license plate number and expiration date.
During the purchase process, faculty and staff should confirm that the listed campus department and building are correct. Those who purchase an “A” permit will receive a new Garage Access Card via campus mail for use in the gated parking garages. Access to gated garages should be granted based on the permit holder’s license plate that is registered with the permit. If the license plate recognition cameras are unable to read the license plate or are inoperable, drivers should use a non-gated garage or surface lot until they receive a Garage Access Card. Garage Access Cards that were issued for 2019-20 will become invalid as of Aug. 15 and should be destroyed at that time.
Additional information about faculty and staff parking permits is available on the Parking website.
