Parking permits for the 2018-19 academic year will be available for purchase through mypark.uncc.edu beginning July 1, 2018, and will reflect a 3 percent rate increase.
Here’s why rates are going up
While the cost of a UNC Charlotte parking permit remained static for four years, operating and administrative costs continued to rise. Additionally, PaTS committed more than $24 million last year to provide additional services for the campus community. The funds for these projects came from reserves that must be replenished to be able to keep pace with University growth. Read more about how parking funds are used on the PaTS website.
The last time permit rates increased was 2013-2014, when prices rose 8 percent. This year’s 3 percent increase, approved by the Board of Trustees, changes the cost of a regular, annual permit from $450 to $465. For more information, please review the permit types and price list.
Discount remote parking at North Deck
The Student Government Association asked PaTS to consider a discount parking option for North Deck. The idea was approved and will be available to commuter students this fall. An annual permit to park in North Deck only will be $350. Quantity is limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Commuters also have the option of discount remote parking in Lot 6A (on the north corner of John Kirk and Cameron) and Lot 27 (near Harris Alumni House). Learn more about permit types and prices on the PaTS website.
Parking at Center City building
Fall semester parking at the Center City building (CCB) will continue to require a window decal until the new parking deck, operated by Preferred Parking, is open. If you had CCB parking privileges last year and will need them again this fall, please retain your 2017-18 CCB decal when purchasing your 2018-19 permit; current parking permissions will transfer. Those needing CCB parking for the first time will receive a new decal via U.S. mail at the permanent address on file in Banner if requested by July 31. After that date, the decal will be available for pick up at the CCB building (please allow 48 hours for the decal to be processed and available).
More to come! Look for an email update on the opening date for the Union Deck expansion and the fall parking and traffic outlook later this summer.
