Online vehicle registration begins Oct. 17

Oct. 12, 2005 3:06 p.m.

Faculty and staff members will be able to register their vehicles for University parking through a convenient online form beginning Monday, Oct. 17.

The TigerCard/Parking Office is offering the online service for the first time this fall. Previously, faculty and staff were mailed paper forms that they then needed to complete and return. The new online form is user-friendly, and intended to speed up the process and avoid past problems caused by lost and illegible paper forms.

Most faculty and staff existing parking permits are due to expire Tuesday, Oct. 18. This year, the expiration date will be extended until Friday, Nov. 18, to allow time for the new process to be implemented.

Beginning Oct. 17, faculty and staff can access the renewal form through the TigerCard/Parking Office Web site. Those who register by Monday, Oct. 31, will get their permits hand-delivered to their departments. Those who register after Oct. 31 will be required to pick up their permits at the TigerCard Office on the A floor of New South.

The new parking decals will be active for three years. Lot assignments are made based on work location or campus mailing address as contained in Campus Community, the central University database.

Anyone not able to register online should contact the TigerCard/Parking Office for assistance. Those with questions may call (609) 258-3157 or (609) 258-5436; or e-mail
