A number of parking changes are planned for the summer 2010 months to enhance parking convenience on the Indiana University of Pennsylvania campus.
Most campus paid parking will be changed over to Pay-By-Space, but these new pay stations will provide the option to print a receipt for the Pay-And-Display option (see below). The Pay-By-Space spots are identified by yellow lined numbered spaces. The space number will be located on the asphalt at the rear of each space.
During the winter months, when the parking space number may not be visible due to snow or other obstructions, drivers may choose a Pay-And-Display option, which allows printing of a receipt for customers to display on the vehicle dashboard.
A new color-coded parking identification system will also be introduced over the summer for the Fall semester. Under this new system, the color of the parking permit accepted on that lot will match the color of the parking lot sign. A new color-coded parking map will be designed to further clarify parking lot designations.
Construction of a new parking lot, addition of new spaces, and renovation to three parking areas are also planned for this summer.
New parking to be created this summer includes a lot along 11th Street across from Memorial Field House and paved spaces along the east side of Zink Hall, down to the west end of Miller Stadium. These spaces will be open to faculty and staff permit holders.
The gravel parking lot for commuter, faculty, and staff permit holders on Glass Street by the tennis courts will be paved. The Clark Hall parking lot and the parking spaces on 11th Street between Oakland Avenue and Grant Street will be repaved.
Effective for the Fall semester, students who reside on campus and purchase a parking space at the Robertshaw parking lot will be restricted from bringing their vehicles to main campus for parking during weekends and evenings. This change is being made to accommodate increased amounts of visitors to campus and the need for parking lot and space maintenance and snow removal during weekends and evenings.
In order to help cover cost of parking improvements, the parking fine will increase from $10 to $15 starting with the Fall semester.
