Opt-out of payroll deduction by Aug. 10, 2021

Staff and faculty pay for their parking spaces through payroll deduction. If you do not plan to park a car on campus, you must take action to prevent a payroll deduction. Email to notify campus you are opting-out of the parking payroll deduction. Notice must be received by Aug. 10, 2021.

Parking Enforcement

Warnings will be issued until Sept. 1. After Sept. 1 enforcement will begin with a ticket, then a boot, then on the third offense, the vehicle will be towed.

Three tips to avoid enforcement actions:

  1. Plan ahead.
  2. Students should review the Student Parking Map before coming to campus to know where to park. There is no parking for students on Kenan Drive, D, E, G, or J lots. These were locations of a significant volume of student parking violations last year and the most number of tows.
  3. If you aren’t sure where to park, call 336-770-3321 for immediate assistance

Signage, capacity and lot maintenance

Over the past year the Police & Public Safety Department has been replacing signage around campus to improve wording on the signs. Some work is still in progress. Work continues to improve signage, capacity, and maintain lots. Maintenance and improvements are funded by:

  • By law, state funds are not allowed to be used for maintaining parking lots. PERMIT FEES are the bulk of what funds the maintenance of parking lots and surfaces, NOT TICKETS, BOOTS OR TOWS.
  • By law, UNCSA keeps only 20% of a fine; 80% goes to the local board of education.
  • Parking fines and fees DO NOT pay for ANY police officer or dispatcher salary.

Construction Impacts for Lots O, B

Lots O and B are currently being used for construction/renovation lay down spaces. Facilities has stated work will be complete before classes start.
