Electric Vehicle Parking

Starting August 6, 2023 there will no longer be an Electric Vehicle (EV) permit option. The university will be switching over to a reduced rate ParkMobile pay as you go model. Anyone with an EV can pay to use the spaces if they need to charge. The rate will be $.50 an hour for the first four hours and then increases to $4/an hour if more time is needed. 

Community members are still required to purchase either a reserved or general parking permit and park according to the permit when not charging.
