Parking Reminder for Employees

January 4, 2016

We are noticing an increasing number of employees parking in student parking. All employees who have requested on campus parking, are assigned a parking area, accessible by using a RaiderCard (Admin Bldg lot and Spectrum lot excluded). Please park ONLY in staff parking. If you choose to park in the student/public parking areas, you are expected to pay the public rate to exit. Employees should not be using departmental parking passes, nor should employees be parking in student parking then “crossing over” to exit on the staff side with their RaiderCards. To keep it simple, employees should be swiping into our lots and swiping out of the lots. If you had to pull a ticket to get in to the lot, you should not be parking there. Obviously, a one time (“because I couldn’t find my RaiderCard”) incident is not the concern. Some employees just find student parking more convenient to their work spaces.

Please respect our students and allow them the ability to park on our campus as they return for the Winter Semester. Thank you for your cooperation.
