Parking Services reminds campus of spring semester guidelines

Following is information from Parking Services

Centennial Drive is a “No Parking” zone. This is a safety concern for both pedestrians and emergency vehicles. If you are picking someone up along Centennial Drive, do not stop and park on Centennial. Please pull into the next available parking lot or driveway and stay with your vehicle.

Full-time, benefited employees who selected payroll deduction as their payment method for their 2012-13 parking permits are reminded that they should return the permit to Parking Services immediately should their employment status change. Failure to return a permit may result in the remaining balance being charged to your account. If you have questions about whether or not the employment change will impact you, please contact Parking Services.

Procedures for new employees are located on our web site. Please ensure the New Employee Parking Permit Request form is completed and returned to Parking Services prior to the employee's first day on campus so the employee can obtain the necessary temporary permit: UND.edu/student-life/parking/employee-permit.cfm.

Departments are responsible for clearly disseminating parking options and regulations to their guests. To help ensure a pleasant experience for your guests while on campus, please communicate parking rules and regulations prior to the visit. The following should help to correctly advise your guests:

  • One-Day and Weekly Guest Parking passes are available for departmental purchase in booklets of 10. The information and request forms are available on our web site: UND.edu/student-life/parking/service-vehicle-permit.cfm.
  • Guests who will be responsible for their own parking needs may use the pay-as-you-go option in the Parking Ramp (corner of 2nd Avenue N and Columbia Road), the Visitor Lot (off Centennial Drive), or a parking meter. Parking in any other parking lot on-campus requires a parking pass which can be purchased directly through Parking Services, 204 Twamley Hall (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
  • Departments should submit a Special Event Form through the Safety Office for all events held on campus: UND.edu/finance-operations/environmental-health-and-safety/specialevents.cfm. The form should be submitted at least two weeks before the proposed event is scheduled to occur. Once received and reviewed, Parking Services will be in contact with the department to discuss parking arrangements.
  • Please do not send citations to Parking Services with “Guest” or “Visitor” written on them, as they will not be waived and are still considered to be valid. Parking regulation information is available on the Parking Services web site: UND.edu/student-life/parking/. Any appeal for a parking citation can be submitted through the Parking Services web site within 14 calendar days of issuance.

UND parking rules and regulations are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week and do not differ over holidays or breaks. If you still have not purchased your 2012-13 permit, please do so online in Employee Self-Service under ND HE Self-Service.

Please contact Parking Services if you require clarification on any of the parking information listed above. We are located in 204 Twamley Hall. We can be reached at und.parking@UND.edu or 777.3551.
