Miami waives parking permit fees for employees this academic year

Miami University employees will not be charged for parking permits this academic year.

Parking enforcement will continue as usual, so permits are still required to park on campus. Employees who park on campus should register for a red permit, which will be free.

If employees have not already done so, they should log into their account in the parking portal and purchase their annual red permit via payroll deduction. The parking software will indicate that they are being charged $125 for the year. However, the payroll office will not do the deductions.

The free red permit for the year applies to Miami employees only, including graduate assistants. It does not apply to students, contractors, visitors, or anyone who works on campus but whose paycheck does not come directly from the university’s payroll office.

Miami has a record of those employees who already purchased their permits using credit cards. The Campus Services Center will contact those employees to let them know how the university will be refunding those payments — automatically, by check, or if they will need them to bring their credit card to the office in the south lobby of Nellie Craig Hall, formerly the Campus Avenue Building, 301 S. Campus Ave.

Regarding garage and other permits:

• Garage permits will still be deducted at the regular monthly rate (less the red permit charge). Those permits cost $25 per month for the North Garage and $12.50 per month for the South Garage.

• If an employee bought a $30 carpool permit or a free white permit, they may email and request a red permit instead and a refund of the carpool permit fee.
