7/20 – Employee Parking Permit Renewal

The parking needs of many employees significantly changed during the past few months and, therefore, the parking permits for Regular Payroll employees WILL NOT be automatically renewed this year!

ALL Regular Payroll employees who held UConn active parking permits on June 30 will be required to visit https://parking-employee.uconn.edu/ on or after Monday, July 20, to either opt-out or purchase a 2020/21 parking permit.  Parking permit payroll deductions will begin with the September 11, 2020 paycheck. As separately communicated on July 20, payroll deductions for parking will occur on a pre-tax basis effective with the September 11, 2020 paycheck, unless an employee designates otherwise as specified here: https://payroll.uconn.edu/pre-tax-parking-announcement/.

Area 1 permit holders who opt out of permit parking (by choosing NOT to purchase a Fall Semester parking permit) WILL later be able to receive an Area 1 permit for the 2021 Spring Semester.

Permits purchased by Regular Payroll employees during the summer will be distributed via University mail starting on Monday, August 3.

Special Payroll Employees, Affiliates and NEW Regular Payroll employees will also be able to purchase their 2020 Fall Semester parking permit online on or after Monday, July 20, either by following links or by visiting the Parking Services website.

Arrange your 2020/21 parking by Friday, July 31, to ensure you will have it when permit parking enforcement resumes on Monday, August 17!

Apply for the Fall 2020 U-PASS Now!

All eligible students may now apply for a Fall 2020 U-PASS at http://parking-upass.uconn.edu. The Fall U-PASS is valid from August 1 through December 31, 2020.

Applications for the U-PASS may only be submitted ONLINE.

Distribution of Fall U-PASSes will begin around July 15 by MAIL ONLY. When applying, please provide a complete and accurate mailing address to ensure delivery.

New Fee Information:

On-campus residents and all other students taking at least one class that requires in-person class attendance will pay the Transit Fee and are, therefore, eligible to receive a U-PASS at no charge.

Off-campus students who are enrolled in exclusively online courses during the fall semester may apply for a U-PASS but will be required to pay a $20/semester fee, which will be posted to their student fee bill.

Any questions regarding the Fall U-PASS should be submitted by email to parkingservices@uconn.edu.

Student Permit Parking – Prorated Refunds

The prorated refund of student-permit parking fees for the seven weeks that followed the University’s closure (March 16th) is authorized.

The prorated parking fee refunds (including tax) will be applied to the credit or debit card used during their purchase, whenever possible.  The credit and debit card refunds must be processed in batches due to financial regulations. All credit and debit card refunds are, however, expected to be processed by Friday, May 15th.

University checks will be issued for all other prorated parking fee refunds. Checks will be mailed to students’ home addresses.  These reimbursement checks may take up to six weeks to process.

Parking Refunds – Special Payroll Employees

Contracted special-payroll employees may request a prorated refund of the residual value of their parking permits online.

The refund amounts will equal each permit’s weekly value multiplied by the number of full-weeks falling between March 16th and the date upon which the permit will expire.  As a result, the amounts will vary between employees.

Refunds to those who purchased their permits using a credit or debit card will be returned to the card.

Refund checks sent to those who purchased their permits using cash or check will take several weeks to process.  Please be sure to correctly provide your current mailing address when completing the online form.
