The start of a new semester means it’s time to purchase or renew your parking permit.
The University reminds students, faculty and staff that spring semester parking permits must be purchased by the last day to add or drop classes for the semester, which is Monday, Jan. 23. After that date, vehicles without a parking permit will be ticketed. Jan. 23 also is the deadline to cancel a permit and receive a refund.
To purchase a parking permit, visit myparking.utoledo.edu, log in with your UTAD credential, and select the “apply for a permit” option.
If you need to change the vehicle you drive to UT any time during the semester, you can update your license plate number and vehicle information for your permit on the parking system.
Guest permits for family and friends visiting on weekdays are available at guestparking.utoledo.edu.
The Office of Public Safety and Support Services also has updated its website to include a list of parking lot closings for special events, such as basketball games, so that drivers may plan ahead. Visit utoledo.edu/publicsafety/support-services.
As a reminder, parking area 11 on Main Campus near the Thompson Student Union is a metered lot, accepting credit cards and coins. Paying by credit card offers the convenience of adding time without revisiting the meter outside, with an extend-by-phone tool in the lot’s new meter technology.
Nearly 5,000 faculty, staff and students responded to the University-wide parking survey late last year. Results are being evaluated to help establish a new parking system that will provide more choices for the UT community and help to alleviate congestion in the busiest lots. The system will be operational by fall semester.
The Office of Public Safety will provide ongoing updates throughout the semester on the move to a new parking system.
