Faculty, staff and commuting students who reside outside the parking perimeter are encouraged to secure a Carpool parking permit.
Each member of a carpool must complete a permit application at the Parking Services Office (Please note: student and first time employee carpool registrants must come in to the Parking Services office together). One transferable Carpool permit will be issued per carpool. This permit must be displayed by hanging it over the interior rearview mirror of the vehicle so that the front of the permit is facing the windshield.
Carpools of three or more people will receive a 10% discount on the total permit price.
Employee carpools can be for Pearson, central, gray, gold, red or gate-controlled parking. Gate-control carpools are given wait list preference. Each employee member of a carpool will be given 40 gold day passes each for an annual carpool. Partial year carpools will receive a prorated number of passes.
Commuting student carpools can be for red, gold, gray, central, or gate controlled parking at the Center for the Arts Garage. They can be purchased by the academic year or annual year (gate-controlled parking is only sold by the academic year). Each student member of an academic year carpool will receive 20 day passes each. Partial year carpools will receive a prorated number of day passes.
The Parking Services Office must be notified whenever an individual withdraws from a carpool to determine if the carpool membership has to be restructured to maintain eligibility for the carpool permit.
A daily permit must be utilized whenever it becomes necessary for a member of a carpool to drive to campus in his or her own vehicle. Daily permits are issued at the time the permit is issued or can be obtained at the Parking Services Office.
An individual cannot register concurrently for a parking permit and also as a member of a carpool. Such dual permit registration is considered fraudulent.
