Faculty and Staff FAQ's

Can I return my parking permit?

Campus and Memorial Union parking lots remain open. The university has decided to suspend the parking refund policy for faculty and staff during the COVID-19 emergency. This means you cannot receive a prorated refund or stop your payroll deduction for returning parking permits unless you end your employment at the university.
