Coordinators may begin making changes to initial registration assignments beginning Jul. 22. The new permit year will begin Aug. 1 to accommodate the change to the academic calendar.

Transportation and Parking relies on department parking coordinators to serve as liaisons between Transportation and Parking and the department employees. Transportation and Parking routinely sends communications through department coordinators to share pertinent information related to transportation and parking to department employees.

Changes to employee permit assignments may be made throughout the year. Department coordinators are required to submit a request to add or cancel assignments that impact the department parking allocation. Parking coordinators are also responsible for requesting and cancelling department permits such as service, state vehicle, or official visitor permits, and are the main contact for the department related to employee parking assignments.

Changes to employee parking assignments after Jul. 29 require submission of a Parking Coordinator Form for Employees, found in Online Forms under Parking Coordinator Login. A permit cannot be issued if an employee does not register a valid license plate through Online Services. Permits are virtual and require individual customer to register valid license plate(s).

Transportation and Parking will release waitlist parking assignments for fall semester based on existing campus capacity. Waitlist releases are temporary semester assignments based on reduced campus population for fall 2020. For fall 2020, the first waitlist release will be August 28. Employees purchasing semester waitlist permits will need to be reassigned in January through the department allocation process.

Department coordinators submit requests for employees waitlist choice through the Employee Waitlist Request Form, available through the Parking Coordinator Login online forms. Employees may check waitlist status through Online Services.

  • Permanent employees receive priority on the waitlist based on the total state service date through October 31 of the academic year. Beginning November 1, date of request determines the waitlist position for permanent and temporary employees
  • Temporary and contract employees are placed on a waitlist after permanent employees based on the date of request. Parking Coordinators are responsible for adding employees to the waitlist by submitting requests
  • UNC Hospitals employees may sign up for the hospital waitlist. For additional questions, please contact the Hospital Parking and Transportation office at 984-974-1031
  • Permits released via the Waitlist are not part of the department allocation and are not automatically renewed the following permit year
  • Employee waitlist permits are released the third Friday of the following months: September, October, November, March, April and May of each year

Reduced Pricing for Commuters

In an effort to accommodate changing work and class schedules, a pricing strategy was developed to provide a reduction in cost to those who may have reduced or adjusted on-campus presence for fall 2020. 

Employees who report to campus 3 days or less are eligible for a reduced permit cost for fall 2020. Department parking coordinators are required to verify an employee’s schedule meets the criteria for a reduced cost. If an employee’s schedule reverts to more than 3 days reporting to campus, the full permit cost is applicable. 

All commuter students, regardless of schedule, who receive a permit through the student parking registration processes will receive a semester permit for fall 2020 at the commuter semester permit cost in consideration of adjusted on-campus schedules.

Measures to provide customer service approaches that incorporate community standards and limit requirements for in-person office visits include:

I am a parking coordinator, where can I find information on how to complete Annual Employee Registration?
Information on how to complete annual employee registration may be found on the Coordinator Registration Login page. Including how to login to the site and step-by-step directions for editing parking assignments.
What is a virtual permit and how does it work?
A virtual permit means that no physical permit/hang tag is required. Instead, your license plate is registered in the system and serves as your credential. License plate recognition (LPR) technology scans your plate to verify that you are credentialed to park in the lot. Individual permit holders are responsible for registering license plate(s) in Online Services. Vehicles must park with license plate visible from the travel lane of the space.
If the department does not assign parking allocations for fall 2020 due to remote working, will the allocation be affected for the spring semester or future years?
The department’s allocation will remain unchanged based on fall 2020 assignments.
If an employee is working remotely for the fall and plans to return in January, do I need to assign a permit now?
No. You can assign the permit in January so long as it remains in the department’s allocation. The employee is only required to pay for the period of time the permit is issued and parking cost is pro-rated.
How much is an annual parking permit for 2020-2021?
The recommended strategy related to a reduced teleworking price is under consideration. Any updates related to teleworking pricing reduction strategy for fall 2020-2021 will be provided following formal approval.
What if the employee is unsure of the work schedule for the fall?
Parking coordinators are encouraged to make assignments based on existing understanding of schedules. Parking coordinators may re-assign department allocations beginning Jul. 22. Employees may cancel a permit at any time. Permits cancelled before August 9 receive a full refund. Permits cancelled on or after August 10 receive a pro-rated refund.
