New Electronic Vehicle Charging Stations in Bostwick Parking Ramp

September 5, 2018

ChargePoint logo for EV charging stations

Two new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations are available for staff, student, and visitor use within the Bostwick Parking Ramp.  The staff charging station is located near the staff parking entrance off Fountain NE.  The student/visitor station is located near the Bostwick NE ramp entrance.  Each station is able to accommodate two cars at a time on adjacent parking spaces.  Only electric vehicles that are using the charging stations may park in the designated spots which are painted green.

The EV charging stations are fully managed by ChargePoint, one of the world’s largest EV charging networks. Support is available 24/7 from ChargePoint either through the app or the support number listed on the station’s interactive screen. For additional information, and to use the station, drivers simply download the ChargePoint mobile app and sign up for a free ChargePoint account. Full details on how to access EV charging stations through ChargePoint can be found at the ChargePoint website including training videos and FAQs.  (www.chargepoint.com)

The cost to use an EV station is 15 cents per kilowatt hour. In order to use a station, you must have a ChargePoint account. In addition to station usage fee, users must have a valid parking permit or pay the designated parking fees. To ensure that access is available to as many users as possible, vehicles using the charging stations must be moved to a regular parking space within the Bostwick Ramp or exit the ramp when fully charged. When the vehicle is charged, ChargePoint will send the user a notification that the car is charged, and that they have 30 minutes to move the vehicle. After the 30 minute time period the user will be charged $1.00 per hour.

If the EV charging stations in the Bostwick Parking Ramp are highly utilized, more stations will be considered in the future.

DeVos Campus Parking Changes

August 17, 2018

The DeVos Campus parking project is complete and is now fully operational.  Improvements include a dedicated walkway for students from Prospect Street, stormwater capture behind Sneden, a new entrance & exit from Fulton Street, and new equipment.

The main student/public entrance is still off Fountain, but an additional entrance/exit has been added off Fulton Street. The Fulton Street gate is equipped with two readers, so that it can be used by students and employees. Guests to the campus can also use that entrance by pulling a ticket.

Please note that due to the equipment change, the green guest parking passes will no longer work on the DeVos Campus. If you host events or meetings on the DeVos campus and intend to provide parking passes, you will need to obtain new exit passes, which are white.

Also, in order to better control the surface lot north of the Administration building, that will now be a “permit required” lot. If you are a frequent visitor to the Administration Building, you will need to have your GRCC parking permit visible in your vehicle. If you no longer have your hanging tag, please contact Campus Police. We will be implementing a guest parking permit process for guests to the Administration building.   Please direct guests and community members visiting Sneden or White Hall to use the Sneden lot, entering from Fountain or Fulton Streets.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility this summer!
