Official Parking Policy for UNC-CH Pharmacology

New Parking Policy Effective 08/14/2013

The Chairman is allocated first.

All remaining permits are assigned first to tenured and tenure-track faculty and then to other permanent staff based on the duration of total state service. There is no distinction made between EPA research faculty and SPA staff. The Director will exercise his or her authority to make adjustments to this policy as needed to ensure all tenured and tenure-track faculty have a permit. Thus, staff members and research faculty (EPA fixed-term) that are at or near the bottom of the department’s total state service list may be displaced by a tenure-track or tenured faculty member.

Postdocs 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. Postdocs are only eligible for the CD and S11 zones.

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.

All full-time employees, postdocs 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. Beginning in 2013, there is a nominal fee for using the town-owned lots. These permits cost $250 and can be obtained directly from the towns of Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
