Spring 2011 Permit Sales Information

January 3, 2011

 

To All Arlington Faculty and Staff,

If you did not purchase an annual permit back in the Fall, or if you are not on payroll deduction, this is a friendly reminder that parking permits for the Spring 2011 semester are now available for purchase online at http://parking.gmu.edu.  All permits sold online will be mailed to the address that you specify and you should receive them within 3-10 business days from the date of purchase.  If you are unable to purchase your permit until the start of the semester, you can still purchase your permit online and have it mailed to you.  Simply print off the receipt page and place it on your dashboard to use as a temporary permit for up to two weeks while you wait for your permit to arrive.

The Parking Services Office is also excited to announce the opening of the Founders Hall Parking Deck, located directly under the new Founders Hall Building.  The Founders Hall Parking Deck will be a reserved parking deck that guarantees all Founders Hall permit holders a non-restricted parking space in that structure.  Founders Hall permits will also be valid in the non-restricted spaces of the faculty/staff and general permit areas on both the Fairfax and Prince William campuses. The Founders Hall parking permits will not be valid in any of the other parking facilities on the Arlington campus (Foundation Parking Deck or the Truland Building). 

The Founders Hall Parking Deck requires the use of a unique electronic access device, so all of the Founders Hall permits will be sold (or upgraded) in person at the Arlington Parking Services’ office, located in the Original Building Room 108.  There is a $25 refundable deposit that is required for the access device.  Permits for the Founders Hall Parking Deck will be $260 (same pricing for Spring 2011 semester parking deck permits on the Fairfax campus), and will be valid through the end of the Summer 2011 semester - August 31, 2011. 

If you would like to upgrade your annual faculty/staff or payroll deduction permit to the Founders Hall Parking Deck, the cost will only be $125, or $20.84 per paycheck if on payroll deduction for the remainder of the academic year, plus the $25 refundable deposit for the access device.  These permits will be available on a first come-first served basis in a limited number to ensure that all Founders Hall permit holders are guaranteed a non-restricted space in the parking deck at all times.

If you have any questions about Spring 2011 parking permit sales, or would like some more information on the Founders Hall Parking Deck, please email us at parking@gmu.edu.
