Parking permit preorder period opens

The faculty and staff parking permit preorder period is now open. Preorders for the fiscal-year permits -- July 1 to June 30 -- are only available online. Over-the-counter orders begin June 1.

Parking fees will be unchanged for UNL permit holders, said Dan Carpenter, director of Parking and Transit Services.

Faculty and staff can order permits at and logging in with existing My.UNL account username and password combinations. The My.UNL username and password are the same used by faculty and staff to log into Blackboard, campus email and Active Directory.

Online preorders for fiscal year permits will be mailed to faculty and staff offices starting June 1. Online preorders for nine-month or semester permits will be mailed in August.

Carpool permits for faculty and staff are available via over-the-counter purchases. Those wishing to become part of the carpool program can inquire about lots or garages available.

Other requirements for the carpool program include:

— A carpool application must be completed and returned by one member of the carpool.

— All members of the carpool must be employed with UNL as regular full time, benefits eligible staff and live off campus. Spouses and cohabitants are excluded.

— After acceptance each carpool member must complete a permit application (all vehicles used by carpool members must be included on the application).
