We are committed to delivering services in an efficient and friendly manner. Services we offer include permit sales, parking enforcement, alternative transportation programs, planning and scheduling maintenance and repair of all existing parking lots, emergency jump starts, and vehicle lockout entry. Over the next several years, the campus community will see a greater focus on maintenance and repair of existing lots along with a prioritized re-design effort focused on the expansion of existing parking spaces within the same footprint allotted for parking today. We will also be focused on the development of additional alternative transportation programs.
