August 2009 Visitor Parking Information for Faculty and Their Guests

Summary: August 2009
Visitor Parking Information for Faculty and Their Guests
For those of you who have visited campus in the past, there will no longer be attendants
at any of the campus visitor surface lots nor parking coupons that can be validated.
The Department of Transportation Services has now installed multi-space pay stations.
The closest visitor lot to CS offices is located across from the A.V. Williams Bldg.
Visitors may park in a lot marked "visitor parking". Spaces will be numbered and the
visitor will enter that number into the machine (pay station) along with the amount of
time the person specifies for his/her parking duration. These machines will accept
payment by cash or credit card. No refunds on time are available and the machine
does not provide change (example: The cost for one hour is $3 but if the visitor uses
a $5 bill, the machine will not give $2 dollars change. The exact amount is needed
when using cash for payment. The machine does not accept a $20 bill.) If a visitor
plans to spend the day and selects 5+ hours (all day parking) and pays $15, the visitor
should not leave his/her space for lunch or for any other purpose. If one does so and
returns to the lot, payment for the new space must be made. The lots are patrolled and
tickets will be issued for cars whose time has expired. When driving into the lot, you will
not be able to determine if time remains in any given space.
Parking meters (if you can find one that is available) are cheaper than visitor lots, $2 vs
$3 per hour. However, the number of meters has been decreased from 500 to
