- About Us
University employees should contact the Transportation & Parking Coordinator for their department to request a parking permit. UNC Hospitals’ employees should contact the Hospital Parking Office at 919-966-1031. Temporary and contract employees should contact the unit/department that employs them for information on parking availability.
Parking resources are allotted by utilizing the UNC Parking Allocation Formula to determine how many parking permits are distribute among over two hundred separate departments. The allocation system does not determine who will get permits: It determines only how many permits will be available to each department. The Allocation Formula system is designed to equitably allocate permits to each department.
Departments are required to develop criteria for permit issuance within their unit that is most suitable to their mission and operations. The Departmental Parking Policies provide specific information for each department’s parking assignment guidelines. All departments with campus parking allocations are required to post/update their department allocation policy on the Transportation & Parking website. Each department has an assigned Transportation and Parking Coordinator to assist employees with commuting options.
Check the Parking Permit Map to view zone designations for lots. Permit designations may also have to do with specific permit types that allow special access that include mornings/afternoons only, reserved, or access to all lots. The permit types have specific requirements for issuance and require special approval. Employee parking permits are generally valid in the designated zone, Monday – Friday, 7:30 am until 5:00 pm. Parking lots are often reserved for Event Parking after regular business hours and permits are normally not valid during these times.
To access the EV stations, users must pay the established parking fees during posted hours of operation for visitors, employees and students. Employees and students have the option to upgrade their assigned permit and purchase a $250 annual permit for unlimited charging access. All users have the option to pay an additional $0.75 per hour for the use of the EV stations on an as needed basis. Vehicles should be relocated as soon as possible following a charge to allow other users to access the stations. To use the stations, register with ChargePoint or purchase the annual permit at the Public Safety building at 285 Manning Drive.
