New faculty, staff parking information

The university is preparing to make major improvements to the condition of existing surface parking lots, including repaving deteriorated asphalt, repainting parking lanes, and installing additional lighting and emergency call boxes.

At the same time, the university’s parking garages are also slated for improvements. Those include structural upgrades to stairwells and other areas, better lighting and repainting. The plan also calls for guaranteed parking for permit holders and designating additional spaces exclusively for faculty and staff near the Carolina Coliseum and the Blatt P.E. Center.

Since Vehicle Management and Parking Services receives its operating expenses from the sale of permits, fees for faculty, staff and student parking must be adjusted beginning in August to finance the $12.5 million improvement plan. More information will be provided soon about how to purchase new permits.

The upcoming fee changes include the following: 

Permit Type Old Fee Adjusted Monthly Fee
B, BW, C, CL, D, E, M, MM, N, U, X, Y 0 $20
H** 0 $20
Z 0 $12
RS $100 $110
SHC $60 $65
HC 0 $12
MC** 0 -
All Garage/Reserved Lot Parking $60 $65

** Additional information about changes to H and MC permits will be sent to permit holders at a later date.

In addition to parking improvements, the university will unveil a host of improvements this fall to the free Carolina Shuttle system, making it even more convenient to navigate campus via public transit. Please send any questions you may have about the upcoming changes to
