Reducing the Price of Parking Permits
Friday, July 24, 2020
We are just a few weeks away from beginning the fall semester and we’ve gotten a lot of suggestions and questions about changing the price of parking permits, given that so many of you will not be coming to campus daily.
It was a good point and the team at UTEP has sought to find a financially viable solution.
We’re going to significantly reduce the cost of student parking permits for the entire 2020-21 academic year. You can see the table of discounts below.
Here’s an important point, though. To do this, we have to reduce the Miner Metro Shuttle Service. The shuttles will be reduced to one route that will travel to and from Miner Canyon student housing only. All other routes will be out of service. Please keep that in mind when you select a parking permit location.
These changes go into effect today and apply to every student who already purchased a permit or plans to purchase one for the 2020-21 academic year. The new pricing only applies to student parking permits – not faculty or staff.
The chart below shows the new prices for 2020-21 student parking permits:
|STUDENT PERMITS||Full Price||New Price|
|Sun Bowl Parking Garage (SBG)||$400.00||$200.00|
|Schuster Parking Garage (SCG)||$400.00||$200.00|
|Glory Road Parking Garage (GRG)||$300.00||$150.00|
|Inner Campus (IC) Orange / ADA||$250.00||$200.00|
|Evening (4 to 8 p.m.)||$150.00||$50.00|
Students who purchased a 2020-21 permit before the price change will see the new price reflected on their Banner account.
If you decide that you will not need a parking permit you already purchased, you can request a refund by filling out this form by Aug. 31, 2020, to receive a full refund. Any refund requests received after Aug. 31 will be eligible for a partial refund.
