SECTION 4: PURCHASING A PERMIT

ARTICLE 1 - PARKING PERMITS

Paragraph 1 -

With the exception of Conference and Events Permits, all sales of permits will be handled at Parking Services.

Paragraph 2 -

Purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a parking space.

Paragraph 3 -

An eligible person must pay their permit fee and accept the terms of agreement in the online permit purchase process before the appropriate permit will be issued. Approval by the Director of Parking Services is required for any exceptions.

Paragraph 4 -

All permit fees are set annually. Annual permits will be valid from August 1st through the Friday before Fall Move In. All expiration dates will be printed on the annual permit.

Paragraph 5 -

Arrangements may possibly be made through Parking Services to have payments deducted from faculty/staff paychecks for permits, depending on the employee's Employee Class Code.

Paragraph 6 -

All permits issued will either be hang tag or window cling permits. This will allow the owner/operator to transfer the one permit to each registered vehicle as needed. Alternatively, the owner/operator of two vehicles may purchase an additional permit at full price. Should the permit owner forget to display their annual permit on the vehicle they are currently driving, they must contact Parking Services to receive a temporary permit. Otherwise, the permit owner must purchase a daily dispenser permit or park on the street. 

Paragraph 7 -

The sharing and transferring of permits is not permitted. Likewise, permits cannot be purchased on the behalf of another person. Each permit is to be assigned to the individual who purchased the permit. If more than one member of the same family is working at and/or attending the University of Northern Colorado, he/she must purchase the additional permit at the original full price.

Paragraph 8 -

University funds are not to be used to purchase employee or student parking permits. This prohibition includes the use of agency accounts affiliated with a University department (e.g., athletics enhancement accounts). In some cases, it may be appropriate for an organization separate from the University to use its agency account to purchase parking permits for individuals who may be UNC employees or students. Examples include the Student Media Corporation, the Foundation, CSC/PASC, etc.

ARTICLE 2 - OBLIGATIONS, OWNERSHIP, REFUNDS AND GUARANTEES

Paragraph 1 –

All permits remain the property of the University of Northern Colorado at all times. The Director of Parking Services may refuse to issue a permit, determine a permit is invalid, determine a person to be ineligible for the parking privileges of the permit, or otherwise revoke or limit the use of a permit. For purposes of this paragraph, user notification may be through electronic systems, letter, or through phone or personal contact by a member of the Parking Services staff or University Police Department acting on behalf of the Director.

Paragraph 2 –

If an individual or corporation is no longer eligible for a permit, the permit must be returned to Parking Services immediately. Reasons for ineligibility include, but are not limited to, selling the vehicle, separation from UNC, abusive behavior towards Parking Services staff or their representatives, or other reason at the discretion of the Director of Parking Services.

Paragraph 3 -

Annual permit holders may physically exchange their current annual permit for a different permit type for a $10 exchange fee. All permit exchanges are final. Additionally, a replacement fee of $10 will be charged to customers who provide documentation of a car accident or theft resulting in the loss of the permit. If documentation cannot be provided, a replacement fee of $35 will be charged and the original permit will be declared as lost/stolen.

Paragraph 4 –

When a student returns a Student, Student K, Student Commuter, or Graduate Assistant permit the student will receive a credit applied to their student bill. Credits are based on a percentage of the purchase price. There are no credits for annual permits bought for use during the academic year after March 31 each year. There are no refunds for Faculty/Staff annual permits, unless the permit was fully paid for via cash or credit card on date of purchase. Permits paid for via payroll deduction must return their permit to Parking Services in order to cease payroll deductions. Any permits not returned will be billed to the permit holder. An administrative processing fee will be deducted from the amount to be credited.
