A campus-wide parking fee designed to raise funds for improved parking at the university will go into effect at UNLV on Sept. 1.
University faculty and staff will pay $60 for annual permits; students will pay $30 for annual permits. Permits are also available for nine months (August-May) or may be purchased by the semester, month, week, or day. The daily fee is $2 for all categories except motorcycle parking, which is $1. Visitor permits are $2 per day or $5 per week.
Free parking is available in the Green Lot of the Thomas and Mack Center. Permits are not required in metered spots, but vehicles with permits that are parked in metered spots must use the meter.
No additional permit is required for vehicles parked in designated handicap spots and bearing handicap permits issued by the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles or the cities of Las Vegas, Henderson, or North Las Vegas.
According to John Amend, associate vice president for administration, the funds raised by the fee will be used to build a much-needed campus parking garage. "Sometime between October and January we will know how much revenue the fee will generate, and that will give us an idea of when we can build a parking garage," he said.
Following is a list of annual fees for various parking categories:
--Faculty/Staff (student lots) $30
--Residence Hall Student $30
--Visitor (Daily or weekly only)
Permits will be available starting Aug. 14 at the UNLV Department of Public Safety, Artemus Ham Concert Hall Box Office, and Moyer Student Union.
Parking regulations and campus parking maps are available at the Department of Public Safety. For additional information, please call the department's parking division at 895-1300.
