Advisory: Parking Rate Changes


Dear university community member,

We are writing to inform you of an upcoming increase in the cost of parking on campus.  Rates for new parking permits, daily parking, and event parking will increase effective June 1, 2023.  Our parking permit refund schedule will also be updated.  More information about this information including the increase and how it may impact you is available on our website.  We understand that this is unwelcome news as costs are increasing across a wide spectrum of services.  The decision to increase our rates was not made lightly, but was necessary to continue to meet the service needs of our community.


Rate Change Timeline:

  • June 1: Rates will increase for Student and Employee Reserve, Commuter, Garage, and Resident Parking Passes renewals.  Customers eligible to renew their permit will receive an email reminder when permit renewals open.
  • July 1: Rates will increase on the following permits: all new Student and Employee Reserve, Commuter, Garage, and Resident Parking Passes; Department, Vendor, Contractor, and Visitor parking passes; and Event parking rates and Daily Parking Rates. General permit sales will open on July 1.
  • August 10: The Academic hold threshold will be reduced to $100.


While the new rates will be in effect beginning on June 1 in time for parking renewals, parking permits from the 22/23 academic year will remain valid and at their current rates through the expiration date on August 9, 2023.  We encourage you to renew your parking permit as soon as possible to ensure availability.

If you have any questions or would like to speak about your specific needs, please contact our office by phone at (208) 426-7275 or by email at  Our team looks forward to the opportunity to support the university community through this transition.  Thank you for your partnership and support.
