Weeknight Parking program on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus begins Aug. 15.

Infographic visually depicting the time and days weeknight parking will be in effect.Weeknight parking will be in effect Monday evenings through Friday mornings from 5 p.m. – 7:30 a.m. Weekend hours are 5 p.m. Friday until 7:30 a.m. Monday and parking will remain available without a permit. Events may impact lot availability; rollover lots will be provided.

Implementing weeknight parking limits the increases to daytime parking permit and patient/visitor rates. The parking system at UNC is receipt-supported. Funds from parking permits pay for the operation and maintenance of the parking system, including lots and decks, and supports fare-free local and regional transit.

The weeknight parking program is a component of Transportation and Parking’s Five-Year Plan as a funding strategy for the system.
