Parking permit sales begin; rates unchanged

Sales of campus parking permits for the 2017-18 fiscal and academic year will begin April 17. All permit options are priced the same as last year.

“We are extremely pleased to keep costs for permits unchanged,” said Dan Carpenter, director of parking and transit services. “We are looking at increasing other revenue sources to cover our operating and maintenance expenses.”

Hourly rates for City Campus parking meters and garage access will increase by 25 cents to $1.25 on July 1. For more information about meter and garage rates, click here.

Permits for students, faculty and staff are available for annual and nine-month coverage.

Online sales begin April 17. Complete permit options, costs and online purchase are available online.

In-person permit sales begin June 1 for faculty and staff and July 3 for students. Permits will be available at the Parking and Transit Services office, 625 Stadium Drive, Suite A. For in-person purchase, complete and bring the application form to the parking office.

Permits for on campus resident parking should be based on the housing unit selected. Purchase a surface lot parking permit based on housing unit as follows:

  • Harper Schramm Smith and Village Complex, R01

  • Kauffman, R01 or R02

  • Abel Sandoz, R02 or R03

  • Courtyards, R02 or R03

New annual permits must be displayed beginning July 1 and nine-month permits must be displayed beginning Aug. 14.

New university/StarTran bus passes are also available. Free bus passes will be distributed to students in August, funded by student transit fees. Bus passes for faculty and staff who purchase parking permits are available, on request, at no additional cost. Bus passes can also be purchased separately.

Applicants must update vehicle registration with new license plate during the coming year. A parking permit registered with the wrong license will be invalid. Reminder: all Nebraska vehicles receive new plates in 2017.

To update your license plate information, access the Online Parking Service Account, enter the new registration information by adding a new vehicle and delete the old listing.
