2019-2020 Permit Rate Increase

Demand on the St. John’s campus for parking spaces has continued to grow, while the fee charged for parking does not encourage members of the university community to avail of alternative, more environmentally friendly forms of transportation. In addition, the rates are the lowest of 17 other universities, the Signal Hill campus, and locations in downtown St. John’s.

At the July 6, 2017 meeting of the Board of Regents, the Board approved two principles related to parking. First, the university administration should take steps to address the heavily subsidized parking rates currently charged to faculty, staff and students. Second, the university administration should stop constructing new parking spaces on campus (surface and garage) – until at least such a time as parking provisions adhere to a cost recovery model and/or alternative public transportation modes are put into effect.

In alignment with these principles, The Board of Regents approved a permit rate increase for faculty, staff and students effective May 1, 2019. These rates still do not recover all costs associated with space maintenance, but are a step toward a cost recovery model. These new rates apply to 2019/2020 permits. Renewals will begin April 1, 2019 and run until April 30, 2019. CUPE staff will be renewed at the existing 2018/2019 rates, as outlined in the current Collective Agreement.

Faculty and staff permits will be renewed for the same location as their current 2018/2019 permit. Permit holders may request to be added to a different location via the waitlist process. This can be completed during the payroll renewal process or by emailing Employees will be contacted to move lots if space is available, and permit rates will be adjusted at that time.

The renewal period for faculty and staff parking permits is April 1 to 30, 2019, inclusive.
