Faculty/Staff refunds for Parking Permit due to telework

Refunds for Faculty/Staff Parking Permits for Spring 2020

Questions regarding refunds for Faculty/Staff Parking Permits due to telework have been circulating campus due to the University providing refunds for the majority of student parking permits. (Those students still on campus will not receive refunds.)

Faculty/Staff Parking Permits

Faculty/staff permits differ from student permits in that they are charged month-to-month for a 12-month period through payroll deduction rather than being valid all academic year like the student permits (Aug-May). As such, this is the basis for there being no blanket refund for faculty/staff permit like being considered for student permits.
