Reminder to register for parking

All faculty and staff are reminded to register for parking for the 2017-18 academic year. The University’s new parking registration webpage went live, Aug. 5, and parking enforcement will begin Monday, Aug. 28.

To avoid ticketing, visit the myUT portal or myparking.utoledo.edu to register. Because the parking registration webpage has been redesigned, be sure to follow the prompts or refer to the step-by-step instructions that also are available on the webpage if needed.

Employees in collective bargaining agreements have the option this year to choose between a “U” permit or an “A” permit, paying more to park in lots that have a higher demand. This selection should be made when you register your vehicle at myparking.utoledo.edu. However, these drivers are reminded to first review all information in the Frequently Asked Questions document and “Where May I Park” on the parking website to consider their options before registering as they may not change their permit type until the end of the semester.

Among several modifications being made to parking in 2017-18, all UT drivers should print a permit confirmation and display it on their dashboard whenever parking on UT property.

“This permit should be used as a reference to ensure you’re parking in a lot appropriate for your permit type,” said Sherri Kaspar, manager of public safety services.

Also new this academic year, drivers may register — and park — only one primary car at any given time; however, they may save multiple vehicles in their online profile.

“This makes it easy for you to switch from the primary vehicle you registered to another vehicle, such as your partner’s,” Kaspar explained. “Remember that when you drive a different vehicle to campus, you will need to print off the permit confirmation for that particular car so it matches the vehicle you’re parking that day.”

Parking Services’ new registration webpage was designed to be mobile-friendly and so it will provide all users a smooth interface with their smart phone, plus any other digital devices they may use. Additionally, a new UT parking app will be available soon. Watch for more details in NewsBreaks and UT News.

As a reminder, students should log on to myparking.utoledo.edu beginning Wednesday, Aug. 23, to check their parking permit type and to print their permit confirmation.

More information about UT’s new parking system is available in the Frequently Asked Questions section on utoledo.edu/parkingservices. Any questions not answered there may be sent to parking@utoledo.edu.
