Blue Parking Pilot Program

The Campus Parking and Traffic Advisory Committee is pleased to continue the opportunity for faculty and staff to park in the University Pavilion Ramp through the Blue Parking Pilot Program.

Forty-two (42) spaces on the second level of the University Pavilion Ramp have been designated as Blue Parking; special permits are required to utilize these spaces. A total of forty-two (42) permits will be sold.

During periods of Open Parking, only Blue Parking permit holders will be eligible to park in Blue Parking designated spaces. Faculty and staff may park in unmarked spaces in any parking ramp or flat lot owned or operated by the University during Open Parking.

The fee for the Blue Parking Permit is a flat $30 per month. No additional fees will be charged. Permit holders have the option to withdraw from the program at any time.

All faculty and staff are eligible to apply for the Blue Parking permit.  Permits will be issued through an application process on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications to participate in the pilot program will be accepted August 13-31, 2018.

The Campus Parking and Traffic Advisory Committee will monitor and assess the pilot and reserves the right to make adjustments to or terminate the Blue Parking pilot program. The committee will evaluate the program and make a recommendation regarding its formal implementation no later than May 31, 2019.

Those withdrawing from the pilot must return the Blue Parking Permit to DPS. Rates will not be prorated mid-month; if an employee withdraws in the middle of the month, they will be charged for the full month. The regular fee of $12.50 will apply starting the first of the next month.   

The Campus Parking and Traffic Advisory Committee unanimously approved the original Blue Parking Pilot Program on 7/19/17. On 5/15/18 the committee voted to extend the pilot one additional year.
