ATTENTION ALL FACULTY AND STAFF

WE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY IN THE PURCHASE OF YOUR PARKING PERMIT!

You may purchase your parking permit through a payroll deduction. IRS regulations have changed so that this deduction will happen before federal and state taxes are calculated thus reducing your taxes and increasing your net pay. Payroll deduction forms can be filled out when obtaining the permit at parking services.

A SUGGESTION

The UPD, on average, unlock 350 cars a year for those who have locked themselves out of their vehicle.  As technology advances, our ability to open many models is decreasing.  Please bring two sets of keys to school and keep a set at your residence or carry them on your person.  It may save you the cost of a locksmith.
