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.
