To support the increasing cost associated with operating, maintaining, and improving the parking facilities on campus, UMBC faculty and staff will see an increase in parking permit fees for academic year 2017/2018. This will mark the first time since 2007 faculty and staff parking permit fees have increased.
For non-gated permit holders, there will be an increase of $20 annually, for a total of $280. Permit holders in all gated lots will see an increase of $20 for gated lot access with a gate card in addition to an annual increase of $20. The total annual cost of a gated lot permit will increase to $380. The new bi-weekly payroll deduction will be $14 for non-gated permit holders and $19 for gated permits.
Faculty and staff already enrolled in the pre-tax payroll deduction program will not need to complete new forms. Anyone wishing to discontinue participation in the payroll deduction program must stop by Parking Services and complete a cancellation form.
Permits for eligible employees actively enrolled in the payroll deduction program during the previous year will be delivered to the employee’s department the week of August 21, 2017. Payroll deductions which include the increase will begin September 8, 2017.
