Student Commuter - Reduced Cost Parking Permit

The University was looking for a way to offer student commuters who may not have the opportunity to use the Park and Ride locations, a reduced cost alternative.  Here it is:

A designated area for student commuters in LOT J behind Laker Village will serve as a remote parking area starting in the Fall 2013.  This remote area will accommodate 300 student commuters with a reduced cost option for parking on campus.  The permit will only be good for the designated area and will not be valid in any other lots on the Allendale or Pew Campus.  The cost for this student commuter permit will be $50 per semester (Fall and Winter) and will not be discounted for part-time students. 

The new student commuter LOT J parking permits will go on sale July 1st at 8 am and will be sold on a first come first serve basis.  The permits will only be available for sale over-the-counter at the Police Department.  Due to the limited number of permits being issued, they will not be available online. 

A waitlist for those students interested in the permit will be created and will expire following the University’s return for refund schedule which ends on September 21, 2013.  Should permits become available for students on the waitlist, they will be sold through the end of September.  The permits will not be offered at a discounted rate to students on the waitlist.

For additional questions feel free to contact GVPD at 616-331-3255.
