Parking and Transportation Services - Campus Usage Survey

Over the past two months Parking and Transportation Services has conducted on site vehicle counting to determine the usage patterns on the main UA campus. In conjunction with this vehicle data, we’d like to ask you to take part in an online survey as an opportunity to provide your personal feedback on your own parking lot usage. Please follow this survey link to an internal campus survey. Instructions are provided at the beginning of the survey. Thank you for your time and feel free to contact parking@uakron.edu if you have any questions or concerns.

Overnight Parking

To park overnight in University parking lots, commuter students must now obtain an endorsement sticker for their parking permits. This sticker is available in the Parking Office at a price of $40 per semester. Overnight parking for commuters is limited to the following lots: the East Campus Parking Deck (Lot 1), the South Campus Parking Deck (Lot 36), the Central Hower lot (Lot 24), the Kappa Kappa Gamma lot (Lot 7), and the Martin University Ctr. Parking lot (Lot 52). Enforcement occurs between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. daily. Resident student' parking is unaffected by this change. For more information, see the overnight parking page.

Elevator Shut Down in South Campus Parking Deck

Elevators B1 and B2 located on the South side of the South Campus Parking Deck, the elevators closest to the Exchange Street Residence Hall are closed for repairs. The East side elevators closest to Schrank Hall are still functional.
