Getting to your office on game day, lowering your parking costs and more 

With fall semester right around the corner, we’ve compiled some tips to help faculty and staff navigate parking changes on campus, such as ensuring your hangtag arrives on time, saving out-of-pocket parking costs and getting to your office on game day.

1. Avoid tickets by ordering your hangtag by Aug. 9 — Current decals expire Aug. 15. To make sure your hangtag arrives on time — and to avoid being ticketed — register your vehicle online by Aug. 9. If you order a hangtag after that time, make sure to print the temporary parking pass, valid for 10 business days, and display it on your dashboard.

2. Use payroll deduction to pay for hangtag fees — You do not have to pay for your hangtag at the time you register your vehicle. By selecting the “payroll deduction” option — available to all faculty and staff — the cost of your hangtag will be deducted from your paycheck for 12 months (24 pay periods for 12-month employees) and 9 months (18 pay periods for 9-month employees). For a regular $120 hangtag, that amounts to about $5 per paycheck (over 12 months).

3. You can save money with pre-tax deduction — By selecting the “payroll deduction” option during registration, you’ll qualify for a pre-tax deduction, which takes out parking fees from your income before taxes. This reduces your taxable income and lowers your out-of-pocket parking cost.  Plus, you can still do the 12-month or 9-month payroll deduction so you are paying just a few dollars per paycheck.

4. Reserved parking will begin Aug. 15 — If you’ve purchased a reserved parking stall, you will be able to park in the spot beginning Aug. 15.  Your reserved hangtag will allow parking in the designated spot from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Spots are not reserved on game days or weekends.

5. What if you need to work in the office or lab on game days?  — Faculty/Staff and Reserved hangtags are not valid for parking on campus on game days. To access your office or lab on game days, please have your department head contact the Department of Parking and Transportation as far in advance as possible.

6. Avoid frustration for your visitors and guests who come to campus for events or meetings — Planning a lecture or on-campus event? All campus guests will be required to have permits, so make sure to contact the Department of Parking and Transportation in advance to arrange for event parking.
