The Truth about UNC Charlotte Parking Permits (updated for Fall 2013)

Date Published: 
July 22, 2013

When parking permits prices for academic year 2013-2014 were announced in May, there were plenty of comments — seen on Twitter and heard elsewhere — from those annoyed about another annual price increase. That's understandable. No one likes paying more, especially when they don’t understand why a product or service costs what it does.

So, why does it cost so much to park on campus?

Date Published: 
June 20, 2013

If you’ve driven on campus this summer, you may have noticed new signs for all parking lots and decks. The design goal of the new signage was simple: be clear and easily recognized by daily users and visitors alike. The design process though, was anything but simple.

Parking Permit rates for 2013-2014 announced

Date Published: 
May 2, 2013

Permit rates for 2013-2014 are set and have been approved by the UNC Charlotte Board of Trustees. First, the unpleasant news: permit prices will rise again this year, by about 8%

One bright spot for non-resident students with compressed Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday schedules: new Commuter permit options have been added in response to their requests. Class schedules have created enough of these students to justify offering Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday permits for purchase by the semester.

Attending Spring Fest this Sunday?

Date Published: 
April 24, 2013

Student Affairs has programmed an event that looks to be a great one! In support of that, and to ensure that no sour notes are hit due to parking citations, Parking and Transportation Services reminds you that unless you have a special permit specific to Lots 8 (in front of Scott and Holshouser), 8A (between Moore and Scott), and Lot MSU (by Moore, Sanford and RDH), you cannot park there. Sorry, not even on weekends. Students who qualified for 8, 8A and MSU permits were promised parking, therefore that area is always enforced. So please, park elsewhere where your permit is allowed.

How campus dining is changing on college campuses nationally, and here at UNC Charlotte

In the early days of the Residence Dining Hall (RDH), students slid trays down a cafeteria line where food that had been cooked in the “back of the house” was plopped onto a Melamine plate from an ice cream scoop. Ketchup went a long way to rehydrate a square of meatloaf and Lance crackers from the vending machine were the only available alternative. There was no such thing as DB to spend at retail brands located elsewhere on campus. There were no retail brands.
