Official Parking Policy for UNC-CH Pharmacology
New Parking Policy Effective 08/04/2009
The Chairman and the Departmental Administrator’s permits are allocated
All remaining permits are assigned to individuals based on duration of
total state service, with no distinction made between Faculty and Staff.
The Administrator will exercise his or her authority to make adjustments to
this policy to ensure all tenured and tenure-track Faculty have a permit.
Thus, staff members and Research Faculty (EPA fixed-term) that are near the
bottom of the department’s total state service list may be displaced by a
tenure-track or tenured Faculty member.
Post docs will continue to receive their permits through the Department of
Public Safety and not via their home departments. Permits are drawn from a
lottery and then assigned strictly by total state service. If no assignment
is made, you can elect to be placed on a waiting list.
Graduate students will continue to be eligible to participate in the
campus-wide lottery. These permits are assigned directly from the
Department of Public Safety. Again, if no assignment is made, you can elect
to be placed on a waiting list.
Full-time employees, Post docs and students that DO NOT possess an on
campus parking assignment are eligible and encouraged to apply for a CAP
permit (Commuters Alternatives Program), which will allow you to park in
designated Park-n-Ride lots surrounding the Carrboro/Chapel Hill areas.
