Parking Coordinators liaison with department employees and Transportation and Parking throughout the year to renew, assign and cancel parking based on the criteria established by the individual unit to manage parking resources. Additionally, parking coordinators are the primary contact to provide guidance and relay information to units about transportation.

Departments receive parking permits based on the allocation formula. Each department is responsible for developing and publicizing criteria for parking distribution.


Transportation and Parking (T&P) is receipt-based with authority for establishing pricing and policy per Part 6, Chapter 116-44.3–5 of NC General Statutes.

T&P works with the Advisory Committee on Transportation (ACT), which includes broad-based campus representation, to develop a 5-Year Plan that includes programmatic and financial strategies that support UNC-Chapel Hill and UNC Health transportation and parking needs. The current 5-Year Plan spans 2017-18 to 2021-22, and the planning process for the 2023-24 to 2027-28 is underway. No fee changes are recommended for 2023-2024.
