Parking pickle?


All parking lots on campus require a permit, including the free lot. And permits can be acquired through Parking Services. Jake Buntjer/UVU Review

For some students, the most difficult thing about going to school is not the exams, projects or essays. It’s finding a parking spot close enough to make it to class on time.

Whether it’s needing to park at the Wolverine Service Center or by the Gunther Trades building, a permit is required. There are four types of permits available.

For those who drive a motorcycle or scooter, no permit is required to park on the UVU campus. There are designated stalls in which to park, reducing the risk of a citation.

Should a citation be given for not having a permit or parking where prohibited, it is best to pay it within 10 days from the date of the citation to avoid additional charges. All parking citations double after ten calendar days. Citations begin at $25.

There are two shuttle buses that run continuously, though there are no scheduled pickup/drop-off times. The shuttle runs Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The shuttle currently stops at the library, the LDS Institute building, Gunther Trades building, College Drive just east of the roundabout and at 1200 S. by the Extended Education building.

For more information, visit Parking Services on 800 W. University Parkway. They are open Monday, Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with additional hours on Tuesday and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. They can also be contacted at 801-863-8188 or by email at Parking@UVU.edu.

Make sure to purchase a permit before school starts. No one wants to be the student driving around campus all day because they forgot about a permit.
