Advances in technology and aging equipment prompted these changes to visitor parking on campus. Now, instead of taking a ticket upon entering the lot and paying when they leave, visitors pay upon arrival at automated kiosks strategically located near lot entrances and exits. No more waiting in line to exit and no more worries about lost tickets. You can pay for a single hour or the entire day. Guests simply enter their license plate number and swipe a credit card and they are set. They can even add time to their parking session from a cell phone so there is no need to rush out to feed a meter.
Commuter Services is installing the same parking kiosk system in the Campus Store pay lot to replace the gates and the attendants. The kiosks will function as the point of contact for purchasing and validating parking for guests and visitors to campus.
There will be three main changes as a result of the new kiosk system:
- There will no longer be spitter tickets or pay lot attendants, rather customers will purchase their desired time through the kiosk using their license plate and credit card.
- Sticker validations will no longer be valid in any visitor lot. Instead, departments may purchase “coupon codes” for their visitors.
- The Campus Store will still provide validations for patrons. Parking fees must be paid in advance at the kiosks, a printed receipt must be taken into the store, and one hour of the parking fee will be reimbursed at the time of purchase.
Remember, kiosks work similarly to a parking meter and payment or a validation must be made to initiate a parking session, not when leaving the pay lot. Vehicles parked in a pay lot with no valid form of payment will be ticketed.
The new kiosks will be installed and operational on August 14, 2017.
University departments that want to purchase coupon codes or trade in sticker validations should complete an order form and allow 24-48 hours for processing.
Commuter Services will have parking lot attendants on hand for the first three weeks to help answer questions and explain the new process. Additionally, you can watch this short video explaining the process.
