Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
RIT has several areas with Level II Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. The stations are located in D Lot, M Lot, and T Lot. At this time, there is no fee to use these charging stations, however, RIT community members must purchase a Multi Lot reserve permit to utilize the charging units. The parking spaces associated with the charging stations are considered reserved parking spaces and have been designated as such.
Visitors to RIT may use the Electric Vehicle Charging stations but must first stop at the Welcome Center for a permit in order to utilize the charging stations.
Resident Students may use the Electric Vehicle Charging stations between the hours of 5 pm - 5 am on weekdays and any time on the weekends provided they have a valid RIT Parking Permit (Res. Hall, Riverknoll, Perkins Green, Colony Manor, University Commons, Global Village, or After Hours). Students are not permited to trickle charge electric vehicles at their apartment complex.
RIT requests that electric car users limit their charging time to four hours maximum so that others can have access to them. The four hour limitation will be enforced. If needing to move your car, it can be parked in the same reserve area of the lot with the charging station, just not in those spaces so others can utilize the chargers.
Here are Eight Rules of EV Charging Etiquette that we recommend everyone follow. Some of the charging stations are associated with the Chargepoint network and a Chargepoint card and account are necessary to activate the charging unit. No fee is associated with registering with Chargepoint for use of the RIT charging units.
