The area around the highrises is being updated and will be known as “South Village.” The transformation of this area will include:
These changes will bring new amenities and services to the South side of campus. Unfortunately, disruptions and temporary inconvenience will be required during the construction phase.
Building projects for the South side of campus will eliminate approximately 2/3 of the spaces near the highrise residence halls
Spaces have been taken off-line in phases since the first of the year, but after commencement through academic year 2012-2013, parking will be severely restricted around the highrise residence halls. As a result, Lots 8, 8A and MSU will have specific permits for those lots and only upperclassmen assigned to the highrises will be allowed to purchase those permits.
Upperclassmen assigned to the highrises may purchase a parking permit for Lot 8 (between Holshouser and Scott) Lot 8A (between Scott and Moore) and Lot MSU (between Sanford and Moore)
Permits for Lot 8 (Resident Permit 8L), Lot 8A (Resident Permit 8A) and Lot MSU (Resident Permit MSU) will be available for online purchase. Parking and Transportation Services will be provided with the names of residents who qualify to purchase those permits. They will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
If someone not on the list attempts to buy one of those zoned permits, their purchase will automatically change to a regular Resident permit or the type of permit for which they are eligible.
Freshmen assigned to the highrise residence halls will have to park in North Deck
The University realizes how inconvenient this will be so, until the new South Village Parking Deck is completed, there will be shuttle service from North Deck to the highrises from 7:30 AM until 2:00 AM Monday through Friday and 8:00 AM until 2:00 AM Saturday and Sunday (except for breaks and holidays when there are no classes.)
Incoming freshmen assigned to Sanford, Moore, Scott and Holshouser Halls should seriously consider not bringing a car onto campus if it all possible
For times when you’d like to have a car to drive, UNC Charlotte’s car sharing program through Hertz on Demand provides three vehicles on campus to rent by the hour. Two Nissan Altima hybrids are available for $9.50/hr or choose a Chevrolet Equinox for $10.50/hr; price includes gas and insurance for the vehicle. (More information about Hertz on Demand car sharing.)
Expect additional notification as more information and changes to construction timelines become known
Parking and Transportation Services will also post updates on Twitter (@unccparking) and on the PaTS website.
