Q:  How do I pay each month?

A:  When you sign up for parking you will complete a payroll deduction form with your online application to authorize parking to be deducted monthly from your pay.

Q:  Can I pay for more than one month at a time?

A:  Parking is payroll deduction and will be deducted monthly. However, if you do not qualify for a payroll deduction you will need to pay by credit card, check or cash online with credit card or in the parking office each month or set up your parking account to auto pay each month by adding your credit card to your account AND to your permit. You will be allowed to pay for multiple months at once if you prefer. 

Q:  What if I don’t want to sign up now but decide I want to a later date?

A:  Parking can be arranged at any time.

Q:  What if I want to change the type of permit I have?

A:  To change the type of permit that you hold, follow the renewal process and fill out the form online.  For faculty and staff who are on payroll deduction you will need to also fill out a new Payroll Deduction form that reflects the change in your monthly fees.

Q: How does Reserved Parking work on campus?

A:  Reserved parking is located in designated areas of surface lots and in the Henderson Parking structure for those who want closer parking.  Reserved spaces are not assigned and the permit is "virtually" assigned to a vehicle's license plate at the time you sign up for the permit.  We select the number of spaces for this program based on supply and demand, thus ensuring that space is always available for those who wish to use this option.  These permits are non-transferable and cannot be loaned, leased, or borrowed in any way from one person to another.  It is the responsibility of the permit holder to keep their parking account and vehicle information up to date for this reason.

Q:  How do I cancel my parking?

A:  You must notify the parking office in advance of your intent to cancel parking.  If you do not notify the Parking Office you will continue to be billed. Refunds for parking not cancelled can only be for the current month and the one month prior. It is the parkers responsibility to cancel your parking.

Q: I need to sign up for parking but I cannot get there my first day on campus. What should I do?  

A: You can pay daily and park in a visitor parking lot. We can refund you for the prior 2 days from your sign-up date of parking payments made in visitor’s lots (exception is No refunds for people signing up for Rock lot parking). You must provide the parking receipts as proof of payment and they must be dated within the time you are purchasing parking. The license plate on these receipts must match the vehicle on your parking application. THIS IS OFFERED TO FIRST TIME NEW ACCOUNTS ONLY.  PREVIOUS PARKERS DO NOT QUALIFY.

You may also pull a ticket in the Henderson Garage and come to the Parking Office to pay that same day.  Bring the ticket with you and we will allow you to exit that day without having to pay.

Q:  Do I get a parking access card for my car?

A:   Parking access is added to your University ID. Upon entering the gate to the parking lot simply present your ID to the reader. The gate will open.  If you have active parking and the gate does not open, parking in a visitor surface lot and Do NOT PAY. You must call the parking office with your name, plate information so we can place a Do Not Ticket on your vehicle. Failure to call and provide this information can lead to a citation that you will need to pay.

Q:  What if I have more than one vehicle that I will drive?

A:   Notify the Parking Office of any additional vehicles by email cuparking@cuanschutz.edu or call. They will be added to your account. However only one vehicle may be present in the permit lots at a time.

Q:  What if my friend and I want to share parking?

A:  Carpool parking is available. All carpool participants must be registered in the carpool and each participant is responsible for a partial payment of the carpool. You will receive a carpool parking card.  The parking access will not be on your ID Badge.  The carpool ‘card’ will allow for 24/7 access to all permit lots.  Carpool participants’ individual IDs can be activated to allow the after hours parking at no additional charge.   

Q: What do I do about parking if I forgot my ID Badge?

A:  You should park in a visitor parking surface lot and notify the Parking Office immediately. Please DO NOT PAY for parking as we will issue you a Do Not Ticket for the day. They will verify your account and you will not be issued a citation that day. Failure to call and provide this information can lead to a citation that you will need to pay.

Q:  I arrive later in the morning to campus - what if I cannot find a space?

A:  There is more than adequate parking available on campus for the permit holders. 

However, sometimes the most desirable parking space may not be close your destination so you will need to park in a different gated lot.

Q: Are there any general guidelines to having permit parking?

A:  Following a few of these simple parking rules and regulations will help to ensure you do not experience difficulties when entering or exiting the parking lots.  

Allow only one vehicle per card access into the parking lot.  Following too close or “tailgating” into a parking lot behind another vehicle will cause in difficulties or delays upon trying to exit. 

If the gate will not open when you present your ID badge please do not try to push the gate open manually but rather park in a visitor lot and immediately notify the Parking Office of your dilemma.  If you are already in the parking lot and trying to exit please call the Parking number posted at every exit.

Use only the designated drive paths in and out of parking lots.  Other methods could potentially damage landscape areas, curbs and/or sidewalks.  

Park within the designated lines of the parking lot to help maximize the use of the parking spaces for everyone on campus.   

Aisle ways and rows are designed to allow a safe flow of traffic in and out of the parking lot. The widths also allow emergency vehicles when necessary.  For these reasons, please do not park at the ends of rows or aisle ways.

Your parking access is assigned to your ID badge only and is intended for your use exclusively. 

If you are ever unsure about a parking issue contact the Parking Office right away.

For additional information please email the Parking Office cuparking@cuanschutz.edu or give us a call. Please leave a voicemail if we do not answer or you are calling after hours.
