Students have expressed strong concerns about the fact that Parking Services policies define “overnight” as occurring between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. Students have also said the overnight policy prohibits them from leaving their vehicles in Storrs commuter lots into the early morning hours. The most common issue raised to University officials was the fact that the Babbidge Library remains open until 2 a.m. on most nights of the week. As a result, students believed they risked being ticketed when they left their vehicles in a commuter lot until the library closed.
In response to these concerns, UConn has determined that effective immediately, permit parking regulations will NOT be enforced on commuter student lots between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. on weekdays or any time on weekends.
The weekday enforcement of permit parking regulations on commuter student lots will begin at 4 a.m. each Monday.
More simply stated, all vehicles parked on student commuter lots between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. on weekends must be off those lots before 4 a.m. Monday.
