The start of a new semester means it’s time to make sure your parking permit is up-to-date.
The University reminds students, faculty and staff that all vehicles on campus are required to have a permit. You may register for a parking permit by visiting the UToledo parking portal. For a tutorial on how to purchase a permit, go to the Parking and Transportation Services’ website.
Parking and Transportation Services will be distributing warnings for the “failure to register for a permit” citation through the first week of classes as students adjust to their new schedules. Beginning Saturday, Jan. 25, vehicles without a parking permit will be ticketed. The last day to cancel a permit and receive a refund is Tuesday, Feb. 4.
Student permit types are assigned based on earned credit hours and residential status. To learn more about your permit type, visit the parking permits’ web page. Note the first letter of the permit is your permit type. For example, if your permit reads “K Underclassman Commuter,” your permit type is “K.”
Alphabet letters indicating permit types are listed on signs at the entrance of each lot and on the light poles. Visit Parking and Transportation Services’ website to view a complete campus map. Yellow and white lines indicate employee and student parking. Students may park in white-lined spaces that pertain to their permit type. After 4 p.m., registered UToledo permit holders may park in most lots until 7:30 a.m. the following day. To avoid receiving a citation, always face your license plate to the drive aisle.
Four vehicles may be on the same permit. However, if both vehicles are scanned on campus during the same day and time, a ticket will be issued. To view a tutorial on how to add a vehicle to your permit, visit the parking permits’ web page.
If you are looking to leave your car at home, check out the alternative transportation methods available on campus. UToledo offers bus services and a bike-share program with a fleet that includes bicycles and tricycles, as well as tandem and hand-pedal options. For more information, visit the Parking and Transportation Services’ website.
As a reminder, Parking and Transportation Services communicates primarily through UToledo email; this includes ticket notifications. Ticket notifications will be sent to your UToledo email account if you are an active student or employee. Most violations are e-tickets and will not be placed on your vehicle. If the vehicle is not registered properly, your ticket will be sent in the mail to the registered owner of the vehicle.
